At least in my opinion. I am crew from a cruise ship. Trust me, we know these things. Came here with my friends and girlfriend. Will come back. Sometimes they have live music. Try the beef and lobster, it's amazing.

Sergio from Sergio's silver recommended this place. We almost couldnt find it. No sign, just the name on a door mat. Hands down the best mexican food I've had. We had the seafood platter and it was loaded with great food. Excellent choice if you want authentic mexican food.

Thank Doug P
