“Capitola”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Love their shrimp enchiladas! Capitola Beach is just steps away. As locals, we usually don't visit during the summer months, but it would be a great ending for a day at the beach.

“Good Food.......”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

When we first walked in, I was skeptical. The place looked a little dingy and well.... bad. But our waitress was immediately wonderful and the food was scrumptious! Good beef tacos and chicken enchilada!

Has been in the village for many years. Good mexican food. Small dining room. Can be busy during lunch. Across street from the small Capitola Beach.

“Very mediocre Mexican food at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

About every 20 yrs or so my wife visit this spot ...we are always disappointed.
Great location..but below average food.
Only positive comment is carnitas dinner...but we will never go back. For the tourists only! There to many other good Mexican restaurants in SC County
