Relaxed, outdoor atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and always remembers us. The food is great and they don't hold back on the meat. I love the Sunset Quesadilla!

Crazy busy with locals - tasty Mexican food and inexpensive prices. Worth the wait in line and you can get a table once you have ordered. Don't be afraid of the lines!

Stumbled upon this place and it's fairly popular with the locals. Cheap prices, decent portion size for the money. Maybe a little better than a Tijuana Flats? Not many mexican places in the area and this fit our need for a Mexican fix but it's not the best we've ever had...a solid 4 star rating, but shy of a 5.

So casual and yet the food is amazingly delicious. I have never been disappointed with anything I have ordered. The plantains are the best! But everything is great.

I have driven by this place a hundred times and thought "I don't know about that place". Well I finally stopped in and am glad I did! My daughter had the Gnarly Nachos and I had Emmy's empanadas. Very good and fresh. Despite being right next to a main road, the ambiance isn't bad with the outside seating. I will... More

The absolute best tacos for miles, I hate waiting in line, and there usually is one, but I don't care.. I've parked a street away to stand in line in 90 degree weather for their blackened fish tacos. The people that work there are awesome and always have a good attitude, even when the clearly wealthy interlopers forget to tip.... More

This is a local favorite and does not disappoint. The food is fabulous with great people working there. It is outside dining with really neat décor. Try the taco shack specials. So delicious. Will be going back on my next visit. Great value and scenery!
