Useful information


This south-of-the-border gem seems straight out of central casting for a classic surfer snack shack. The original member of the local chain that opened in 2011, it's laid-back, breezy, and set just blocks away from the beach, so you won’t need to brush the sand off your feet to eat here. That is if you can indeed find a perch at the counter, which has limited seating.

Whether in or out, dine at all times on seafood-centric Mexican food, where tacos take center stage with familiar renditions—like crispy fish and shrimp, as well as more unusual selections including grilled octopus and adobo-marinated tuna. Feeling hungrier than usual? Upgrade any taco to a burrito for an extra buck, or stop by mid-afternoon for happy hour and 99-cent treats.
