Very cool Mexican restaurant-lots of atmosphere! The chips were excellent and the food was good, although it could've been hotter (temperature-wise). Our waitress was a lot of fun and the service was good.

The food was probably sub par to be honest but actually reheated quite well. Their tortilla chips were amazing! We had two baskets and wanted more...

The place is adorable but the food is overpriced and below expectations. Service was good and pleasant. Not worthy of a return visit.

Food was great (chicken and steak fajitas). Served with lots of side items and was nice and hot. Plenty of food and the margaritas were great.

Cute quaint option to grab some eats not in the 4 W. Located near the beach, so it is a great after beach meal.

Food was OK not worth the money it was near $50 for two and not worth a revisit. Chips were very oily and not as crisp as others I've had.

Great margaritas. Wonderful queso fundido (which you don't find at many places) and hospitable service. Prices are what you'd find at any good Mexican restaurant. Specials are real deals.

Beer is good, they had fun cocktail cups you could take home as a memory. That was cute. My 8-year-old loved the atmosphere. We went around halloween time, so they had lots of decorations. Food is average Mexican, not bad though.

Don't be fooled with the outside or decor, the food is good! We had enchalada's and tostada's. Both dinners were good and service was fast. We will be back!
