On a busy August Saturday night, we crave for a dinner out somewhere. Drive around to the Spit, not wanting to wait in line, and back to town, we chose the Mexican food. The service was great, and food is decent, we are pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed the meal. We will be back.

I grew up going to this place as a kid, it has the same owner but not the same grub. The service was poor considering how many servers they had and the number of people in the place at the time. The food was not good outside of the fresh Guac one person in our party had. If I had... More

Good Mexican food when you get tired of eating seafood! Friendly service. Lots of room. Open late, so you can go there after you are done fishing for the day.

We visited the restaurant for lunch on Sunday after church. We were quickly seated and waited on. The food was delivered promptly, hot and delicious. I order the chicken fajita and they were very tasty and more than enough for one person. I would recommend this restaurant and would definitely visit there again.
