Great food. I love their combination plate. Their shrimp cocktail is terrific. On the weekends they have live Mexican music.

Had an enjoyable dinner at this restaurant. Staff was very friendly which hasn't been the case in many El Centro establishments. Food was very tasty. We will return during our temporary stay in this town.

We tried the shrimp, albacore coconut dish - most amazing flavors! This dish is a must-try if you like seafood. Easy access, nice service, bathroom could use a little work, but otherwise nice stop.
