Super chill with great food!

A great find at the beach. It was getting late so we opted for takeout. Food was delicious and affordable. The gentleman who greeted us was friendly and a pleasure to talk with.

Amazing food. Great service. Great Sangria margaritas. Can't recommend a restaurant more higher and dinner for two was less than $40

Came here for lunch. It's within sight of the ocean and very unassuming, kind of like a family cafe that's been around for years. There's an outdoor seating area with simple tables plus a half-dozen indoor tables. I only had one dish -- snow crab enchiladas -- but it was wonderful. It was tasty and the portion was just right.... More

Does not look much from the outside but a genuine great breakfast restaurant. Keen service with a flavour of humor added. Really good breakfast and best so far on the coast.

Very tasty, homemade tortilla chips, good but mild salsa. Rice and black beans were very well done. Would definitely come back. Good service.

The owner makes sure his customers are comfortable. The purse patio is my favorite place to sit. Chips are the best!! And all meals I've had here are delicious. One of my favorites

Our hotel staff, along with many on this site, had recommended this Mexican restaurant. It was awesome!! The food is authentic and great portions. The service was also very good. The burritos are huge...and wonderful tasting. The homemade tortilla chips were also tasty. I would definitely go back here and recommend it to anyone. We sat on the patio and... More
