Our group all got the Baja tacos and the blackened were much nicer than the fried - too heavy. Friendly service and fast. Nice place to stop on your first day in town.

Excellent food! Salsa was so fresh! Seating can be inside or out. Great gelato next door for dessert!

We went to grab dinner one night a few weeks ago and it was by far the worse experience I have ever seen. We sat outside and the sun was breaking through the clouds so we casually asked to sit under the empty umbrella and our server said no, I asked why not and she walked away pretending that she didn't hear me. Then our food came, my sister-in-law ordered Seared Ahi Tuna Tacos which consisted of sesame encrusted tuna in wonton shells, topped with avacado and asian slaw, with sesame dressing and tsumai sauce drizzle (taken from the website) but what she got was some kind of fish laid over 3 flour tortilla's and no sides or anything. She got up gave it to my waitress and she said sorry and walked away without offering something else or anything. So she sat there fuming while the rest of the family ate their mediocre mexican food. My meal was a simple burrito but they even screwed that up by filling it with so many jalapenos that I couldn't eat it. I asked to speak to the manager and no one came out. We paid and left vowing never to come back ever.

Always have a good meal here. Portions are generous. Black beans are really good. Food is made well. We go here every time we're in Marco. Service was extremely rushed this time even though the place was EMPTY! We had barely touched our appetizers and they brought the entrees! No room on the table and we had to tell them not to take it when the platters were barely touched. But it won't stop us from going again they just need to adjust that lol

I guess we expected a lot considering the location and the catchy name. However, the food (our party of 8) was just average. Nothing to rave about. The salsa was very chunky (not a good thing) and the chips were stale. The peppers in the fajitas were way overcooked, pale and mushy. Not much flavor or originality and the waitress did not know the menu or what was in particular food items. Good luck ordering gluten-free - very small selection and apparently unable to customize. Will pass on this place and keep looking for good Tex/Mex somewhere on Marco Island.
