This place is good Mexican food served quickly with great friendly staff. Low prices for Hermosa, but it can get busy. The Manager was very charming and entertaining.

Recent visit with my wife. Very nIce meal with good house salsa- well spiced. My wife said margaritas were well made . We had quesadilla and burritos, both which were very nice- seemed like good place for comfort Mexican food.

Huevos rancheros, burritos & seafood enchiladas in a little Mexican cafe overlooking a seaside park just seconds away from the beach on Hermosa. Tiny, quaint place with good flavor!
