Stopped in here while on the boardwalk to get drinks and some dinner. Service was excellent. They were very busy and we were not ignored! Food was good, and prices are average. Will most likely visit again!

We had the classic boardwalk fare, not Mexican. Pizza, fries, cheese steak. The cheese balls are the best, but everything else was okay. Everything on the boardwalk is kinda overpriced so don't be surprised by that. Service was okay as well.

Was there Saturday night decent service and ok prices. Tuna was good. They had a better then average margarita, which is a good thing. Friends with me didn't care for it much but he's from Texas so very critical about Mexican good.

Typical Mexican fare. Only overpriced. Nothing really stood out. Food was ok. The free chips were great but the salsa was awful. Tasteless and watery. Service was really slow and barly saw our server.

This is a sit-down restaurant. I believe that one of the dishes served was a dish that included a couple of tacos, refried beans etc., but it is not a take -out place.
Do they ask you if you want to be seated upstairs or do you have to tell them?

We walked upstairs and waited to be seated upstairs. They asked us if we wanted inside or outside - It was beautiful outside - great view.
Can you make a reservation or is it walk in only?
