You may not plan on coming to Charleston for Mexican food but this place rocks! Get the street corn! Fish tacos are great too! Fun atmosphere!

Loved the casual atmosphere and I thought the tacos were good. Margaritas were also quite good. Nice outdoor area. Interesting fun decor. Overall I would recommend. Glad I came.
