Signs you're in the local surfer hangout: a real Volkswagen van, balanced atop a pole at the entrance, with life-size, loony caricatures (including Elvis) spilling out of the windows, and broken surfboards affixed to the restaurant's ceiling. Fresh seafood, sandwiches, and such Tex-Mex standards as burritos and nachos make up the menu, which you can enjoy at inside tables or picnic tables on a terrace. Owner Mike McGinnis is famous for making a blistering hot sauce, which
you can buy by the bottle.
