Breakfast Special Bacon and Eggs Plate


Chicken Monterry Plate

Some of the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. Everything is wonderful. I've had fajita/street tacos, fish tacos, and quesadillas and I have been extremely satisfied every time. The chips and salsa are some of my favorites as well.  These fish tacos compete and are maybe even better than my favorite places on the island. They give you beans and rice as well and they are also fantastic.  I seem to forgot about this place when we come down, but I'll have to start to put it in the rotation. Very good!
