We had calamari appetizer, and I had the blackened fish tacos. Both were very good! They don't give you any dinky tacos either. It was 2 large homemade tortillas with 2 large pieces of Basa fish in both. The fish was not fishy tasting at all--which I always prefer.

The restaurant was very clean and nicely decorated. One other nice tidbit-the price was great ($10 for the tacos)!

This was our first time here even though we are locals. Ordered migas and pancakes. The migas was just eggs and tortilla strips. Very dry, very bland. Most other places add onions, green pepper and jalapenos and provide salsa for the top. The pancakes tasted like they were made with corn, very gritty. Did not taste like a pancake at all. It was all crumbly and gritty. Overall, we like flavorful, spicy food and this was not it. Service is very slow also. First and last time here, too many better places to eat in this area!

If you are looking for fancy, stay away. The food is good, They specialize in very large shrimp which can be seen as you walk in. You may have to sit at a picnic table with other people, but you can have a good time meeting new friends.
