Doesn't look like much from outside, or even when you walk in, but the food is delicious! Big menu, lots to choose from. You're served chips & salsa right off the bat, which I like. We each order the taco trio, which came with rice...More

We visited midafternoon when the place was nearly empty. The service was fast and friendly, and the food was wonderful. I loved the tacos--especially the puerco. The guacamole was also quite good. Would definitely return.

We loved the side street cantina so much we ate there twice while at the beach for a week. The food and drinks were excellent both times! The service is a little on the slow side, but everyone was very friendly!

Affordable, delicious family food. Service was friendly and efficient. Our whole family ate for a fraction of other restaurants. Their white salsa is addictive!
