Have been here enough times to know I won't be back. Too expensive to enjoy ($50 for 2 drinks, quesdadilla; $125 for lunch for 4); too spicy to eat. Other, authentic Mexican restaurant options nearby.

The restaurant is across the street from the beach.

Restaurant may look a bit run down but the Service and food is recommended

We were served by Chad a young server at the restaurant. Very attentive and prompt in his service .

Must visit the toilets - paintings of ladies watching you as you attend to the call of nature

Generally we had a nice evening

Great drinks but food can be very spicy be careful enjoy their specialty drinks though. Wait staff is friendly but can be slow at times.

We randomly stopped here for lunch.
My husband and I both had the beef taco and then a chicken taco. Both were delicious! Chips and salsa were good. Chips seemed fresh.
The reason this is only three stars is for the following reasons:
1. They should offer more than one salsa option.
2. Our service was slow. It wasn't like it was crazy busy.
3. My sangria tasted like it was store bought. Very generic tasting.
4. If u are going to offer a kids burger on the menu, you need to offer fries too.

Location- good on the main road
Bathrooms - clean
Price- acceptable

Wow is this place wonderful to work with! I can't thank them enough for setting up a last minute rehearsal dinner after our other venue bailed. The seating was great, a back corner of the downstairs restaurant. The menu included 3 pre arranged choices, salad, dessert for everyone. They even provided printed menus with the bride & groom names. The food was very good and very plentiful. The only thing I got from the guests was that the salad dressing was a little spicy. Pitchers of margaritas were fantastic. I recommend this restaurant for your parties big or small. Wait staff was wonderful as were Amy & Christina from Group Sales.
