WoW! I hate to write this up for fear tourists will find and over run like most of our town now. This is like mex/tex meets seafood on steroids!! You name it they have it. Crazy large menu and lovely server says " all done up fresh by hand you tell us how you like it we make it ie.. no peppers etc. They bring nice chips salsa right away like good old days tide you over with nice cold drink reading menu and deciding :-) All we had fish, shrimp, calamari, lobster wonderful. Really want to keep this place for myself.

Dined here for the 2nd time and it was even better than the 1st! Each of us ordered sizzling Fajitas which were absolutely wonderful....Steak & Chicken served sizzling hot with 3 tortillas. Wonderful food, extremely friendly and efficient staff. Can't wait to go back again!

This is a small restaurant in a shopping center, seats maybe 40 people. Service was good. Beer was available and machine margaritas. Not your typical Mexican menu as mariscos of all types are featured. I had the grouper a la plancha and my wife had shrimp with garlic. Grilled vegetables asn rice completed the dish. We had flan (we seem to always have flan) for dessert which was very good. Other dishes I saw included a whole baked fish. There is wide selection of seafood from the menu.

We've been a fan of this restaurant for years & have frequently ordered takeout. But we have been unable to order takeout because their phones are usually not working. We keep calling, the phone rings & rings & rings until there a=is a message saying:"Please enter your remote access code." THis is not a one time event. It has happened many times before. One time I went into the restaurant & mentioned this, and they told me that "no, the phone is fine." We must have called a dozen times from 3 different phones tonight. Don't know how we can order.

This little restaurant serves authentic dishes and has a monumental size menu. We chose the green Chile chicken enchiladas and the beef chimichanga. The pork tamales were good too. The grilled shrimp and vegetables was delicious. Portions were good and prices reasonable. The only negative was the chips and salsa. Just ok. Chips likely from a bag or made ahead and salsa was watery. And only one small basket for four people is rather meager. They charge extra if you want more. We will come back. But I wish they would revamp the chips and salsa.

Went with sisters, we were in the area shopping. Restaurant was in a strip mall, decent parking. We were greeted and seated immediately , got our drinks and enjoyed the chips and VERY nice salsa while looking at tg5e huge menu. Lots of seafood, beef, chicken and pork as well. Sister #1 got a chicken quesadilla, Sister #2 had a steak burrito and I had three tacos- al pastor, carnitas and shrimp,along with an order of rice and beans. Everything was freshly made and piping hot, all really tasty (that pastor...) rice and beans were also very flavorful. Good portions and good prices. The place filled up with local families as we were there. Definitely will go back

I have never been here before and I’m glad I stopped in. I was greeted with chips and salsa right away. I had an agave margarita with sat on the rocks yum! I asked for spicy salsa and they brought me another salsa and yes it was spicy! I ordered the steak tacos Mexican style (cilantro and onion) and they were amazing! The rice and beans could not have been better! I will definitely be returning.

Excellent specials, 1 fish & 1 shrimp taco served with rice and refried beans. An order of the most tender and delicious muscles I've had anywhere. Friendly and fast service too. Oh, and free chips and salsa too! A great find.

While “gringos” go to places like Rocco’s Tacos, quietly slip over to this place for real Mexican food. It’s not much to look at both outside and inside - it’s small, cramped, and almost completely windowless. It’s just a simple plain eatery and the kitchen turns out excellent food.

The seafood dishes are especially great and mostly dinner options. The lunch menu, 11-3, is very reasonable and quite good. Very appropriate for a family or group of friends. The service is excellent and very friendly.

My 94 year old neighbor and I went here. I had the fajitas and loved them. We ordered the rice drink and it was delicious. He loved it so much he went back three times the next week. I think they are the best in town. Friendly owners and wait staff.

I'm just in love with the food. My favorite is steak taostados. Mariscos 🌮 Tacos. Mariella and her family, along with the other staff makes you want to return again, and again.
