The food was really good and there were huge portions. I would recommend a visit there. My only issue is that they use mozzarella cheese instead of cheddar or jack. So weird

If you are looking for a taco only a dog could love, come here. Brought my two daughters here on a trip from Minnesota hoping to get a decent experience. What we received was the following - a kids taco that was less than three...bites and nothing but bad tasting beef, we got charged $12.00 for “free” chips, and we ordered lemonades that should have been $2.75 and we were charged $5.75. So, we had an enchilada, chips, a kids taco and quesadilla with lemonades for $86!!! Moreover, when I spoke with the owner the following day she offered no compensation. Go at your own risk!More

Nice staff and good food! We wandered in to this little gem- amazing drinks and the food was good. A bit more expensive than we are used to but for Miami- it was great!

I've read the comments of some of the other commentors who said they thought the food here was bland. That was not our experience. We liked the food well enough that we ate here on two different occasions! The place as clean, service was quick..., the prices were reasonable, and the food was good. They seem to be doing a pretty brisk take out business too. - TIP- if you request their free home made sauces, you can season to your taste, and believe me, the food will be anything but "bland"!More

I visited here with my husband right before covid pandemic closed everything. The food here does not come close to all other mexican foods ive had elsewhere in other states and cities.... People come here because it is close in proximity to the beaches and...their hotels. The tacos were inedible... I got Shrimp taco and it was flavorless. The shrimp had the flavor and texture of plain boiled shrimp. The vegetables of onions and green bell pepper also seemed to have been boiled or microwaved. Just ughhhed.. I paid $25 for a shrimp taco plate. My husband got fish taco and he also said it was flavorless. Never again. There are so many other restaurants nearby, I would say try those and Avoid this place. The other cons (i dnt even need to say but will put it out there any ways) the staff are all young latinos who dont seem to be in a rush despite the business in the restaurant. There were no customers ahead of us and we had to wait 15 minutes for the waitress to finally come take our order... Waitress pretended she did not see us for the longest time, The bartender pretended to be busy taking out clean wine glasses. I literally had to get up and stand at the bar counter to ask when we will be able to order... This place is a HUGE joke. Please avoid. Nothing good to say about this place other than the owner spent nice money spent on decoration and atmospehere only to have bad service and food lolMore

The place had 4/5 stars so I thought it was a sure bet...wrong. I got the fish tacos (based on server recommendation) and was sooooo disappointed. Unfortunately I got the grub to go. I could only eat 2 bites from 1 of the 3 tacos...- fish was mush and devoid of taste. The regrows beans that came with the meal had a strong shrimp taste...I didn’t order shrimp. Big turn off. The food was awful. On the plus side - my beer was good.More

We sat outside and had great service. It's located in a strip mall, so the view wasn't anything special, but the food certainly was. We had chicken quesadilla and the nacho island. So good! Inside the atmosphere was charming.

The place was amazing and the food especially the tacos were very good. I would recommend the tacos de carnitas or the tacos al pastor. The tortilla taste amazing. The only . downfall is the margaritas, I believe they are still trying to get the...formula down but haven't got there quite yet.More
