The queso had no flavor but it that was okay. We had 2 burritos, chimichanga and chicken taco salad. Burritos were amazing and GREAT flavor. Chimichanga was great but came with black beans. Salad had a great she'll but not just what the kiddo wanted.

This is a regular stop for our family, we love the burritos!! There isn't another place on the beach like it, so I'm always telling people to go here.

We found this grill by accident, we went next door to Dunkin Donuts and decided the next day to eat Mexican here. The food was very good and place was very clean. Good specials everyday. Nice and quiet, not very large. Will be visiting again on our next trip.

Went with my family for lunch. Shrimp and fish portions were small and food was VERY bland... rice had no flavor at all. Beef tacos were not too bad.

Order at the counter. Good variety of light Mexican specialties. The chicken enchilados made a good lunch. The dining area is pleasant. Located in a small strip mall, parking is convenient.

This is a great little counter service Mexican spot. They cook it when you order & are friendly and fast. No bells or whistles just really good Mexican food served up quickly. Their chips and Queso, burritos, taco salads and cheese quesadillas for the kids are great. They don't offer a ton of options for drinks but not a deal... More

This place is not easy to see from the highway. I asked and the ladies behind the counter told me they have been here for 6 years. WOW, I would have never guessed it. The food was good and service was friendly and fast. Prices are reasonable.
