The fish tacos were very good. Great place to stop for a quick lunch while hiking. The service was prompt and there are many tables to sit at if you choose to.

Our family stopped for a late lunch/early supper here - lineup was okay - lots more came after us so we timed that well (got there around 4 PM). Girls ordered the gringas - they seemed awfully small for the price. My wife and I...More
