Spanish Restaurant

“Enjoy the complimentary fresh made warm tortillas served with honey butter and a selection of salsa to start your meal off right. Follow it up with one of their speciality margaritas with a kick (jalapeño, serrano chili or chipotle)! Located on Pier Ave in Hermosa. We usually try to park in the paid parking lot behind Scotty's. ”
