Went here two days in the row we so much liked the fresh fish ceviche they make out of tuna, mangoes and sliced red onions. Caution - real habanero pepper garnish! Kids loved the chicken tacos and quesadillas. Don't order premade Guacamole, go for the table side one. They open at noon, so if you are an early lunch eater... More

Loved this place! The service was fast and efficient and the food was fresh and delicious. We got the tableside guacamole and we scraped the bowl clean! The staff was not big on smiles or small talk, but they were courteous and the prices were reasonable as well. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We saw this place from our hotel room. I was tired if the normal kid fare. So we went here. It was nice, a little mom and pop type place. Prices were very reasonable and service was good. Food was yummy. I would absolutely go there again!

Our favorite mexican restaurant of all time. The best chicken fajitas we have ever had. The drinks were excellent. Can't wait to go back.

Service was really bad. We had Vincente wait on us. He greeted us promptly at the front door. Walked us to our table, tossed down our menus and walked away without a word. He did come over shortly after to get our drink order. I specifically ordered a margarita without salt. My wife ordered the same & I made a... More

Love, love this place, would've ate there everyday! A block from boardwalk, the best Mexican food I've ever ate! If you like guacamole, they make it by hand, fresh, right in front of you. Cute restaurant. Funny waiter, I think his name was Jose! We all ate every crumb from our plates.

We went here around 5:00 to get a jump on the dinner crowd. It was pretty empty and we got seated and got drinks, chips, and salsa pretty quick. Once we ordered they did not really check on us. Our waiter was very interested in the cashier. But the food was fabulous. I am a salsa snob and this was... More

I had the street tacos and was pleasantly surprised. I have yet to find real Mexican food in Virginia, but this was actually somewhat authentic. Great salsa and hot sauce. Just watch out for the drunks at the bar.

Was in the mood for Mexican and came upon this restaurant by chance. Our hostess was less than interested in us but the waiters were good. We were going to order the shared Parilla but they wouldn't serve it with tortillas, go figure. We switched to enchiladas supreme and they were anything but. We have been to Mexico numerous times...
