    Tacos are huge , don't do tostaco as it isn't easy to eat. The Baka fried fish is the best thing here . Pictured is the Baja fish taco and chicken taco

    Tilapia tacos - not too fishy, just right. Each taco is a decent size, so if you are not too hungry, one should be enough. Skip the Mayan chocolate mousse, very ordinary.

    Great authentic Mexican food! After you order, they serve and bus your table! (They have a four car parking lot so it's best to parallel park on the street.)

    The Chicken Enchiladas with Rice and Beans are delicioso! Both the Tomatillo and Mole sauces are great. The Avocado Tomatillo salsa is awesome, too!

    Great authentic food (so I've been told) and good value. Seafood tacos and chile rellenos rock.

    Eat the relleno enchiladas. They're delicious. Margaritas are from a mix but still tasty.

    Chicken is wonderfully flavored so try anything chicken. Rice and beans are good too.

    I'm convinced Turtle Bay has the best mole sauce on the peninsula. Try it!

    Excellent food, but you won't find real margaritas here. Beer & wine only!
