Fantastic joint. We had both the shrimp ranchero and the diablo. Nicely done. Daughter had enchiladas. Weekday happy hour at lunch. Tough to beat at their price on the island. The salsa and chips were homemade and awesome.

So I went with a large group of friends, so service wasn't very good. Had we been a smaller group, the waitress probably would not have been so overwhelmed. But then the food took too long to come out and when it did they forgot...More

We had selected this place because of the reviews here on TA. It was busy but no wait. There is a pretty large menu but nothing really exciting about it. The drink menu has no pricing so beware. We all ordered Mexican food. While most...More
