Small and locally owned, this is one of my favorites. The food is authentic and delicious. They have lots of Tequila to chose from, the service is great. Dress casual, sit inside or out and enjoy a relaxing evening in Port A!

If you love mexican food-go here!! Try whatever is the special. Always good. I love the Crab Enchiladas and guacamole. My daughter order Crab Quesadillas and says they are the best thing she ever ate. (they are not on the menu but they will make them for you) Also, the peach margaritas are excellent. My favorite restaurant on the island!!!

Hands down the best mexican food in Port Aransas! But be prepared, the menu is pricier than most local mexican places and if you order from the bar, the check can be quite pricey! This establishment does not accept credit cards! They have an onsite ATM for customer convenience. Live music on weekends in the summertime. Love it!

Was suggested by friends as the best Mexican seafood around. Didn't disappoint. It was busy--30 minute wait--but the staff was pleasant and the bartender accommodating. Wife had the special--snapper with peach chipotle sauce and they were kind enough to let me try one enchilada each of the crab, crawfish, and shrimp variety. Snapper was excellent. Enchiladas were very good--I would rate shrimp>crab>crawfish, but they were all tasty. Good service, try the ceviche.
