Ask for Jonathan! Excellent server and best part of our meal. Super friendly, attentive and fun. Food is like all Al’s on the island except with a Mexican theme. Fresh seafood, cold beer = good times.

Loved the margaritas. The best I've had in a long time. The fajitas were excellent. William gave us five star service. As a matter of fact, all the staff was friendly and made us feel at home.

I don’t remember anything about huge margaritas, but I wasn’t really looking for them either. Sorry I can’t be more helpful!
