The food was ok. We went for Happy Hour and the margaritas were awesome! The place is kind of small and they are very particular about sharing meals (it's noted all over the menu). The grilled chicken quesadilla was good!

Great house Margarita. Their fish tacos were the best on the island, maybe the best in Georgia! Steak tacos were excellent as well. Small space but worth the wait. Can't wait to go back!

Large menu with all the typical selections. Food was authentic and reasonably priced. Sat outside on the porch/patio. Inside is air conditioned but smaller.
