Besides the long standing great Mexican food, they have a great new menu of specialties that are outstanding I had the specialty "mexican" ravioli, what a surprise. My friend had another outstanding item..we were really pleased when we walked away, or was it the margaritas"

Who would have thought that you would get great Mexican food in Moss Landing. Outstanding flautas and grilled prawns in a chipotle sauce that was amazing. The owner came by to talk for awhile. We have a great time and had great food.
