Nothing fancy only 9 items on the menu. Very tasty and fresh food. Area is clean except for the bathroom. This is a quick in and out place!

Fish or shrimp tacos... These are battered and deep-fried in the style of Baja served with cabbage and Salsas, also in the style of Baja California. Very very popular. Do not recommend taking them to go... Because the breading will get soggy.

Good fish and shrimp tacos made fresh to order. Good place for a quick in and out bite to eat. Nothing fancy. Watch out for the salsas, they have a red sauce that will burn for hours.

The fish taco's are great. They were cooked perfectly. They have a hot sauce with a warning label. They sell soft drinks and beer. We had a nice visit and a great meal.

Perfect 5/5. Fish and shrimp tacos. 2 soft drinks and total of 4 fish tacos was around 13$. Would have paid more. Sauce that you can ad yourself really is quite hot as the sign says. Ja kyllä, se kastike on oikeasti tulista!

The fish tacos are excellent. Beware of the hot sauce-very hot but good. Very simple menu. Soda is sold by the can and they have beer.

This place had no AC. The floors were dirty. The tables are picnic style and uncomfortable. The menu is a beat up faded, ripped banner. The cashier was not friendly. The condiments bar was dirty. The salsa bowl was almost empty and was not refilled...More

After our first visit here, we're hooked! The restaurant has only 5 items on the menus, yet they're all delicious, fresh, tasty, and filling. We love the serve-yourself condiment bar which consists of salsa, chopped cabbage, sweet white onion, Pico de Gallo and an array...More
