Excellent food! Try the 8 layer dip; it is sheer perfection! Avacado tacos were awesome, fajitas were yummy and plentiful, chimichangas were great. Awesome, thick tortilla chips with spicy hot sauce! Fed 4 people with appetizer and soft drinks for $65.00. Best meal we had on our trip to LA! Some of the best Mexican food I have had in years!!! Ocean view is beautiful! Try it--you won't be disappointed!!! Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!

I think it was like $5.00, and it was all you can eat. Best deal out there. Be sure to go early and grab a table. They fill up quick, and the buffet line goes till late. This is the best deal by far in the area, and the food is really good. It's not all just about quantity here; quality is A+. Check it out.

If you love good Mexican food, and plenty of it, this place is a big no-brainer. Go about 5:30PM on Tuesday. Stake out a place in the patio. Order something cold from one of the friendly servers. Then let the gluttony begin. It is $5 for all you can eat. Yum !

This place was so crowded with children and families, there was barely space to pull ones chair out. Every time the server came past he knocked our arms! Food is good though, especially the soup which is one of my favorites. The Santa Ana location of this restaurant is so much nicer.
