I found the place through TripAdvisor and tried it out. Good authentic food, swiftly serving and nice people. Worth the money. Good mix of Mexican and sea food. Was going there once again meanwhile.

Last establishment on the north side of 14 Street and the Hermosa Beach. Menus had breakfast, lunch, and dinner items. Very small footprint, so place fills up quickly in the evenings. Food is delightful. Prices are reasonable. Wait staff were attentive. Will return on future...More

20 yards from the beach and the promenade. Delightful place with excellent food, friendly service and tasty margaritas. Not fancy. But simple can be perfect. Had a funny waiter guy the two nights we ate there.

Food is always good and service is as well. Location is a big plus as you can sit outside and see the Strand and beach. Nothing fancy, but good food at reasonable prices.
