I was not disappointed at all; they were delicious. Great place for Mexican food on SPI. Can't report on the seafood there, will have to get to... read more

We stopped in late after attending a fundraiser. When we pulled into the parking lot we thought they were closed but decided to check. What a pleasant surprise. The service was terrific. Everyone was very friendly and attentive, I ordered a pasta dish with a creamy poblano sauce. It was delicious! I will definitely order it again! My husband had... More

Laid back staff, cheap sub par food which came overcooked, nice atmosphere, but disappointing compared to other restaurants on the strip.

We really enjoyed eating here. The shrimp was very good as well as the sides. I added two Bacon wrapped shrimp, which were excellent. My wife enjoyed her fish very much. We also order chips and salsa. The salsa was very unusual and worth trying , if only, because it is from any salsa I have ever had. Great place,... More

The fries had some type of crunchy coating and were not greasy. I also loved the fumi salad which is a cabbage slaw with a little... More
