“new, fresh tasty food”
Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

on our first trip to gulf shores we were getting tired of fried seafood. we drove around arguing about where to go for dinner. we saw this brightly lit colorful Mexican restaurant in a newer strip mall about two miles north of the beach. the place was packed, while waiting for a table people leaving commented on how good it was. portions are large, fresh and very well seasoned, the owner stopped by several times and said they had been open only three days. the fajita plates for two were enough for dinner and a next day lunch. be forewarned sangrias are huge and freshly made but two cost the same as the meal.
