“Lively, fun atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

It's hard not to have a good time here. The decor is tropical vacation themed with just enough tv screens to watch the game. The guacamole is fantastic. I also recommend the grilled mahi tacos!

“Fun environment, good food, great salsa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I loved the way they combined indoors with outdoors. Colorful chairs at mosaic topped tables with umbrellas in the "outdoor" part - the floor beneath you is sand, a water feature nearby. I asked about what they do when it is really hot and when it gets cold and they got it all figured out - perfect temperature year round.

Staff was pleasant, some even super-friendly.

I loved the two different types of salsa they served - one a milder, even a tad sweet verde sauce and the typical pico de gallo type of salsa. My lunch - Ancho Chile Mahi Tacos - SO good. I recently moved here and I will definitely be back!!!

“Don't go..”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

The food was expensive and not very good. We ordered a taco salad and there was so much liquid it was more like a soup, no joke. They also over charged us..

“Loud,Raucus mexbar”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

If you want a loud Mex sports bar type place with average food,and lots of young folks drinking lots, this could be your spot. If you're over 30, would like good food and service and might want to speak to your dinner companions, this is not for you. We like a 'rita or beer with our dinner too, BUT. Lots better choices in North S'dale.

“Ole...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

Although the crowd was very young compared to us, the Mexican food was above average for a bar first, restaurant second. A little pricier than other Mex restaurants, but worth it in portion size and taste.
