My husband and I went here for lunch two days in one week because the steak quesadilla was so good! If you aren't a fan of guac you can request to get it on the side. The food is good, service is great and prices are very affordable!

Interesting little dive bar and burger place...this may be the hot little dive bar hang out, but we were looking for a place to sit and eat. A one man show at the counter/grill, so took a long to order and get the food. We ate it all, but it was nothing to brag about. Staff friendly, décor is beat... More

We stopped in for dinner based on the reviews. It's a tiny place, but has outdoor dining, as well. After ordering at the counter, where the service was fantastic, we waited a bit. But it was worth the wait. The burritos were very good and the salsa was outstanding.

Love the patio with music and a small bar...authentic chips and salsa with yummy pollo and carne asada burritos! The shrimp tacos were also delicious. The bartender knows many drinks so we enjoyed "happy hour"! Definitely worth a stop when you are looking for a super casual mom and pop place :)

This place was just across the street from our hotel. It doesn't look like much, which is why I tried it. It looks like a dive with only a few old tables inside and a cozy patio. But that's exactly why I wanted to try it. There was live music on the Sunday evening when we went. The food is... More

This is our must-stop on every trip. Love the live music while enjoying good guacamole and chips and cold beer. Can't beat a guy with a guitar playing all your classic rock hits!

Went here with my dad and he got a pulled pork burrito and I got a cali burrito. The food was great. We also got chips and guacamole that came with beans which were really good. The salsa was self serve and had a green which was spicy and a red which had a good taste. I would recommend this... More

A small place conveniently located near the beach in Oceanside. The grilled fish tacos are excellent as well as the shredded beef. The chips are freshly made and usually served warm with homemade salsa. The patio has happy hour all day with fabulous frozen margaritas. The shrimp burrito was very filling and full of shrimp.

Close to Oceanside Pier, great atmosphere and varied good live music. For the bloody Mary lovers, it's exceptional here.

We visited mid day, not crowded so we were greeted and service was quick, n which I like to sit back, relax and enjoy my cocktails! Food was good, too much cilantro for my taste so next time I will have them leave that herb off. Try it out and hopefully you won't be disappointed!
