Had another great dinner Friday night. The service was excellent, the ambiance was fun, and the food was fresh, flavored well, and came out nice and hot. We will definitely continue to stop here on the way to the beach!

Food is americas version of Mexican. The meals are commercial but prepared well. The prices are reasonable. One very large dining room that can be loud sometimes.

They don't do reservations. This place is too busy all the time. Unless you talk to a manager and go before or after a select time.
