    Amazing, amazing tacos and an awesome beer selection. I recommend getting 2-3 tacos, especially the Ken-ee and the Spicy Tuna.

    Sure...the tacos are good. But the burgers are awesome. Move past the tacos...try the burgers. Also be sure to hit their $3 daily beer specials. They pour some quality stuff on the cheap!

    I've tried a lot of the tacos on the menu. Recommendations: curry (either tofu or chicken), Thai (chicken), crispy shrimp

    Truffle fries. Extra crispy! Interesting tacos. Good beers. Good people. Open to the beach. What else do you need.

    Cajun Shrimp on the Convivial Bites (starters/appetizer) is silly good and limited on the menu. Get it when available.

    Has potential but Owner's ego gets in the way. He does not allow you to add bacon or modify any of his menu items. He won't even let you order a side of bacon.

    Incredible tacos. Not your average run of the mill tacos either. And a great beer selection. Maybe the most underrated place in hermosa.

    The slider burgers and fries are delicious! But hot wings are burnt! Waited for a replacement and took like 20 minutes.
