Great little mexican restaurant

We love stopping in here for some chips, salsa, good tacos and a margarita. It can get busy and the hostess area isn't very efficient at times but if you get here when it isn't busy, it is a great place to have a quick bite to eat. I love the specialty chicken tacos with the soft corn tortillas.

Food was delicious and we had a large party, but they seriously need more staff. It was painful how slow they were to refill chips and drinks. Guacamole was awesome though!

There is a reason for the empty parking lot and it isn't the road construction....this place is horrible. I have no idea how they stay in business. The food and service were so lacking that I will NEVER return.

I read a few of the other reviews that said that the food here was good. I had wondered if they had ate at a different restaurant. Two of us decided to eat at the restaurant even though my first instinct would be to NOT eat at this restaurant due to seeing other establishments packed with people and relatively few... More

Had a fabulous dinner tonight at this wonderful restaurant. There were four of us and we shared the salsa and chips. They also had a great white sauce with the chips! We are new to the area but enjoyed the shrimp quesadilla and the steak fajita. The table side guacamole was delicious. Don't miss out on that. Margaritas were delicious.... More

It's good, nothing out of the ordinary but it's good. Wait staff are generally attentive. It is exactly what you would expect from a typical Mexican restaurant with slightly higher prices due to the resort town location.
