“Beach Trip”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

I was looking forward to mexican food yet found our meal to be just average. The skinny margaritas were good, but the enchilada was rubbery. Decent crunchy taco but the queso we started with had a layer of hardened cheese on top like it had been sitting there for a few hours. I wasn't impressed but it wasn't the worst i've ever had either. middle of the road.

“A must stop on Cinco de mayo”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

Was in Destin on Cinco de Mayo so a Mexican restaurant was a must! Place was crowded but not unexpected due to everyone else wanting to celebrate also. We sat in grassy area across street while we waited which was great for the little ones. We sat outside in courtyard and it was breezy and perfect. Margaritas were great, Sangria tart and not that good. We ordered everything from salads, enchiladas, quesadillas to French fries and all were good. Chips were hot and Queso and hot sauce were really good.

“Average Cheesy Mexican Food”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

It was fine but nothing special. Typical mexican fare. Limited hours at lunch and closes early in the evening.

“Vacation Lunch”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We had lunch here on a rainy day during our beach vacation. The food was delicious. The waitress was extremely attentive keeping our drinks, chips, and salsa well filled. I had the lunch special of the sampler trio. The avocado cakes and wonton brisket tacos were delicious, and the goat cheese and bean quesadillas were just ok until I added some salsa - yum! The burger (with ground beef, chorizo, and brisket) was reportedly tasty as were the enchiladas.

I'd go there again in a heartbeat for a solid meal at a good price delivered with excellent service.

“Service with a smile”
Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We went with a group of 9. Sat outside but then it started to rain. The servers moved us inside and made it easy. The food was average with no wow factors. Prices were a little high but it was a nice atmosphere. Near a group of beach stores and live music outside for a nice family evening.
