Nice, friendly place with great food! Cannot be best for Mexican in Hermosa Beach. I had the enchilada ranchera and it was great. The margaritas are also wonderful!

Super cute restaurant only steps from the beach and pier... but just far enough away. Cozy & inexpensive, this place has awesome food and friendly service. Definitely worth the stop! Try the Bloody Mary :-)

Been going here for years. Went today and had the chicken burrito. Big, delicious and reasonably priced. Patio with views of the beach. Great to walk the boardwalk after your meal.

Had a meal here and whilst it cannot be described as fine dinning it is a fantastic place to eat authentic Mexican food. Soft tacos were so tasty, fast service which was warm and helpful. Would definitely recommend a visit.
