Casual setting but upscale taste with a large selection of fresh fish choices, my Alaska cod burrito was truly delicious. The best Mexican in a looong time. Finally! Absolutely worth the stop for hwy 1 travelers.

Yes there is cabbage on the taco but after 4 days of eating fried fish and... More

My wife read about this place so we decided to check it out on our way out of Morro. We got there early so there wasn't that big of a crowd but there was a lot of people taking orders to go. I tried the red snapper tacos and my plate was huge! The snapper was grilled and had a... More

This place is always a pleasure! Smiling servers, fabulous Mexican food, the freshest fish imaginable, and a genuine coastal feel. There's usually a line, but it's fun to hang out with surfers, tourists, bicyclists, and families while you wait in the salt air. Huge servings, too!

This place is great if you are very hungry, since portions are enormous.

Had lunch with 2 friends & all of us were surprised by the large portions. My dish was delicious and fresh. We all took portions of our lunch home since we couldn't eat it all. The carrot cake was good but since it came right out of the frig, it wasn't as good when at room temp. Service was excellent.

Fine dining, this is not, but good food, YES. There is almost always a wait, so be prepared. You can munch on free chips and salsa while you wait at least. My husband and I usually order the Carnitas Tacos. It is one very large chunk of carnitas with a lot of greens and a side salad, although the salad... More
