We so enjoy this place - great service and fresh food. The fish tacos are the best I've had in NC. Very SoCAL - such a refreshing place to have terrific tacos, fajitas...this is NOT your typical american order by number mexican rest, - this is true Cali style in the heart of Wrightsville Beach!

After the flotilla parade, we wandered down to the little square of Wrightsville beach and heard the locals saying this was a great place to eat. So we tried it. They were right on the money. We had pineapple bacon enchiladas, fish tacos, fajitas. Everything tastes great and their Salsa was some of the best I've ever tried.

Love this place. Our beach vacations are not complete without a few trips to this establishment. Tip - come early otherwise you will have a long wait. The food is excellent throughout the menu.

Crowded, noisy, dirty, a long wait and lots of "tipsy" clientele... yes, but the food is a nice surprise after all that. Just a slightly different twist on classics and even the kids ate everything on their plates. On a whim, I ordered the Tacos on a Beach Towel that were not exactly subtle, but perfect, fresh and filling comfort... More

The food was awesome and fresh. We had a large group so it was very cramped though. If you have a lot of people with you, plan on splitting up or it will be tight. Excellent food though especially the wraps!

If Jimmy Buffet were from here, this is what he'd run. Very laid back, friendly, local. The food was excellent - terrific fish tacos, salsa & chips. Maybe it's crazier in the summer, but it hit the spot for me as a solo traveler in October.

We've enjoyed dining here before on trips to Wrightsville Beach and it still impresses as the best place to go for a fun night out with a great atmosphere, excellent service, good bar and of course lots of freshly prepared food. I enjoyed Shrimp Enchiladas with all the trimmings. It was a generous serving, tasty with herbs, plenty of guacamole... More

Enjoy the good food and atmosphere. Fun place to go year round. In the summertime I suggest reservations or be prepared to wait. Seating is limited, but it is a fun place to meet friends for a beverage, great salsa, and food.

This is our "go-to" restaurant, whether it is for a lunch with a friend visiting, or dinner with more folks and family. I feel totally comfortable here as a single guest, as well. It may be crowded, which it always seems to be in the summer, so don't leave! Head for the bar while you wait, and be entertained simply... More
