Consistently excellent based on quality, preparation and variety of options. Great food, great wine and beer selections. Family friendly but still fun for adults. And they have plenty of parking! Is this really in Laguna Beach? Yes!

This neighborhood restaurant is always packed with locals. Food is good and simple. No frills here but very tasty Mexican food!

This is not typical lard laden Mexican fare.
It seems to be all about lively flavors & high quality fresh ingredients. No heavy, greasy sauces. No canned, mushy, greasy refried style of beans.The organic beans are slow cooked & seasoned with no added lard or oils. They have a little salsa bar where you dish out your favorite salsas for yourself. Their chicken tortilla soup is the best I've had anywhere. All is good!

Check their website for their impressive sustainable practices philosophy.

There is counter service for placing your order. Sometimes it's a long wait in line to order when they are busy. Your food is then delivered to your table.

They have indoor & outdoor tables. There is a peak ocean view from the outside seating. Of course it's beyond the shopping center parking lot. For a better outdoor ambiance - get your food to go & have a picnic on the beach.

All of the staff I've encountered on my many visits are super friendly, helpful & seem to enjoy their jobs. :)

FYI: This is about the larger location in South Laguna, not the Mermaid Street location. After reading reviews for both & it seems many reviewers are commenting about the wrong location, plus pictures of the wrong location also.

As a big mexican food fan, I tried many different places during my stay in California and I this has to be one of my favorite ones!
I got some fish and chicken tacos with a margarita and everything tasted fresh and delicious!
Good location too with lots of parking spaces, for a quick stop before enjoying an afternoon on the beach.

The most boring mexican food I've ever tasted. I ordered the tacquito platter and although the guac and queso fresco was fresh, the beans were right out of the can and the rice was blah. The tacquito's were bland and lacked filling. For mexican food in california, it had no flavor and no spice. Disappointing.
