Ample adult beverages. Popular with locals. Plenty of seating, very little wait time. I had soft chicken tacos. Delicious!

We came for a late lunch, early dinner. Not many people there, was seated immediately. It is on the main drag near the pier. Gave us tons of chips. Good salsa. They had a hard time to determine what was spicy and what wasn't. We...More

We enjoyed the food at this convenient restaurant. It is larger than it looks from the outside and is tastefully decorated. Not extraordinary but good solid food preparation. Nice sized portions. A welcome change of pace from all the good seafood restaurants in the area.More

We stopped in for dinner at this place as it was really crowded. We ordered fish tacos which were terrible. The tortilla was dry, fish was dry, and they used so much sauce to compensate for all the dryness. I would probably would not return...More

The menu is pretty standard Mexican fare. The quality is also pretty average. I had the carnitas. It wasn't as tender as in most places. The portions were generous though. Service was attentive. The wait wasn't very long.More

This is one of our favorites in the area. Great price, good portion sizes and food is delicious. We usually split the Burrito Con Pollo Asado and the kids enjoy quesadillas. Chips, salsa, and queso to start. Well worth the trip.
