This dining oasis flanked by tourist traps on Ocean Drive likely isn’t your first choice when deciding where to go for Mexican but it deserves to move up on the list. Make it past the busy sidewalk and find a seat toward the back of the patio restaurant, where the lights and beach breeze (and stiff margaritas) will trick you into thinking you’re actually somewhere in Acapulco instead of South Beach. In keeping with the seaside vibe is the variety of seafood options on the menu, like fish burritos and shrimp tacos. Pair these with one of their hand-made margaritas and churros for dessert and you’ve got yourself a proper Mexican feast.
