It may not look like much but wait till you see your food!

We were told to eat here and only order one fish taco at a time, so we did. WOW! We could only eat one taco and they weren't expensive either! Then we took a slice of their "Killer Carrot cake" home. Let me tell you-DON'T LEAVE WITH OUT GETTING A SLICE!!! Rebecca waited on us and we all say... read more

I met my brother in Morro Bay for a couple of days. We dined here on a recommendation from a friend who lives in Morro Bay. This place is amazing! Great food and service. We had the scallop tacos, best scallops I have ever eaten. Don't miss this place......

Noisy, crowded, and always a wait...but the food is worth it! If you can order Take Out it is a good idea. You can get your food quickly and take back to the comfort of your hotel room, campground or vacation rental. One taco can be really cheap or expensive depending on what you order within the taco.

If you order off the special menu you will not be disappointed but your meal will be costly. If you order off the regular menu you can feed a family of 4 for less than $20 bucks. Food is always great and always consistent. There is no printed children's menu but you can order a burrito or quesadilla for the... More

The food is great. The servers are pleasant. The atmosphere is noisy whens it gets really busy. The salmon tacos, chicken tacos and carnnitos tacos are all delicious. The burritos are enormous.

You will be pleased with the meals. The fish, in anything you might order, is always the best available. The salmon has always been a favorite in anything I have ordered. The portions are huge, very tasty and you probably will want to come back over and over. You never know how long the wait might be, so be prepared... More

This is a casual Mexican food restaurant..a little out of the way which is great because it is busy! The wait was about 15-20 minutes only though, their kitchen staff was really pushing the food out. I had a carnitas combo plate, which was huge, enough for two. The meat was very tender and flavorful, loaded combo with rice, black... More

Since we are local we try and eat here. We like the fish taco, the Calamari plate, the taquitos and my new favorite, the Mussels!!!! So it can seem a bit pricey if you walk in and see a taco can cost $18, but realize its a large meal with the freshest of ingredients that can be shared. The chips... More

We were warned, however,!! Amazingly popular, a great find, funky inside, but fresh, huge portions of california fusion mexican food; very inexpensive for the quantity and quality; lots of fresh vegetables, massive amounts of meat, and excellent HOT (finally) salsas to pick from, at the chip bar. Decent box wine, fast service, noisy, and fun!!

My husband ordered the sweet potato enchilada to go. It was wrapped in a flour tortilla and was topped with green sauce. It also came wth greens, tomato, guacamole, sour cream, black beans and rice. I ate part of it and I thought it was great. It was very tasty. I would order it for myself if I have the... More
