I’ve been traveling to Blacksburg my whole life but somehow missed this hidden gem until last weekend! It’s sooooo good! I had the banging shrimp and white fish tacos and they were the best I’ve ever had. The queso was a great appetizer and went...More

Stopped in here, knowing nothing about the place, and enjoyed a meal. We started with the salsa trio, all quite good, none very hot at all. I enjoyed the beer-battered white fish tacos very much, though the guacamole pasta salad on the side was only...More

Pretty good place. Service was good and decent draft beer offerings. Free chips and salsa was nice. Really enjoyed my tuna taco with a side of guacamole salad. Typical college town type spot. Nothing too special as far as atmosphere. Will go back to try...More

Definitely my favorite place to eat in Blacksburg. Not your average fish tacos. They pack some great flavors into their tacos and their side dishes as well! And you can't go wrong with the margaritas here either. Highly recommend the "El Cheapo" which is only...More
