Enjoyed my visit to this restaurant. Good service . My food was both fresh and delicious. I had three tacos (chicken, shredded beef and shredded pork) with black beans and rice. The beef was my fave. I’ll visit again if I’m in the area.

I like to try this restaurant occasionally for a change. It's a little different than your usual Mexican restaurant but the food is good. A nice little quaint restaurant with some good food.

I only go here for the fish tacos, which are a little pricey but very huge serving and very delicious every time. They don't have to go menus, which seems like an odd marketing concept but maybe they will get some in the near future.

I like this place a lot. The service is always excellent, the atmosphere is light and the food is fresh and delicious. I had a huge salad that did not disappoint, very filling. Salsa is also excellent but I would prefer the cantina style chips...More

This is where we bring our out of town guests. Great fresh food, this is where the locals eat! Just wish it was a little bit bigger but we have only had to wait for a table a few times and not very long.
