My granddaughter and I shared a bucket. Really could have eaten it by myself. The $32 felt a little steep but it was good.

we came here on a suggestion from my friend's husband. The food and service was excellent! What I liked about this place was the large seating area (both inside & outside seating available) AND the serve yourself chips and salsa bar!

As ex San Diegans who often dined here over the years we still find it a pleasure returning for a great bucket meal and drinks.

This is a fun place to go if you like Baja style Mexican food with things like lobster enchiladas and it's a nice break from traditional Sonoran style. Parking is at a premium but there are parking structures nearby.

Ordered AHI Tuna for starters. Delicious! Then blackened fish tacos. Again outstanding. Fun atmosphere. If you don't like a lot of noise, this isn't the place for you. It is an open air kinda place which is great for people watching. Glad I stopped in.
