Right on the strip. Can seat outside and people watch plus watch boats and beachgoers. Had the guacamole and husband had the beef nachos. Both were very good. Ice tea was cold and good.

Went to this restaurant 3 years ago & had their ceviche. Made sure we found it again on this visit. It also has a nice view of the beach.

We ordered chicken nachos and a chicken quesadilla for lunch and 2 margaritas. Drinks were horrible, service was okay. They do have wifi. The view was nice. We all had a little stomach ache after wards. Budget friendly!
