We stopped here on Easter Sunday. There was only one other couple in the entire place & it took ages for anyone to come take our order. We didn't bother ordering any food, only a couple of beers.

The Crab taquitos and margaritas are fantastic! Great service and amazing view. So Happy Ricardo grabbed us off the boardwalk and invited us up for real authentic Mexican food and $1 margaritas. Don't be fooled by the $1 price tag, they are delicious

Definitely! My son loved the food and thought the sodas in the bottle were cool. Also, we watched the other tourists climbing the ladder sculpture and this kept him quite entertained!
