Another unique choice is their oyster burger, which is made of a deep fried, crispy oyster covered in garlic, aioli sauce, and topped with grilled eggplant, grilled bell peppers and shitake mushrooms.
They also offer a grilled chicken burger with rosemary, aioli sauce, fresh avocado and jack cheese, as well as camerones Diablo – a spicy shrimp dish, plus fish tacos and vegetarian dishes, as well.
