Low price casual dining. Charming local atmosphere near the convention center. Red Snapper was delicious & a bargain. Seafood salad yummy for dieters no dressing required. Owner Felipe is a stitch. A bargain priced meal.

Definite Carribean flavor next to the convention center; great for quick lunch. The enchilada mole was excellent and VERY cheap compared to other places. Felipe is wonderful.
