“Fresh salsas and Tuna tacos ~ YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

This spot is a bit pricey for a family of six, but the food is divine. We will always make it a point to stop in here when in Cruz Bay. The tuna taco special that I had was wonderful, and everyone in our party (nine of us) thoroughly enjoyed their meals.

“Best meal on vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

We just got back from St. John. We took our 5 kids. We tried hard to find places to eat that would please everyone and not cost a fortune. Unfortunately, on the island that is difficult. We had a great meal here. Kids ate the nachos. We had Tuna tacos and a pulled pork burrito. It was all delicious and the waiter was so nice. The margaritas were fantastic! Definitely not a cheap meal, but there is no where cheap to eat on the island. Even the pizzas are $23 each. It was worth every penny and we would eat here again in a second.

“Eh...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Well my wife and I went here for lunch and it was the most expensive meal we had the whole time we were there. It was definitely very very average. The drinks were fine, the food was average, and the service was decent. However, for the price it wasn't great.

“This place is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

Great food, triple size margaritas for $15, and really friendly staff! We had a wonderful time spending happy hour here, sharing stories with fellow customers and staff. Couldn't ask for a better experience. We are Texans, so we know Tex-Mex and it was great. Definitely worth a stop. Disregard picky-picky reviews from others. If you want good food, good drinks, and good company, this is the place. Nice and cool inside, too. Thanks Corbin for a great afternoon-
