Very good food and service. The menu is fairly expansive with a few unique items. The drink selection appears to be a big draw to this establishment.

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!

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.

My wife and I were looking for an affordable option for some of our favorite watering holes and eating spots in Beaufort. WE look for "clean" food, good/prompt-courteous service, wide selection, and at a fair price. We will continue to frequent this location of this...More
