We stopped on a whim on our way from Cayucos to Morro Bay, and it was a wonderful decision! The food was very good and the service was perfect.

Tipped to this place by locals, we were not disappointed! Very friendly, outstanding food. There are lots of common items on the menu, but we went for the regional specialties from their area in Mexico. I especially enjoyed the octopus tostada.
