This little "Mexican" joint is what I'd call "better than a kick in the head". It's absolutely nothing to write home about, but if you're dying for some slightly-off variation of Mexcian food, it'll fill the bill. It's not even really Tex Mex or Cali...More

Enjoyed this casual Mexican eatery by enjoying Guacamole & blue corn tortilla chips, seafood burrito, surf & turf ( steak and scallops with cabbage ) and virgin Margaritas. We brought our own tequila to this BYOB restaurant. Would definitely recommend this place to friends.

Definite LBI take on Mexican food & the service was very nice. Not a huge selection, but what they offer is good. Also, would recommend leaving room for dessert.

One of my favorite restaurants on LBI. The yellowfin burrito is outstanding, the rice and beans fantastic. We've tried most things on the menu and are never disappointed. Laid back atmosphere, clean and the surf decor and videos make you feel like you are on...More
