“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this jewel punches well above its weight class. Its not a large restaurant, but the decor is quite nice w/o being fancy and the food is top notch. It didn't hurt that our server was the owner either. Very attentive.

“The owners attention to his guests was awesome!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

We came in around 8 on a Friday evening and were greeted by a hostess immediately. When we asked her a few questions about the bar and kitchen menu Steve an owner came out to answer and make suggestions. My wife ordered shrimp tacos and was warned they were SPICY! We asked if they could be made less hot and he said yes and took the order. When the food came out her tacos were almost too spicy for her to eat. She likes hot food, just not over the top. These were over the top. When Steve came by to get us another beer, he noticed my wife was only eating the shrimp. They were great, the the dressing, lettuce and taco was where most of the heat was located. He admitted the kitchen may not have backed of the heat enough, and offered to bring a new dish. We thanked him but declined since the shrimp was really what attracted her to the dish. Steve was apologetic, and comped our beer.
I gave the food a 3 because my carnitas dish was only acceptable. The salsa had some of the best flavor we've had in a while.

“Cocktails, food, service - a five star find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

Creative recipes, freshest ingredients result in some of the best cocktails our group has ever enjoyed. Chips crispy and light, Ceviche fresh and flavorful, nothing short of delicious. Service excellent but laid back and incredibly inviting. Not enough places like this around. Don't miss it when in the outer banks!

“Authentic Mexican food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We had a great dinner during the off season. The red wine sangria is delicious as well as the specialty mojitos. My husband enjoyed the mango habanero mojito very much-just a little kick to it! I am from Arizona and was very pleased to find the pork enchiladas were served with a homemade green Chile sauce. Best Mexican food I have had on the east coast!! We will definitely be back!
