“Fish Tacos worth the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

They were indeed--the plate comes with three tacos, composed of fried fish and just a bit of cabbage. Understated deliciousness complemented by Joe's hot sauce.

“yummyyummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Yes yes yes! This place was a real surprise. It was recommended to us by a friend and we are so happy they did! The chicken was amazing!! The owners are fantastic too. Always happy and smiling (unlike many waiters at other restaurants in the area).

“One of the best roadside dinners in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

We ate there twice on our trip and not only are the owners so kind, but the food is amazing! Great rotisserie chicken, rice & beans and plantains. It is right along the main road so you can watch everyone walk by and take in the scene. We also did take out one night and it was packaged well and sooo yummy.

“Best Fish Tacos Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Really sweet restaurant that you can stroll off the beach and have an amazing lunch. They are known for their chicken which is also amazing..i just have to order fish tacos when they are on the menu! The service is great and all the food is made fresh and in house. Check it out- you can't miss is- the logo is a chicken giving the shaka sign!

“BILLY AND HIS WIFE ARE AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Family friendly spot to grab a great lunch or dinner. Fish tacos, fish and chips, and of course the chicken. We ate her twice during our 5 day stay and everything was great. The proprietors are friendly and a pleasure to visit with while enjoying a great meal. We will be back. Thanks Again, Heath and Tess.
