Cute little bar on the beach. You can sit at the bar or get it to go. They allow substitutions or exclusions. The tacos are excellent, some of the best I've ever had.

Tacos are made with a flour tortilla and grilled similarly to a quesadilla. Took the tacos to go and sat on the beach for sunset.

Yum! Quick tacos & very friendly local staff originally from Texas. Not all beer was in stock, but through spring break many businesses we’ve frequented on this trip have struggled with similar inventory issues. Would go back if we find ourself on vendantas beach again.
