I went on my own to this restaurant, and was surprised how I was ignored. The service dropped me off and disappeared for 15 minutes..I was just getting ready to get up and leave. The food was average, chips were bland. I wouldn't go back.More

We were at Carolina Beach for the week end of Cinco de Mayo and someone suggested we go here. It was busy, but staff was very friendly and food was hot and good.

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

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

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
