“Enjoyable Place in a Quaint Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Funky little Mexican place in a great location. Ample free parking which was nice in this busy little village. We got there at lunchtime on a Saturday, so we had to wait 20 minutes or so for a table. It was well worth it. My wife had the fish tacos which she thoroughly enjoyed. I had a green chili burro which was quite tasty. The best part of the meal, however, was the chips and salsa. The salsa was freshly homemade and looked different from what I was accustomed to. It was quite chunky and had great flavor.

“Good homemade salsa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Good service and good homemade salsa. Chili relano burrito is a favorite, but the prices are too high for the type of food.

“Great lunch spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

After a long day at the beach we stopped here for a late lunch...the service was friendly and prompt. We ordered vegan nachos which were HUGE. I had a fish enchilada which I really enjoyed. The really test of Mexican food is the next day and my digestive system was just fine lol
