We had a great late dinner here. The fiesta nachos were great! My friend's burritos del mar were also good. They served my husband chicken instead of beef in his chimichangas, but he enjoyed it.

This place is dark and it looks more like a cantina than a restaurant! The food was not good but the guacamole was just awful, think about a mix of cream cheese with green artificial coloring! How can the reviewers say this is the best...More
