Interesting take on some Mexican dishes, nice people, food is ok, hard to taste the alcohol in their drinks, nice selection of beer on tap.

We love this place. Stop here every trip up the coast. Gorgeous scenery on the outdoor terrace among the redwoods. We always play ping pong too. Great burgers and basic fare. Not fancy and not overpriced, a ratifying the area.

We ordered a Stromboli and a quesadilla for takeout and were disappointed with both - the Stromboli came with no tomato sauce (not what we ordered) and the quesadilla was quite unappetising. Disappointing given the good reviews here - I certainly wouldn’t recommend the food.

The food was good, but the service was weird. We were a group of 4, my husband ordered the burrito, I ordered the fish and chips, and our friends shared a pizza. My fish and chips arrived first, about 5 minutes later, the pizza arrived,...More

We got the Italian pizza, loaded with lots of peppers, sausage and mozzarella. They have a big screen tv, casual atmosphere, and a mice deck with tiki torches.

Good salads, decent prices and good service. They also have a full bar that gets both locals and tourists. Given the lack of dining options in town and ubiquitous high prices, this is a best bet.
