This place is a joke!!! Not real Mexican food and the rice was not completely cooked. Also this place is expensive and not to mention they add there tip before giving you the check. Would NOT recommend!!!

When you want to get your Mexican food fix in this (wonderful) seafood town, you won't be disappointed here! Great food and prices! Tried deep-fried avocado, which was really good, but portion was too large. Easy to find, easy to park, great service!

Consistently the best Trio Fajitas in Destin. Their margaritas are excellent with dinner and the service is excellent! Definitely recommend this excellent Mexican restaurant!

The salsa is fantastic! The guacamole and spinach cheese dip were great additions. The fish tacos were good but I highly recommend the Phat Boy burrito. Grab a fresh margarita while you're there too, if that's your thing.

We arrived as they opened at 4pm off the beach location. Place needs a little TLC on small patio. Food and drinks were good.
