A taco salad is usually a safe bet at any Mexican restaurant. Maybe they were having a bad day. A sprinkle of lettuce on a plate topped with dry taco meat is not what I was expecting. And, service was slow. Not that many people in there. Don't know what the problem was but it was a terrible experience.

One of the best Mexican food dishes I've eaten in a while. Great service at this cozy little spot with great food the whole family loved.

It's a spicy burrito and about the most flavor of any I've had in one bite. This is the most authentic Mexican restaurant north of the boarder. Tony the owner is as friendly as they get and serves all the food and drinks. If your looking for a margarita he makes the best.

Child's burrito and Enchilada dinner. Tony and his staff are so attentive. They also have the best quesadillas!!! It's worth the trip and the money. Fresh! Oh, and I'm not a guacamole girl, but his is the bomb.

We were just a little hesitant, given the amount of "liquor neon" on the outside, but those fears were laid to rest as soon as we entered. Tony greeted us enthusiastically and whisked us off to a table in this small establishment. He brought us menus as well as chips and salsa and soon returned to take our orders. Our... More

Guacamole is BEST ever!! Fresh homemade. The margaritas you may think pricey but it is so worth it. Smooth! Great time! Friendly and attentive. We have been going there 10 years.

Really authentic Mexican food in one of the oldest continually owner run restaurant in Gulfport. The family migrated to Gulfport in the '60s and have always had the freshest food. Great Mexican food.

If you want authentic Mexican this is the place. Tony will bring it out the way you want it. The margarita is worth the price. Don't let the building fool you it's clean and the best on the coast. For lunch or dinner a must stop on your list.
