The food is awful -canned and processed nothing fresh. I keep hoping they will get a chef who knows good Mexican food and start cooking fresh and authentic food. Beaufort could use a good Mexican restaurant utilizing the great local seafood - ceviche please!

Great experience. We had a wonderful waitress with fast service. Whether shrimp fajitas or a combination platter, everything was very tasty. Beware the margaritas! They are huge and strong on alcohol.

Stays open because of moderate prices and margarita. Food is never good. Everytime I eat there say I am not going back. Great location, just bad multiple experiences.

Went here for a late lunch. I ordered the fajitas with chicken, shrimp and beef. The beef and chicken were dry and over cooked, the tortillas were stale and the peppers and onions were hardly cooked. Overall it was very disappointing.
