This was a serendipitous find as we were just on our way back from the local Mercado when we saw the sign for the daily special "Fajitas de Cameron"-Shrimp Fajitas. They were priced at 60 pesos (about $3.50) and were delicious and had 18 medium...More

This is the kind of place I mean when I ask for "local food" recommendations when I travel. Busy, non-gentrified, friendly, attentive, clean and good value. We were the only gringos in the nearly full restaurant. 4 of us stopped in for a light lunch...More

You want to eat with locals? This is a great seafood place (I believe there are non-seafood options, however) with decent prices. It's about as real as it gets: ridiculously loud music, groups of locals talking and laughing, and big plates of great fresh seafood....More

This restaurant has great food and at good prices. Being a local neighborhood restaurant, expect loud jukebox music in a casual atmosphere. I have had numerous dishes here and have not been disappointed in any of them. A must try for authentic Mexico.

Returned once again and had a fantastic meal. The coconut shrimp is a huge portion of 14-16 shrimp served with rice and a salad. I added a little habanero sauce to the sauce served with the shrimp that added a lot of kick- but super...More

Sorry, I am usually there for lunch. But I am sure they are open by 9:00 at least.
