The food is simply prepared and fresh. Drinks arrived quickly and were not watered down like some places.

This is very good restaurant. I know we ate here twice, but maybe three times. A good selection of menu items. I ordered fish and shrimp dishes. The food was good and fresh. The service was great. They also take credit cards.

Better than Las Panchas, in my opinion. The shrimp "a la diabla" was delicious, as were their refried beans and vegetables with habanero oil. Worth coming at least once!

The food here is good. However the drinks are excellent. Every single drink we tried was delicious. The margarita Zapata is the best margarita we have ever had. The anchojito was also very good. We aren't big drinkers, but appreciate a good drink. You will...More
