“A Hidden Gem in Oxnard, CA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

As noted in the other review, this place is in a sketchy neighborhood, but I have never had a problem going there for lunch. I would also add that it is a favorite of police officers, so if you see a cop car, he is probably inside plowing into a plate of food! Also as noted, the owner has won numerous prizes at Oxnard's Salsa Festival. They have lots of different plates to offer here, centered around seafood, but everyone goes for the fish tacos; they are excellent! Two thin tortillas, deep-fried fish, covered in shredded cabbage and a creamy sauce guaranteed to carry you back to the west coast of Mexico! There is a self-service chip and salsa bar and cold drinks and beers are available from the cooler. Nicely decorated with the most amazing ceiling painting you have ever seen outside of the Sistine Chapel! Buen provecho!

“Sabor = Flavor!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This gem is hidden on 6th St downtown east of Oxnard Blvd. Not the best location to show off the great food that they have. They have trophies on display from competitions like in the local Salsa Festival that Oxnard has once a year. Like Fish tacos? This is the place to go. We have never had a bad meal and been there about 30 times in 5 years. Check out the chalkboard at the entrance for specials. I love the enchiladas and my wife the sopas, everything we have chosen is like "chef" prepared at "cook" prices. Nice decor and good service, off street parking.
