I ordered the shrimp fajitas which were a disappointment. It was very bland, the tails were still on and some of the pooper shooters weren't cleaned. Tomatoes, onions, and green peppers were perfectly cooked, but there wasn't any seasonings and it didn't come with all...More

generous portions, well seasoned, salsa is awesome, busy at times for good reason, worth the wait, serves beer, fresh made chips, multiple choices of wet burritos, two could eat well for under 10 bucks if you choose right and lots to choose from

Great value and good mexican. The only feedback would be they didn't have many options for vegetarians. My husband enjoyed the fish tacos. Loved the appetizers and service was quick and friendly. Excellent guacamole and chips.

Went to Newport Pier for the boat show. A block away from the main drag, a hole in the wall joint, is this busy little sit down Mexicanish atmosphere. Though the food is good, I thought the quality of the ingredients could be better, the...More

The food is excellent. The old guy that runs the register has an attitude problem. He is rude, unhelpful, and basically doesn't give a crap. I won't be going there any time soon. As I sat there for 40 minutes you did not bother to...More
