This is the best margarita ever. We tried spicy margarita and I’m in love. Their fish tacos are wonderful. Great atmosphere and close to where we stayed. If you like Mexican food you’ll love this place

Warm welcome. While taking our order, new guests arrived and waiter immediately left our table for them. That happened all the time. Were without drinks for quite some time during dinner. Several beers from menu not available. Food was good though!

Members of my family had the tacos and enchiladas and said they were really tasty. The tacos are on the small side, so 3 is probably best for a more filling option. The casera salad with shrimp that I had was delicious and thoroughly recommended.
