Live music, buckets of food, great margaritas, all in a funky historic building. Nothing but fun. Get the bucket size you like with shrimp, crab, carnitas, chicken, corn cobs and more. Add the toppings bar and it's a good time. Reasonable prices large servings.

We had a group of 30 visit recently and the restaurant did a good job of getting us seated and served in a timely manner (we had called ahead for a reservation). The margaritas were yummy and the meal was delicious.

What a great spot. Terrific service and the food was excellent. Had their gnarly Nachos and they were great. Others in our group had fish tacos and thought they were excellent. Really a great experience.

Visited this establishment with a large group of high school students. The staff was helpful, courteous and very friendly. The food was plentiful, reasonably priced for the area and most importantly, very tasty. If every back to San Diego we would definitely visit them again.
