A very pleasant surprise- the food is more Mexican than tex-mex- with fresh ingredients and not covered in heavy sauces and cheese. Many gluten free and vegetarian options-the portions generous and the service friendly- would recommend highly

A large group of us ate here and everyone's meal was fantastic. Very authentic, delicious Mexican food. The restaurant is BYOB and extremely casual so take note. If we had stayed longer in Spring Lake, we definitely would have returned. Highly recommend!
