Excellent shrimp or sea bass tacos. Their cauliflower dish was fabulous and is even great on a taco. Ingredients fresh, service very good. Small but you can sit inside or out and enjoy a nice cold beer!

Excellent menu and always has several specials. Cheeseburger with cheese inside the meat, then wrapped around the outside of the burger with a crispy cheese finish. Great selection of beers and fish tacos are always fantastic.

This is a tiny place with a couple of outdoor tables, four indoor tables, and a bar for eating and drinking. It is worth the wait to eat excellent fish tacos.
