This is beyond what you would expect from a typical Mexican restaurant; we took notice of the surf side flavors and inventive twists on traditional.  Lunch specials manage to keep things interesting with items like their Taco & Avocado Empanada Plate.  Added to a drink, it still rings up under $9.  Particularly delicious is the Inside Out Chicken Tinga Tamale ($8.99), decoded as pulled chicken on a grilled corn cake bed served with a side of black beans—a pleasant option in addition to pinto.
