Your fish taco is served in "naked" and you go to the taco bar to add the additional items you want. The choices are enough to make everyone happy, and they do not have to "hold the onions" for non-onion lovers. Service was fast. Their...soup was Excellent. The price was very reasonable.More

This place has excellent fried fish tacos! for $2 each you get fresh fish tacos. I have also tried the shrimp ceviche which is priced at $5 for a small bowl and it has always tasted fresh, with small pieces of chopped cucumber. But I...usually stop in for $2 fish tacos and walk away with a total bill under $10, for a few tacos and a beer. Can't beat that! Service is a bit slow and we always have to wait for a few minutes to get seated and have our order taken. But for the price on the fried fish, it's worth it. Everything else on the menu can be a bit pricier $14 a plate, etc, so we just go for the tacos and they have been excellent every time. I took my kids and we ordered 3 fish tacos and flour quesadilla and paid about $11 total. We drank regular water to keep our bill low.More

Good food! Great place to hang out with the family over some fish tacos. Their homemade drinks are bomb.com. I love the pepino con chile drink.

Delicious fish tacos with mango sauce! Sam had the carne asada tacos and said they were yummy too. The tortillas here are perfect. We also shared the shrimp cocktail and it was fresh, flavorful and huge! Great value at this little spot run by a...couple of cute and friendly twin brothers. Name of the restaurant means The Seafood Twins haha.More

The food quality was very good. Lots of Mexican style preparation options. La Mariscada was my favorite. Ask For English Menu to clarify options if needed. Atmosphere is nothing fancy basically a whole in the wall and place was clean. Prices where reasonable.

Took the family to Los Cuates on a Sunday afternoon. There was about 7 people dinning and the rest of the tables were not only empty but also full of dirty dishes. One of the employees came over and told is it would be about...10 to 15 minutes before they cleared a table for us and that we could wait or go somewhere else, gee thanks? We waited since we had heard and read good things about this place. 10 minutes later were still waiting, no effort had been done to clear any of the tables, no food was coming out of the kitchen, and who I presume to be the owner was sitting down enjoying a chat with two of the customers (when he could have been helping). Overall, there was a very uncomfortable feeling coming from the place, maybe disgruntled employees, I don't know. My wife and I reassessed our options and left after about 15 minutes of waiting and complete disregard by the staff. Never going back to this place again and I suggest you don't waste your time. There are plenty of mariscos options within a few blocks in just about any direction.More

My husband and I enjoyed an awesome meal here the other night! We started with guacamole that had a great chunky texture with plenty of fresh salty chips. I enjoyed a creamy horchata (Mexican non-dairy milk with cinnamon) and he tried a michelada, and they...both arrived in gigantic mugs! We ordered their spicy shrimp tostada (they let you pick a spice level from 1-10) and their smoked marlin tostada. Both were so fresh and perfectly prepared! Our server even brought us complimentary cups of soup. The prices were very reasonable, with their lunch specials looking like an amazing deal. The service was great and the food was fantastic! Definitely a new go-to spot for us!More
