This place is well known for Taco Tuesday. With over 15 tacos to choose from. During the summer it is party central. Enjoy the wonderful outdoor seating. It is SO southern California

We are snowbirds living in Palm coast, this is one of the best restaurants in the area. Great Mexican and great seafood. We have eaten here many times, never been disappointed with food or service. Nice music and good atmosphere too.

What a delightful restaurant! The food was fresh and delicious, some of the best food of this cuisine I have ever eaten. The restaurant itself is very casual and coastal. It is actually open air which is very cool. The staff were as friendly as could be, offering service with a smile. Portions were so big that you will not... More

More Tex than Cali Mex - we really liked it! - Queso was delish, margaritas on the rocks - great, fajitas good - could do with more tortilla's, the platters were great, maybe vamp up the guacamole a wee bit - but good all round - we will hit this place again. - will follow up when we have had...

We enjoyed eating here after a day of sightseeing up and down the coast. The menu offers a broad selection of meals (smaller and larger portions). No wine on the list, but they will bring you the one from the wine bar next door. This is a casual place which is really an outdoor patio with heat lamps. Go on... More

This is a great place to dine after a day of surfing or beach strolling. The food is good, cheery and colorful. The staff is friendly too, and you will leave in a good mood. Lunch here is nice too, on a warm sunny day. Nice casual is suggested wear for here. It's a place for a sundress.

Chicken tamale was very good, while fish tacos were not very good at all. Reasonably good nachos, guacamole, and burritos. Fun atmosphere and good service. But overall, just average Mexican food.

We ate at En Fuego Cantina while staying in Del Mar for a couple of days. We certainly weren't able to sample the menu but the meals we had were excellent. I had the #7 combination and my wife had the chicken burrito. We tasted each other's dishes and agreed that both were very tasty. The physical facility is average... More

This place is a favorite of my friends and for the life of me I dont understand why. I have been here many times food is lousy and the service is even worst than that. Living in San Diego we are spoiled with great Mexican food but this place is not one of them. People go there to socialize mostly... More
