This is an excellent addition to the food scene in Newport! New decor, paint, and a modern atmosphere promised an entirely different dining experience from the building's prior incarnation and they delivered! Fresh, fast, healthy food served by a great staff is always worth five stars in my book.

Who knew that Newport, NC would have one of the BEST Mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at. And that is saying something. The service was outstanding and the price is right. Nice size draft beers (can you say 25oz mugs). Seafood dip (with crab). Street tacos and a Mexican hotdog (yummy). Go get you some of that!!!
