Restaurant details
Reviewed March 26, 2013

we have a beach house in long beach so know all the places well - this is a town that makes it's money during the summer 3 months and the guy who owns this place owns one other on the coast and has a hard time keeping up with both in the summer and he closes the longbeach one in the winter

this place has the best seafood stew that makes up their seafood enchalada's , chimmi's etc

and they have what my wife thinks is the best margarita's she's had

Our waitress did not seem to happy to be there. We have been here many times but it seems like the food has just has no real taste anymore! We had the chimichangas and they were dry and no flavor to them. There was not much rice or beans with the meal and salsa was blan. Not sure what is going on with the food lately but we have had really good meals in the past here!

Just your average Mexican restaurant. Food is certainly acceptable. Nothing really bad or really good to say about the place. Go if you're craving Mexican food and you're on the Peninsula. Otherwise, choose something else.

Authentic Mexican restaurant located on the edge of Long Beach. Happy hour margaritas and tacos made for one fine dining experience. Excellent service.

We were there early and after the food was served, we had to chase her down to get drink refills. I had a chilli relleno and a sope and my wife had chimichangas. The relleno was good but the sope was tasteless and my wife said her chimmi's were terrible. I hate to run down a local Resteraunt but this was very expensive for the value received and service was poor considering how empty the place was.
