I've been here multiple times and the food is great. Margaritas hit the spot. Brice, the bartender is awesome.

Stop by for a margarita, with crunchy fresh tortilla chips and tasty salsa. The best thing about this spot? LOTS of food for your money.

This restaurant is good for groups. There were 5 in our party and we all enjoyed every bite. The salsa tastes so very fresh that I used it as dressing on my salad.

Food is always good. We always eat here when at beach. It's a little loud but we know that so it's not an issue for us. Gets busy but usually isn't much of a wait. Good prices.

I have eaten here multiple times and have always enjoyed my meal. The salsa is freshly made as is the guac. Their choices are all flavorful and alert you if the dish is spicy. Service is great!

We went for dinner on a Thursday. The portions are large and everything was delicious. Thursday night Margaritas are in special for $2.99 and they're huge. I highly recommend it, especially on a Thursday.

I had a burrito with black beans, it was tasty and we didn't have to wait long. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff.

Average Mexican food. Steak was a little chewy and not as flavorful as I have experienced at other places. but, service was fast and friendly. Drinks never empty and prices average for Mexican.
