We stopped in for lunch and really enjoyed the food. Some of us got Mexican food, some got seafood. Everyone was happy and the service was good. Good Mexican beer!

Our one meal out other than our hotel was here. My husband had the tortilla soup & I had the green enchiladas. Service was friendly, food was good & prices were reasonable for a tourist town.
