Walked from resort, did some shopping and walked over the highway. Good tacos and cold beer served with care. Staff was friendly and welcoming. There was a large group of local coworkers meeting for a work celebration of some kind and laughing and enjoying themselves

There's no bar, that I know. I didn't drink there either, but there might have been beer in the cooler with the other drinks. There was another table of people eating, and they were definitely drinking beer, but I don't... More
