Very Good Value for the PRICE

Food was tasty. You can get a filling, delicious meal for $6-8. Don't come for the charm or atmosphere. Also, no wifi. However, if your goal is to eat, you'll be pleased you stopped in. I had the chicken quesadilla with bean and rice. Nice seasoning on the chicken. You can tell they... read more

Great prices. Fast food kind of offering of Mexican food. Packaged chips industrial salsa. This is not home made or fine food kind of place. Good enough for what it is. Recommend? Yes Return? Yes.

Not only does this place have the most delicious Mexican food in town, it has the nicest employees too! The food is perfectly prepared by the owner and is so reasonably priced that you will find yourself going there often. The carne asada is my favorite! It is seasoned perfectly every time. YUM!

Don't let the outside make you turn around. This is Seaside, and a little rugged is par for the course. Took the whole family after a long trip from the east coast. Fresh everything, beer was ice cold, service friendly and wallet friendly prices.

I'd like to give this place a 2.5. I do not understand how a restaurant can close at 5PM? Do you realize how much business you lose by closing that early? Do you care? Must not, as your apathetic order taker / waiter who spent more time cleaning up to get the hell out of dodge than he did ensuring... More

After reading all the great reviews my husband and I decided this would be a great choice as we drove into seaside. I ordered 2 asada, 3 pork with cabbage, and order of shrimp tacos w/rice & beans. The guy working at counter asked me if there were more people with us because that was a lot of food. I... More

Don't go for the atmosphere, but this little Mexican place has great food and reasonable prices. I also liked that you could order small portions. The veggie quesadilla was loaded with sauteed zuchini, celery, and peppers. Yum!

I loved the pork taco, piled high with cabbage. The food my family and friends had was satisfying. Rice, beans, burritos. Staff was very friendly. Locals like to frequent this place, that says something. It's walking distance to beach and downtown area.

All the locals eat here. Enough said! The focus is on the food, not the décor. Simple Mexican style food that is well done. I eat here regularly (as do many people who live in Seaside.) Possibly the place to eat if you want to see other locals. While it isn't open on the weekends and often closes for part... More

I was reading online reviews and we (party of 5) walked in. Decor is low-key, but then BAM!, the food arrived. After the first bite, everyone said how delicious their food was. I had the chicken burrito Enchilada style covered in sauce. Huge delicious burrito filled with pinto beans, cheese, rice and pulled chicken. Authentic Mexican, go, you will be... More
