Good food not great. Busy restaurant. Strong margaritas. Reasonably priced. Was there over the 4th of July a particularly crazy time to visit Avalon.

We sat down at a two top table with plenty of room on the bench for two and we were told they couldn't accommodate three people. The waitress was nasty, didn't even say enjoy our inside seating. Sad

Pass on this if you are craving Mexican food. Food was bland with no spice at all. I had the shredded beef tacos.

Serve was poor because we got a table right away and sat while people around us were getting served. Food was bland for machaca, huevos ranchero, eggs and potatoes. Not one of us were happy.

Great food close to hotels and Crescent Avenue. They made my Pork Chili Verde Tostada Supreme to order just like I like it.
