Been coming here for 20 years it is sad not to see them here anymore. Their last day was August 12th. I just missed them. Ben wherever you are Jose and Maria wish you the best. Thanks for those delicious meals.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
