One of the worst mex places in the area. Expect to have the craps for the next 2 days. Bonus...you will likely need to park several blocks away...try not to crap your pants upon leaving.

Worth looking for this small restaurant right on the beach. Cute patio with nice decor. Fantastic shrimp enchilada, Hermosa enchilada and steak tacos. The steak meat was very good! Fresh guacamole with every meal. And the homemade chips with spicy salsa were wonderful!
