Service was good. The food was plentiful, but average. The frozen Margaritas were good and so were the Churros we had for dessert. Overall our dinner was just... More

The food is good and there a lot of food for the price. The best mango margarita that I have had in Myrtle Beach, SC.

As a college student, I'm in love with patio. It's right near the college and offers big portions, good quality food and affordable. I love their happy hour. The servers are always nice and it's always a good time there.

Okay, so I am looking at others photos and ours looked nothing like it. Maybe it's because we got take out but ours was just a big mess of mush.... We couldn't even tell who's was who's. The rice and beans were good but the main meals were really bad.
