several rooms with dining, a live music - band area and bar with tall
tables and raised bar-chair style seating, it's amazing to see just how
popular this restaurant and entertainment venue is. Serving
steaming hot Mexican dishes, chips and salsa, sandwiches and great beer
and cocktails, people gravitate to this location on Pacific Coast
Highway in Surfside near the Anaheim Bay and bridge. With a location a
block from the beach and popular windsurfing / surfing location in
Sunset Beach, the restaurant is an obvious choice for dining and

surroundings. They enjoy good food, good people and good music at many
of the diners and bars and good vibes.
