Service was little slow, but was friendly! We enjoyed the patio, but the inside was nice pleasant as well. The food was good, but nothing extraordinary. We did really enjoy the fried ice cream though. The chicken tostada was good.

I have passed by this place on Duval Street for years. Finally tried it. Somehow it seems against the law not to have seafood in Key West. Anyway, this place is classic home made fresh Mexican cuisine at an affordable price. Salsa is very good....More
