Every time I visit morro bay, almost every weekend, I have to come here. I ordered carne asada fries and they are delicious. I order take out and go to the beach, watch the sunset and fishing. Very relaxing.

I wasn't really blown away by the tacos. They were cold and the chicken wasn't really fresh. I order some guacamole with chips. My god. I think they dropped the cayene pepper in there.. it wasn't really tastfull. Never ate guacamole with so much pepper. For me not a topper at all.

We go here every time we are in Morro Bay. The bean taquitos are the best. They serve a heated (as in temperature) chile salsa/sauce that is like nothing I've ever had. Grab some of these taquitos, drive to The Rock, and have a picnic..... Heaven on earth! The carnitas and the carne asada are great, also. As a side... More

Service excellent. Tacos de asada excellent. My only issue was the hot sauce was a bit hot and I would have rather had a choice. The meat and tortillas were so good. No wonder this place has a line out the door!

This place looked a bit dodgy at first but the smell drew us in. The man at the till (maybe the owner?) was really welcoming and helped us with ordering. We eat a great deal of Mexican food, but the burritos with rice and beans were some of the best we have every had; the Chili Releno was also very... More

I think I may have ordered the wrong thing because I found the tacos to be just ok but the line was out the door and every booth in the place was filled. They clearly have more to offer than I was able to see. I would try them again but wouldn't order the beef or chicken tacos again.

Thank Steffitte
