We don't like getting in the car when we vacation at the beach, but this one is worth the trip. Their fish tacos are especially good, and love the help-yourself salsa/condiment cart in the middle of the restaurant. The margaritas were unexpectedly tasty and the...More

Went in for lunch with my wife. Met the owner at the ordering counter, Achilles. He's Mexican and Greek. When we explained it was our first time there, he very helpfully took us on a tour of his menu. Make sure you watch the TV...More

Aquiles, the owner is the heart and soul of this local favorite! Open all year round ( except for a few weeks in the winter and closed on Sunday's in the winter months). Made to order tacos, burritos, salads and more. His margaritas are legendary!...More

The guy behind the counter, who I'm assuming was the owner, was extremely friendly and informative. The food was OK. I was a little disappointed by the small size of the burrito for the price and most of the taste was the cabbage inside.

Not your cheese based Mexican Joint with bucket sized margaritas. This is the real deal, family friendly! The sauce bar is the best. Eat here people!

We really liked the fish tacos and the shrimp tacos. We ordered the grilled rather than battered and it was tasty. Tortilla is corn and not great. Lots of choices on salsa bar. Hole in the wall place that we will go back to.
