This place never disappoints with the best ribs in Cabo. We shared a dessert that they made right at the table. They also make great fresh quacamole right at your table. A must stop every time we go to Cabo.

I can't comment on drinks as we didn't have any and the chips and salsa was bland...however our meals and dessert were fantastic. The guac that came with the chimichanga was one of best we had...table also had delicous steak burrito. Great fried ice cream and the pineapple dessert for 2. Yes we would go back.
