About The Author


  1. This is a good local restaurant. A little high priced for some locals but has good food. If it was a little more gourmet they could play more to a tourist market.

  2. This is a good tip especially since our condo is around the corner from this restaurant. It looks like a nice spacious casual Mexican place. We remember when it was the other taco restaurant. Thanks for letting us know about the new owners.

  3. We checked out this new restaurant. It was good Mexican. I hope they can survive because it is a large space to fill and there were only about 10 people there.
