Nothing fancy. You can be dressed in attire at this beach close Mexican restaurant. Food is good, generous and restaurant has been family owned and run for 50 years. All their locations are great. Good service as well.

Great Mexican place. Guacamole is very fresh and good. My husband had the steak quesadillas and I had a cheese tamale with grilled veggies and beans. Great food. Easy access to the place. Great service. Highly recommend!
