The Campechana Cocktail is a really tasty appetizer. The Mexican food is always consistent and really good, as is the seafood. Love this hole-in-the-wall….extremely laid back and you can walk right in from the beach!

Have eaten here several times & have not been disappointed. Food is really good. Love the shrimp tacos. Mexican food is also good. If you like fried shrimp, there's no place better. They'll also cook your catch.
