Best Mexican restaurant in Port Washington area.

Just got back from Beanies and have to say what a pleasant experience it was! The blended frozen margarita's were excellent. Loved the salsa that is served with the free tortilla chips, way above average of most Mexican restaurants I've been to. Had a humungous stuffed steak burrito that was also... read more

The food was okay, but nothing outstanding. I had a single enchilada and a side of rice. The rice was not warm and it was just the enchilada on the plate. I don't think a little bit of lettuce and tomato would have been too much to add. Also when I asked if they had shredded beef, I was told... More

Years ago, I traveled to Playa Del Carmen and my sister and I went out bar hopping on the town. There was a bar that had swings surrounding it. We sat on the swings and enjoyed a beer. When we walked into this bar/restaurant, that was first thing I noticed and it put a smile on my face! What a... More

Three visiting women went here about 8:00 p.m. on a Sunday night when not much was open in Port Washington. I am well traveled and I live in New Orleans, so I often eat at all kinds of restaurants.

Last weekend we stopped into this gem of a place. First of all I have never seen swings at a bar before. This little unexpected pleasure made us think this place is special. The restaurant was very busy and we where able to sit right away. When our server came over we asked her what was the occasion that they... More

There's nothing better than knowing you thought of our place as a local "gem," Joe! From our swirl margs to those Grilled Fish Tacos, I'm so glad your meal was a hit from start to finish. I hope the rest of your time in Port Washington was just as fun, and that we get to welcome you back again soon!... More

So glad you loved our shrimp cocktail, Chris! We source the best quality seafood, so it's great to hear you felt the flavor justified the price. Can't wait to hear for what you go for next time! All the best 'til then, Marcia, Owner More

Sorry but this place wasn't very good; below average at best. The beans and rice were definitely from a can. They didn't properly staff the kitchen or the wait staff to handle the sailors in town for the annual race. The servers were overwhelmed and food & drink orders were incredibly slow. I found this to be especially annoying because... More

The one thing I can assure you is that everything is made from scratch. We have never and will never use beans, rice or anything from a can. We take great pride in the fact that we make our food fresh daily. You are correct about our staffing problems. As hard as we (( and every other restaurant in town... More

Simple food served dried cold and tasteless. Did not think one could ruin a taco salad, bean tacos and guacamole. Salad meat was older and dried and cold. Bean tacos were refried beans on a taco shell, also older dried and cold. Guacamole had such old bitter onions on the top that I could not taste the guacamole. Not sure... More

First off the service was excellent. The food was so far from authentic. Should have walked out after I tasted the salsa.

While I'm really happy to hear that you were impressed by our service, the fact that the dishes fell short for you is really disappointing. We don't typically hear that kind of feedback on our salsa, but I appreciate you offering your honest thoughts. Sincerely, Marcia, Owner More
