how the hell did we miss this place?

pretty easy, it's buried. i mean, we are locals. we live perhaps 1 mile from here and drive by DAILY and had no idea it existed. good thing too, as it's about the size of a canadian dime on the inside. but service is fast, there's a great patio with bar to keep you occupied while you wait and the... read more

Doesn't look like much since its located in a strip mall, but oh my goodness! First off, we were told about this place by a local, and were told to expect a wait. We are usually the couple that sits at the bar, so we were very surprised when we needed to put our name on the waiting list for... More

I love Mexican food and this seemed to be the best reviewed Mexican restaurant on Treasure Island. The small and crowded space didn't deter me, I know it means there is usually excellent food coming and I was not disappointed! My fiance and I were there on a Saturday night and there was a large line to put in a... More

It's a busy place but the food and margaritas are worth the wait! We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. We waited at the small outdoor bar. The bartender was awesome and the drinks were delicious. Once we were seated the service was great and food was fabulous!

This restaurant is across the road from the beach and was recommended by a local. We were not disappointed. Mexican food and plenty of it. Very reasonable prices. It is a bar and has outdoor seating. All in all, a great place for lunch and you will carry out leftovers.

Best Tex-Mex on the beach. Locals rule there. Try the Martguerita's, the best on the beach. Bet you can't drink three.

This place has inside and an out back patio seating area that is quite cozy. Food and service is far above what you would expect once you arrive in this mostly bar seating restaurant. If you want Mexican, don't pass up the VIP.
