Most Amazing Mexican Food!!

This place is by far the best Mexican food my family and I have had. The servers were great and everything came out hot and delicious. I don't think there was a moment that I had to wait to ask for another drink or napkins. I ordered the chicken quesadilla and the chicken was seasoned very well... read more

We may have been there on an off day, but a lot of menu items were not available, and the ceviche tasted like it had been sitting in lemon juice for several days.

The food was amazing and service superb!! The Margaritas were delicious. It is located on a little side street and well worth the visit.

This was probably the best place we ate while staying in Virginia Beach. In fact, it was so good we ate there twice. The ceviche is very fresh and tasty highly recommended.

Excellent food! Stopped in twice on my visit to Virginia Beach. I highly suggest the chicken and chorizo burrito. A little taste of authentic when traveling from home.

Went there due to previous TA reviews - Ordered the three tacos - chicken, pork, and beef. Overall quality was not too good. Meat was fatty and the veggies were too greasy. Good ambiance and service though.

I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and saw great reviews. I decided to stop there once while we were on vacation. I am so glad we did. It sits on a side street and doesn't look like much. But, the food was delicious, service was excellent and I would definitely stop there again! And the have a sauce they serve... More

Found this hidden gem while walking down the strip. Drink prices during happy hour were cheap! We did not try the food,but enjoyed the drinks. Nice little place down the strip.
