    The greatest hole in the wall ever. The blacken calamari burger is the BEST, you have to try it. Lobster tacos are great as well. Everything is good here along with a nice cold beer.

    Had multiple tacos. Mushroom was my least favorite (mushrooms were not very flavorful). Shrimp, fish, carnitas and chicken were really amazing. Blackened calamari truly outstanding!

    Ordered the beef and blackened chicken tacos... Bland and very very small! Sea bass quesadilla was good, but would not come back.

    An eclectic locals place. Wife got the mahi mahi nachos. I had a lobster taco and a mahi mahi one. The food was edible but not good enough for a out of the way follow up visit.  Limited parking.

    Calamari burger is textured on the outside and juicy on the inside; it's one of those tastes you wish lasts forever!

    The 30 mile drive on a holiday weekend is so worth all of the tacos. Swordfish, blackened salmon, blackened sea bass, mahi tacos. Going back for carne asada tacos in a quick second here :D

    Blackened fish tacos with everything on 'em & medium salsa. I swear they put uppers in their guacamole. Get an ice cold corona and sit in the sun along the rail.

    Right near shuttle stop 2 or 3. If you aren't using the free laguna shuttle you are missing out. Park out where its free and easy and enjoy the open air ride in. Use the app for real time info!
