Reviewed 11 November 2015

This place recently converted to a Mexican cafe, though the food is the most pathetic excuse for Mexican food I've ever had, with the possible exception of when I ate some in Norway years ago. The menu is weak, the food is atrocious (the taco salad was a bed of burnt chips with cheap ground beef, lettuce tomatoes, and shredded cheese on top - nothing else, no sour cream, guacamole, peppers, or anything else). The venue itself is quite dirty, they do not turn the lights on for some reason (we ate in the dark!), and the owner and a relative were there with several young kids who were screaming throughout the meal in the small dining room. To placate the kids, we had the pleasure of watching Disney movies at full volume 10 feet from our table. At least we got some chips and salsa 10 minutes after our food order came, though :)

This small, clean cafe has been open about 3 months. My hairdresser recommended the Best Burger and Asian Chicken Salad. I chose a $9 Italian BLT w/fries. Thick sliced bacon, lettuce and tomato on a soft toasted 10" (but slim) hoagie. I ask for the order to-go since the cafe was really warm. Overhead fans were going but the A/C was not up to par for Texas hot weather. With only 1 block back to the beach I enjoyed my seaside lunch.

A good burger and sandwich shop, with a few entrees on the menu, and a large breakfast menu I didn't get to try, but will later.
The burger was good. Usual ingredients, well made. Fries were good. Usual fountain drinks.
Ordered at the counter, so not full-service.
Atmosphere was fresh, new, very clean.
A good venue for locals in the neighborhood.
