Locally owned Mexican casual restaurant. Similar in concept to Chipotle but tastier. The chilaca chicken is very good as are the grilled vegetables. And they have real Mexican Coca Cola!!

I had the beef bowl with cilantro/lime rice and black beans. Flavorful and plentiful. The place is clean, quick and close to UTMB and the beach.
