Came for dinner during peak summer. Get there early, they open for dinner at 5PM and already had a line waiting. They quickly got people seated and orders taken. I split a plate of brisket nachos (large enough for two people to share as a meal). Was good. Toppings evenly spread out and not just piled up in the middle.... More

This was our second time to eat here and it was just as good as the first! We ordered lobster quesadillas (excellent!), la Cocina salad, and lulu's favorite. All were so good! The restaurant was very busy - we had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. Lots to do and see outside the restaurant while waiting. We will... More

We arrived at 4:45pm (because the restaurant doesn't open til 5pm) and thought we'd look around at the shops next door for a few minutes. At 5:15 we went in to get a table for 4 and the restaurant was packed already. We got the last booth without a wait time. (And there's probably 25+ tables/booths). So needless to say... More

If you want authentic mexican food this is not the place to go. Food was over priced and a huge disappointment!

Service was great! Food was cold and nothing to brag about! The only thing I can say is the salsa was really good :)

On the 22nd, my boyfriend and I went on a dinner date just the two of us. He had been to this restaurant before but it was my first time. When we walked in, the atmosphere was great. Very beautiful and warm, but our table was small and pushed to the side. I wasn't even sure it was a legit... More

Filled up on chips and salsa. The food came out cold and a bit salty. Ended up wasting $40. Oh well. It's still a good day. Peace.

Busy, but great salsa and food was great. Worth you wait. We stayed close by and walk over for salsa and cheese dips and drinks multiple times.

We've been here each of our last three trips to the beach. The kids love it, and it's not as expensive as some of the other options in the area. Service is fast and friendly, and we had no wait this time at 5:30 PM. It has some seating outside and a very large dining room. Or kids love the... More
