Go on taco Tuesday and scoop up $2-5 tacos that are amaizing. The carne asada are so good. They have drink specials ever night and a free salsa and chips bar. The drinks are fun and the bartender ladies were awesome.

My husband and I were there for happy hour yesterday, March 16 at 5.30pm. We put in our order for food and drinks immediately as Happy Hour only extends to 6pm. At 6.30pm we received our food!!!! The drinks were mediocre, but the food was pretty good. When we received our check, we discovered we had been billed full price... More

Stopped in Oceanside for lunch. While walking around marina, we asked where was the best place to eat. Hands down, people told us "Rocking Baha". While waiting for waiter, I saw people going up to a salsa & chip bar, so I followed suit. Great choices of salsa. My wife opted for trio lobster taco and I had fish and... More

My friend and I came here to eat/drink before we went Skydiving on a Saturday afternoon. This place was awesome! We sat at the bar and the bartenders were so friendly! We had their version of the tequila sunrise (Tropical Sunrise) and it was absolutely delicious. I had their Epic Carne Asada burrito and this thing was huge, but so... More

The second time, we were with 4 adults and 2 children and again, the food and service were terrific. They have a good variety of seafood but also have other menus items for those who are not fans...

This was the third time I came here to eat. I can never decide what to eat. We love the chip and salsa bar. The only one thing I wasn't a big fan of was the oyster shooter, It was a weird combination. That was only one thing. The young lady who served us this time was the best and... More

We stopped here at "early" Happy Hour. We had great margaritas and Happy Hour Tacos. Everything was very good - including our server. Live music was began shortly before we left. He was very good also.

Ok , first lets talk about the smell. It is obvious they do not clean with bleach maybe ever. Had no idea what gluten free meant. Food was really good and the chips/salsa bar was good, but returning is not going to occur
