Cheerful Mexican place.

Restaurant Details

This apricot-walled Mexican seafood place along a strip of taquerias on North Clark has a menu that goes beyond standard tacos and burritos. To start there are mejillones al mojo de ajo y vino (mussels in garlic and wine sauce) and tostadas de pulpo (octopus tostadas). The seven seas soup comes chock-full of shrimp, crab, clams, octopus, fish, calamari, and snails. There's also a variety of shrimp preparations, including delectably spicy shrimp diablo. Whole fish offerings include deep-fried catfish and red snapper, which come with salad, rice, and plenty of lime wedges. Tacos, burritos, and tostadas are served with a variety of fillings: marinated skirt steak, barbecued pork, chorizo, chicken, lengua. Though you can BYO, there's a limit of six beers per table. A pleasant little patio is out back.
