This has to be the best Mexican restaurant I ever ate at. The food was delicious and the presentation was very upscale. The ambience and decor was high energy and very Mexican. We started with guava margaritas which were delicious and the attention to details was impressive with a special red salt on the rim. I ordered the shrimp da... More

I enjoy this place a great deal. I always have a good meal and the location is awesome. Service was terrific and the drinks were great. Casual atmosphere is nice and the place always has an "energy" that is fun.

I went here with a friend of mine for dinner. The place was crowded and food was good. They do not take reservations, so you have to make your way there. The drinks are good and I enjoyed my food. A place you would like to visit if you are in the area.

Just went there for lunch and had a very nice experience. Japalenos margarita is excellent and we had salad with crab meat which was very good. View over the ocean separate from the road but still ok. Table next to us with screaming kids ... that is unfortunate and maybe the waiter could have said something. Anyway we still enjoyed... More

It's nice and big, good people, great food and affordable prices.There's no reservation and the place is always packed, you'll have to wait a little bit to be seated, but it worth it.
