“Mexican”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

It was a little on the pricey side. Food was ok. Too expensive for what you get.

“A little overrated..”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

I heard this was the place to eat Mexican food in the Torrance area, so perhaps my expectations were too high. Or maybe I didn't order well. Anyway, the food was OK but nothing special. I chose a combination platter for the variety, but everything tasted the same! Service and ambience good, however.

“Excellent Location and Food”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Happened to visit this place when visiting the Redondo Pier in Torrance. Ideally located next to the beach this place served up excellent whole mexican meal. The waitresses were courteous and going by the people frequenting this place, it is a pretty famous eatery and lives up to its name.
