As authentic as it gets! This little place is heaven for people who love Mexican Food! Very nice family runs this little gem of a place. Mom in the back cooking and the daughter takes care of the front (when i was there anyway). Definitely worth the stop when you are making your way into Cape May!

Well.... In just one word, I would say the food is " Amazing". I am a vegetarian but I could get all options I can easily select from. AND YOU SEE...., everything asked for is just lime I wanted for. I liked the Beans especially and the Hot spicy dry chilly sauce... Which brought my taste buds to a new... More

I would highly recommend eating here! We arrived 15 minutes before closing although we did not realize it until later. They were very welcoming! Food is wonderful, staff was friendly. Could use a little bigger parking lot but not much room to expand! Restaurant was very clean and tables were comfortable!

Been here several times- great nachos, burritos and tacos. On our last visit our daughter tried one of the Italian options on the menu and loved it.

We ate here for the first time this week and it was excellent. Service was great, the food was delicious. It's a BYOB. We've been saying for years "I want to eat there" and glad we finally did. We'll be back!!

My husband I were riding around trying to find a place for dinner when we spotted this restaurant. I love Mexican food, so this was perfect. It's a small place with chairs that look as though they belong on a boat deck. Though the menu boasts of Italian and Mexican cuisine, we stuck to the Mexican food. We enjoyed the... More

Food was great! And the service was out of this world! The guacamole was freshly made and it was the best I've ever tasted.

The menu boasts of being both Mexican and Italian, so I ordered the chicken piccata. The chicken was okay, but the sauce was like water, and the capers did not taste right. My husband ordered Mexican. His food came out cold inside. Unfortunately, nobody stopped by to ask us if everything was okay. A nice glass of wine may have... More

We had an excellent scrumptious unplanned meal at 5 DeMayo tonight. My steak fajita was beyond the beyond. My husband had a shrimp and scallop burrito. It was to die for... My son age 8 is the gregarious sort and he informed our waiter that he thought" The food was so good God must have made it!" Affordable great service.... More
