Been in the same situation and did the same thing.We now make a point of going at least once each trip(next one is Sunday-fingers crossed).Great grilled pollo and a very underrated ceviche in my IMO.Last year had menus with English for the first time so they are branching out as bit.

Something I should know about this place?
They open in the evening - close at 3am
I wish they opened for lunch!

Well if Rina and Air Tran cooperate I just may see you there! I'll be the other gabacho.

Thanks for saving me a trip. I'm too lazy to walk up there after a day on the beach. Guess I'll wait for the new one.

We ate there a couple of years ago and loved it and plan on going back this next visit.

We have eaten here before - same reason - the other two places were closed. I had never (and have never since) had Huaraches - but these were very good.
