Ordered to go from our golf cart. Tacos were good and fair sized. Asada torta was huge! Very yummy. Floors were being mopped when we got there, very clean. Order came out quickly. Also, there is a drive thru window in the back of the building. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Great meal and on Tuesday we had $1.50 margaritas. Tacos are unique with a pleasant addition in the meat was potatoes. Employees were so helpful and nice.

Reasonably priced food, lots of it, and tastes great. Lots of locals eat here and well worth the wait and the crowd in the middle of tourist season.

I went to this restaurant with family and let me warn future customers, the service here sucks. We waited almost an hour to get all of our food,( only one plate was served, out of 5, ten more minutes for other plates) finally when we did it was somewhat burned and stuck to the skillet. The waitress had attitude, i... More

This mexican restaurant had a good selection of food at reasonable prices. It can get loud in the restaurant when there are a lot of people. It is popular with the locals and can get crowded during peak times. The breakfast specials are a good value. On the day we went, they had 2 eggs, 2 pancakes & 2 slices... More

My sister and I stopped in to have a margarita. So we sat at the bar, we were served chips and salsa. The staff kept asking us if we were going to order food. We made it clear we only having drinks. The food was good looking but don't bug people so much.

We dine here every time we're in Port A. The breakfast is always one of the best in town. The Mexican dinner specials are good and usually less than $10 each. Tuesday nite $1.50 draft Dos Equis are a hit. We believe this to be the best Mexican restaurant on the Island, althought not the best we've ever had elsewhere.... More
