“Worth Checking Out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I would recommend checking the restaurant out if you're in the area. The food selection is pretty good and the prices are reasonable. This is definitely a more Baja or Cabo style of Mexican food than your Tex-Mex or New Mexican type of mexican food. I don't know that this would be my "go to" place but I will return. The fish tacos were very good. Our server was excellent...she didn't miss a beat and was very patient with the two small children we had at the table.

“Pretty good Mexican joint near the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The food here is pretty good, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. Their seafood is decent, but otherwise nothing much is special. Location is good.

“Too loud on trivia nights”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

We frequent restaurants doing trivia. The people running trivia at this place are too loud and obnoxious. Ruins the atmosphere.

That aside, the food is okay. It isn't what you would expect for a Mexican restaurant. You will have to remind your server several times for drinks or other requests, like silverware. The late night specials have really good prices. The only thing I really enjoy here are, go figure, the chicken wings. Get them in their special dry rub and they are to die for. Other than that, it's just an average place.

“Good food, good service, and Great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

If we are ever at the beach, this is the restaurant we turn to when seeking food with a Mexican flavor. It does serve the usual Mexican type food as in other restaurants, but just like the United States and the different foods of different regions, this restaurant offers those various foods of various regions of Mexico. I recommend it highly if ever in Jacksonville or the Jacksonville Beach area.

“Not actual Mexican food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

The food was good, but it wasn't Mexican food. I have eaten there twice and both times the dishes were Cuban/Puerto Rican. It is a little dark inside and some of the tables are cramped. I would eat here again now that I know what to expect.
