Whenever I have friends in from out of town, 'Canes is the place I take 'em. We eat on the rooftop, and get to watch the ocean. And, you'll be able to eat a lot cheaper than the Marine Room or Beach House.

The fajitas are the best I've ever had, anywhere. Which is odd, since it's not like 'Canes is a Mexican restaurant. It's just this beach cantina. For a while though, I'd get juked because they'd stop serving food at 8:30 p.m. and I'm showing up for some live music, and I roll in around 9:00 p.m.

Then, when I finally got it thru my head that I need to get there by 8:00 if I wanted to eat, I'm chilling out with my friends enjoying the fajitas, and Chris Robinson (Black Crowes), starts singing. For some reason, he decided to go on at around 9:30 or some early time like that. It was probably the only time I didn't finish my grub.

Every time I get a Coke there, it tastes funny. A few times it was flat. A few other times, it tasted like pencil led. Then I end up getting pitchers of Margaritas, and those are great. Maybe that's their plan.

Awesome desserts, too. They have this huge Oreo cake thing that I like. I wish their mudd pie type of dessert had mocha ice cream, but hey...after the fajitas, I'm usually only taking a few bites of this thing anyway.

But if you have guests from out of town, this is the place to go. You can see live music and eat on the beach, maybe take them to the roller coaster... all for a good price.

All I can say is "SUPER" about this place. First time we had been there and we will be back. With any restaurant there are two things that are most important, one being the food and the other being the service. BINGO on both!

First off the service was on top of everything. Our waitress treated us like we were the only ones there, we wern't. The food in the menu looked inviting even before we ordered. I got the Enchiladas Del Mar which had snow crap and shrimp inside with rice and beans, all I can say is WOW! Excellent.

My other two guests had a Burrito Grande with carne asada and loved it. The Pollo ChimmiChanga was the other, both looked just as inviting as mine did.

This place "Canes" is something else. We ate on the patio balcony which is on the roof right along the boardwalk on Mission Beach, spectacular view and friendly atmosphere. They have inside stairs and outside stairs for easy access. This place is also poppin' with live music gigs at night and lots of action. You can tell the management knows what they are doing.

Bubbling friendly service from our waitress was tops.

Give it a try, I know for sure we will be back.
