All three people in the group enjoyed their meals. The price is affordable. The food exceeded expectations. Really good chips and salsa, enchiladas, burritos, and sangria.

Right on the beach in Iconic Hermosa Beach. Great Mexican food. Very authentic right down to the staff working. Very friendly staff. Pretty extensive menu also. Only has 10 tables so depending when you go it could be busy. The food is worth it though....More

The location is fantastic, all the people who work there are super nice, the food is pretty good. It's a locals go-to kind of place. Carne Asada burrito and the Cadillac Margarita are two highlights. The chips and salsa are great too.
