Outside seating was perfect for what we were looking for. The margaritas are amazing. Our sever Toni was great even though it was her second day. It does get busy though. So once you can get a table it's great.

We came here mostly for the atmosphere and mango margaritas. We had dined here last summer and the food was great. This time I was looking forward to the chips and salsa but they were a little bland. Our entrees came out super fast because we were here on a Monday but we were hungry so we didn't mind. We... More

Stopped in here to grab some food while in the area and wanted to check this place out. Seemed pretty crowded but got the slight suspicion that people were more drinking than eating. Service was okay, although sitting outside, the waitress recommended we not get frozen margaritas even though we were dying for them since they would melt too quickly.... More

The chips and salsa were given as a free appetizer. The salsa is pretty bland and no heat. I had Chicken Empanadas and my son had the pork sandwich. Empanadas were shredded chicken deep fried in some dough, a little too crunchy and bland. the avocado spicy sauce given with the empanadas was good though. My sons pork sandwich was... More

We had stopped back our first time was really good. Our waitress Layla was the best, fun and upbeat. The food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. We sat overlooking the boardwalk. We will definitely be back again.

My friend and I stopped here for some Mexican food while strolling the boardwalk. We ordered drinks. I ordered a peach margarita on the rocks. I ended up getting a frozen one instead. We ordered our meals and my friend wanted beef tacos and got shredded chicken instead. Neither of us complained and just rolled with the punches. The food/drinks... More
