Freshly cooked, great quality Mexican lunch especially the carne fries and fried fish tacos. Good spot for a family lunch after a boat trip.

“Delicious and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

The Mahi tacos are to die for. The carne asada fries are good for sharing. Can feed the family for about $20 and its delicious.

We appreciate that you have taken the time to post a review. Our fish tacos are very popular as most of our customers have never had Authentic Cabo Pescados before. We're happy to serve em up!

“First of all...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

How cool is the alley? The umbrellas are awesome with the benches. I hate to see people complain about 'no seating' it is a takeout joint and a lot of the other eateries in chincoteague have minimal seating. It's part of what makes the island so cool. Just ate here august 8th. It was good! The menu is nothing fancy just your usual tacos, burritos and quesadillas. This little truck really adds something new to the island and is worth it if you're looking for a good lunch or even a snack! Salsa was good! The only thing I wasn't huge on was the guacamole - it was very fresh, but I personally just think there was too much lime. We will definitely be back next year. We're wishing this little business luck :-)

Thanks for posting a review, we are changing our Guacamole Recipe in response to your and others reviews. The hard part is to keep ourselves on recipe and stop going Rogue!

“Island Mexican Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

It is nice to see Mexican food being served on the island. I enjoyed fish tacos in early August- good food- wanted a bit more flavor in the fish. Guacamole average. However, for an outside trailer situation- not bad at all! May try it again.

“Great food. Great location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2014

My boyfriends parents own a house on the island and I love it here. We vacationed there last week and it was very overcast and yucky the last two days so we decided to go shopping in town. That's when we found this place and I am so glad we did. This place was the icing on top of the cake. We loved it. The carne asada fries were to die for. I had a quesadilla. It was a little spicy because it has jalapenos on it but that is my fault for not requesting it without them. We have specific places that we always have to go to when we are here and this place has now made the list. The place is so cute and it is litterally up an alley. I think that is my favorite part about this place. Take your food across the street and sit under the pavilion by the water to eat.
