I drove past this place three times, before a friend noticed I was in Morro Bay and tipped me. This place is amazing. Tortillas to die for. Big portions. Fresh ingredients. Happy staff. Oh, and if you think carrot cake and Mexican food don't mix, try it. The carrot cake will rock your world. You're welcome!

Been driving around for two days looking for a great fish taco. Ordered the red snapper special. It's really not a taco, but a plate full of taco stuff. Incredible. Fresh, flakey, flavorful. Good service and good food. Worth the drive.

Simple place for good fresh tacos in generous portions. A very nice salsa/hot chips self service is available while waiting for your choice. The service is quick, food is good.

Love this place for the food and the outdoor patio that is very dog-friendly. It is almost always busy but the service is fast and the food is fresh and plentiful. The chips are the best, too.

Great deals, with huge portions! Has a very nice salsa/chip bar and decent selection of beers. The service is very quick, and it is easy to over eat here.

A nice find for Mexican food, all sorts of excellent seafood Mexican meals! Huge portions, one taco is enough for most. Nice service and good food, a great combination.

My husband and I were staying at the Sandpiper Inn for 3 weeks until our home closed in escrow. We tried this place and honestly; didn't do a thing for me. The Carne asada has no flavor and is tough. It would help if they marinated their meat. Won't go there again!

Upon arrival hit the house made chips and fresh salsa bar. Then ponder which Taco/ all are huge and shareable. Staff is friendly and welcoming. Save room for homemade carrot cake- one piece is plenty for the whole table.

Everything about this place is great. The food is amazing, my favorite is the fish taco. I live in Los Angeles where we have a choice of every kind of fish taco but nothing measures up to this fish taco. The salsa, they have two and both are so good and the chips are hot. You can serve yourself. The... More
