Love this place, went here twice over the course of one weekend because we liked the food so much. The tacos are amazing, and they have this other dish called Campos something that's like little enchiladas covered in a ranchero and queso sauce, also amazing!

I went to Side Street with my family over the Christmas holidays. All of us were craving Mexican fare and Side Street didn’t disappoint. The servings were large and the prices quite affordable, even for a table of 6. The fajitas, fish tacos, and enchiladas...More

The table side guacamole was so good. Our server was so kind and knowledgeable. I had the burrito California - without lettuce or sour cream and it was great. The kids had fajitas, chicken quesadillas and tacos and everyone was happy. Great bar drinks too!

A small restaurant that isn't much to look at but well worth the visit. It's literally on a side street between Atlantic and Pacific. The staff was very friendly and the food was outstanding. Good size portions as well.

My boyfriend and I stopped here mainly for their $4 margarita happy hour from 4-8pm. The margaritas were better than we expected them to be! We also ordered chips and queso. The white sauce they had with the chips was delicious and the salsa was...More
