Good food. Glad we found this treasure last week. Kids loved it. Spanish rice and yellow rice was good, gucamole and chips very good. The chips have a very good spice mixture. Thursday nights after 5 pm $1 tacos. Family of five, three kids under ten, all at for $20! You have to like that on vacation.

I studied in a near by flight school for a year, and during breaks i used to love to eat here. A small family owned business, the staff were friendly and remember faces, which is always nice. Food is excellent and at a very good price. Much better than taco bell and with so much more variety with tex mex and cuban influence. Nice semi outdoor seating (open air under a roof) with nice surf themed decor.

as a long time customer, and previous employee ( 9 months ) I got to see both sides of this awesome little restaurant. the food is good and the sauces are amazing. my word the sauces. the cilantro sour cream, chipolte dressing, and especially the queso sauce. which is literally good on everything. my personal favorite, and ultimate flavor combination is the radical rice plate with beef , spanish rice, black beans and of course ... extra dressing lol its incredible. cant wait to eat another one. behind the scenes is amazing as well, when i had the privilege to work there, these are some of those genuine , warm hearted and respectful people you could ever hope to meet let alone work with. all the food is made from scratch. no plastic sauces here. everything is fresh fresh fresh and you can taste the difference. the atmosphere is fun and relaxed with surfing videos playing and pleasant reggae music playing that really sets up the Caribbean setting. considering all the food costs about half of what it would in any other place, then consider everything is fresh made from scratch, one would be crazy to over look this place ,its truly the gem of new smyrna beach. if you enjoy hand made fresh food for an extremely reasonable price this is your place. and bring your appetite because the portion sizes are ridiculous lol, you might have to ask for a to go box.

If you're looking for atmosphere and great food, this is the place for you! The owners are amazing- so friendly and welcoming, they make you want to come back again and again. Try the chips and queso before your meal- best chips in town! Taco Thursdays will give you dollar tacos which are delicious. Personally, the chimichanga is my favorite, but my mom LOVES the "shack-a-ladas"! The pork is delicious, but really, all the meats are. You can't go wrong here and you support great people! Try it out!

The atmosphere is very casual and the food is great. You order at the window and pay and they bring it to you. This is a place with outside covered seating and not too many places for the level of business they do. Paper plates and plastic ware is what they have and plastic cups. The natchos were great and the tortilla soup was also very good. The Sangria was good but the cups could have been bigger. They had good ratings and with good reason. Not fancy but good. They do a brisk take out business.
