Best tacos in town. The al pastor is worth the line. Meet new friends with a margarita while waiting for your table. You won’t regret it. The spicy habanero salsa with pineapple and mango is a must try on your tacos.

Great beach club with good service and reasonable prices sitting beachside with your private palapa! This place is also known as Green Chairs. Try the Tex Mex bowl or Panko breaded chicken strips. Also the cucumber margarita with Jalapeño is wonderful.
