I’ve been here a couple of times and it is average at best. The food and service are OK while the prices are a little high. Would recommend going further into the Myrtle Beach area for Mexican.

Excellent place for large families. Great food and Service visit every year on vacation in Pawleys Island. Every entrée is consistently good.
