My husband and I were staying at the Sandpiper Inn for 3 weeks until our home closed in escrow. We tried this place and honestly; didn't do a thing for me. The Carne asada has no flavor and is tough. It would help if they marinated their meat. Won't go there again!

Upon arrival hit the house made chips and fresh salsa bar. Then ponder which Taco/ all are huge and shareable. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Save room for homemade carrot cake- one piece is plenty for the whole table.

Everything about this place is great. The food is amazing, my favorite is the fish taco. I live in Los Angeles where we have a choice of every kind of fish taco but nothing measures up to this fish taco. The salsa, they have two and both are so good and the chips are hot. You can serve yourself. The... More

I've been hearing about this place for years. Finally went. All four of us were very disappointed. Food was ok, nothing to rave about. Won't go back.

We had dinner here around 5:00 (best time because later it's very busy with people waiting outside for a seat). Fresh Alaskan cod tacos were ordered by most of the adults, I had chili rellenos with a delicious salad, rice and black beans. The kids had cheese quesadillas and gobbled them up.

Fresh and delicious fish. We had the shrimp, halibut, tuna, carnitas and cheese enchiladas. Huge sizes so share! Chips and guacamole terrific too. It's a great little Mexican joint. Stopped after a visit to Hearst Castle.

After reading all the reviews that raved about this place, I was really looking forward to eating there. I guess the hype contributed to the level of disappointment. The chips were very good, and also very greasy. I ordered the halibut taco, and quickly regretted my choice. The positive part was that I liked the huge mound of salad on... More

Two words....carrot cake! Their tacos are excellent, but it's the carrot cake that brings us back. Get a slice to go. You will be munching on it for days. Each slice is huge! Cake is moist and filled with carrot and nuts. Cream cheese frosting is so good. Oh yumm!

We stopped here because we had gone to the Thursday farmer's market in the parking lot of the shopping center. We wanted some good Mexican Food while visiting California. We were delighted with the quality of the food here. We had Cod tacos and they were delicious. The cabbage like salad was very good and the portion is generous-could have... More

Humongous 🌮! One taco is plenty filled with your choice of meat, cheese and their special salad topping. Gigantic burritos and more items to choose from. Great for families and prices are very reasonable. No reservations but worth the short wait!
