Great quick eats downtown

Fantastic patio with huge blowing fans, and great conch fritters! The burrito was pretty great too, and a pitcher of Sangria tops it all off. Great casual setting with fantastic mexican eats!

I went to key west with my wife and we had never been there before. So one very hot afternoon my wife wanted to try mexican food and i went for it. The place seems nice and inviting... But it was a little hard to understand the old waitress greeting us... I think she really needs to stop smoking because... More

went there on Saturday night and was asked if I wanted to sit at the bar because it was just me. That was fine, small bar, 1 other couple there also. Sat there for over 5 minutes as the bartender washed glasses and made drinks for the waitresses. Never said 1 word to me until I got up to leave.... More

Wonderful carne asada. The best. Definitely hit the spot. The salsa was great. Nothing is better than when the food has the best flavor and the staff is wonderful. Atmosphere is warm and inviting. Not too crowded and very comfortable. And the key lime pie is wonderful as well.

We are from West Texas so we like it spicy and they delivered! The shrimp and lobster fajitas were the special and we were not disappointed! We also had Sangria and it was very good as well! This was one of our favorite meals in Key West.

Stopped in while walking Duval for a late lunch on a Wednesday so seating was quick as was the service, I had the fish tacos and my wife had the salmon encilladas (which I thought sounded a little weird but actually tasted awesome). The guacamole was a little dissapointing but otherwise everything was good. And as an added bonus we... More

We stopped in for a bite twice in the same week! This could possibly be our very favorite spot for Mexican. They have great vegetarian options and totally delivered in taste. I recommend the black bean and spinach chimichanga and the garden burrito. I would totally return and absolutely recommend this establishment.

Good: the taste of the nachos, the service. Bad: the nachos seemed like it didn't have all the veggies it said we would get with it, but assumed it was baked in?
