Authentic is correct

in the past we would frequently go here for lunch or dinner, but there was recently management and menu changes which are not favorable.

We tried this Mexican / Cuban spot on our last visit to Daytona. Great drinks, and our waitress recommended a grilled pork dish that was truly outstanding. Tortilla soup was very good also. Okay setting and central location on Grenada near beach and shopping. Nice spot for family or casual meal.

This place was so tasty 10 years ago, so I thought I'd give it a try. Big mistake. Took a few bites, and for the sake of my stomach chose not to eat any more. Good choice!
