My husband asked for jalapenos...three cold ones came on a plate, so we asked that they be grilled .... More

The food was awesome and the service was great. The exchange rate from dollars to pesos was very fair. All of the food came out hot read for us to eat. We would go there again.

We went here for lobster. For $18, we got 3 small half lobsters and a margarita (for Mexico, the margarita was very disappointing!) The lobster was just OK - not bad, not great. Very friendly place, great service - a little annoyed by the strolling mariachis... they are constant and looking for $$.
