My boyfriend saw the giant green limo and sign that read "the most unique food in Carolina Beach" and he was hooked on going there. I was a bit skeptical because of the reviews...most people were complaining about the food and I was verrrrrryyy hungry! It was raining and we were walking so we decided to head in for shelter and give it a shot.
BOY AM I GLAD WE DID!!
The staff was awesome everyone said 'hello' and seemed like they were so happy we were there even though the kitchen was closing soon. I got a strawberry margarita to start and boyfriend had a pina colada! They were so fresh and definitely used real coconut milk not that in a carton, bar crud! For dinner I ordered the wedge salad with the lime vinaigrette and 6 chicken wings with a sweet/lime sauce. Boyfriend ordered the cuban with fries. My salad was so fresh and the lime/cilantro flavors were amazing. The cuban was dripping with pork goodness!
What we realized is that the bad reviews for this restaurant are stupid. It says RIGHT ON THE MENU that everything is made to order and fresh. That means that they may run out of something and that the menu is small so you know that everything you ordeedr was home-made with care. This is not the spot for you to eat a bunch of crummy fried food; it's more about getting a taste of the twisted limes "twist" on Mexican!
So ignore the bad reviews and give it a try. If you always order chicken fingers when you go out to eat then don't go here and try the McDonalds down the street, maybe that's the variety the other reviews were looking for!
