Excellent casual Mexican food experience

The perfect after-beach Mexican food hang. Nice atmosphere, friendly service, decent prices, and I can't say we've ever had a single menu item that was less than good. There might be better Mexican food to be had in the general vicinity, but the whole package here is very well executed, making it... read more

All fresh, extremely fresh food. ALL was good, including their Signature Skinny Margarita - under 200 calories!

There are so many choices of great food on the menu but my favorite is the shrimp tacos! We came here with friends and everyone tried something different on the menu.... We all were satisfied! The Baja fish tacos, flautas, Brandi salad were tasty (but the shrimp tacos- were the best). We also enjoyed a pitcher of margaritas mmm. We... More

Once was enough for us - after reading a good review in the local Dana Point newspaper, we thought we'd try it - never again!! The chile rellano was the worst mess ever concocted - a large lump that was the half-raw chile stuffed with cheese presented with beans and rice. I couldn't eat it - the waitress refunded credited...

I LOVE TACOS!!! These were maybe the best ever, possibly beaten out by a little place in Santa Barbara that I can't remember the name of. The shrimp taco has big, meaty shrimps that have been grilled and then piled up with roasted onion and peppers and some kind of sauce...I think. I inhaled that deliciousness so fast I didn't...

The Best Fish Taco We Have Ever Had, we ate here when we started dating now that we live miles away we make this a weekend getaway date joint and it never disappoints. Neither of us are from the area so we both learned about the beauty of the fish taco here and years later we keep coming back.

Cute place but not authentic or good Mexican food. For fish dishes they use tilapia or Cod which was probably frozen. Come on they are right by the water. The chili relleno is full of cheddar cheese (yuck, why not use Monterrey jack or some Mexican blend) and a terrible red tomato sauce. The shredded beef taco has beef chunks... More

Good place for lunch - excellent fish tacos, cold beer, outdoor tables...hits the spot. Have eaten here several times and never been disappointed. Wouldn't reccomend doing take out for the tacos, they just dont travel well, but eat them there for sure.
