Great spot in Ship Bottom for mexican. The fish taco is yummy but huge, more of a burrito. Kids love to come here. It's small but we always seem to hit it at the right time. Very casual and on our summer rotation.

I went there a bit ago with some buddies to get some burritos and ended having to wait 50 minutes just for 3 meals to go. Food wasnt anything to write home about either.
