Large portions, and great flavors

Parking was hard to find and since the parking here was ample we stopped to eat. (We also left our car here and walked around the town). We were here midweek, in the afternoon so not a busy time at all. We were seated immediately. There were tons of people in the restaurant everyone was in the... read more

OMG... I must have died and gone to heaven. The lobster bucket is amazing. Nicely spiced and grilled lobster tails, four I think paired with roasted corn on the cob, fresh tortillas, rice and beans and of course drawn butter....need I say more? ?? My son's burrito was humungeous and super tasty. He ate it all. The salsa bar was... More

The "self serve" tortilla chips irked me right off. Is it really that difficult to bring a basket of tortilla chips to a table? I selected the habañero salsa thinking it would provide the right kick. I've had fast food that had more spice heat. I seriously question whether there were actually habañeros in that salsa, because all the authentic... More

We met some friends for dinner here on our last night in town. I'm so glad we ended up here for the last feast. Everything we ordered was delicious and amazing. We had fajitas, chicken enchiladas, the epic burrito (really true to its name!), and the street tacos. The chips and salsa were great and so many flavors to try.... More

Joined work colleagues to enjoy the salsa bar, great atmosphere and good service. The Tacos De Tres Amigos were excellent and one of my colleagues really enjoyed the "Big Baja bucket". Recommend considering this restaurant if you are in Old Town.

If u don't eat seafood regularly, or are drunk after a convention, this place is perfect. If u want relatively decent service and, again, relatively decent fish, this is not the place for u. Yep, come by, get rediculously priced drinks and nasty food, coupled by horrible service, and then the next day stumble onto a much better place and... More

It's been a few years since eating here and it is still great! The lobster, shrimp, carne, pollo asado and corn on the cob are all delicious! Be prepared to get your hands messy but it is worth it! The salsa bar has many salsas to choose from and they also bring you "all you can eat" beans, rice and... More

I joined my friends for dinner here after comic-con. We enjoyed the fresh salsa bar, where we were able to sample all different varieties of salsa. We also loved the drinks. The service was excellent as well.
