“This place really hits the spot!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Perfect place to grab lunch after a morning swimming at the beach. Chips and guacamole are excellent. No tables inside (only bar seating) and limited seating outside but wasn't too crowded. We would definitely go back and it's great that AMI has a good quality taco place!

“Give little Dive”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

It is a simple Mexican place with simple items - tacos, burritos, quesadilla. You go down the line and chose what you want on it. The food was fresh, the atmosphere was clean, and the people were nice. A great place to go for lunch.

“Great change”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We tried this place by accident as we couldn't get a table in a nearby beachfront restaurant. We were all glad that the other restaurant was full. The food here is fresh and extremely tasty - due to the nature of Mexican food we could all order something that suited the level of spice we liked etc and all loved our impromptu meal sat at the bar type area. Kids loved the natural sugar drinks .
Staff were all great as we were a little unsure what to order but they helped despite being very busy and we had a delicious meal. Would advise it as a real good quality alternative to the expensive beachfront restaurants or the monotony of burgers type fare.

“Didn't get what we ordered but still great food!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were a party of 10 wanting Mexican food. Thought we would give this place a try. So two of us went to check it out and found it would be better to order it take out as there are only about 7 seats in the restaurant and they are bar stools placed at a "bar" facing the wall- little awkward. There are a few tables outside on the front deck with seating if you are a party of two- seating would be fine for that number.
So we decided to order it take out. We arrived at 6 and asked for our order to be ready for pick up at 8 pm. We preordered and prepaid for our meal. When we placed the order, we asked that each meal be labeled with each persons name on it for ease of passing out the food at our house.
If you are familiar with Chiptole, this is very similar.
Pick your desired "shell" ( burrito, bowl , taco, quesadilla etc), choose your desired toppings.
After we picked up everything , when we got home we realized we had two burritos missing. At that point , not wanting to go back again, we just shared what we had.
What we had was absolutely delicious!!! It was so fresh!!! I loved my " plate" of food- it was actually in a bowl but they call it a plate. It was rice, chicken, black beans, pico de gallo , guacamole , cheese, onions, cilantro. Wonderful!! Everyone else loved their meals too!!
Make sure to order some chips and pico de gallo and guacamole. The chips are made fresh!!!
I would suggest not ordering ahead or over the phone - personally stand there and watch them make each order to make sure it's correct. We made do- even though we were missing a few things!!
