I was able to cross the parking lot and enjoy dinner at this great restaurant. The waiter was attentive but not overbearing. Saw that i was looking at the seafood page so recommended a dish and I must agree, it was delicious!

This is a classic Mexican restaurant with a variety of items on the menu and several seafood options in addition to traditional items. Good for large groups and families.
