The place looks like a dump, but has absolutely great food, at a reasonable price. Order at the counter. No wine, but they have beer. Cash Only.

Not a bad small place. Under seasoned food, but their green chili sauce is Very good! Cheap prices, lots of menu items. Would be okay for a fast lunch.

Huge portions of tasty food. Plenty of seating. Hot, fresh tortilla chips with 4 varieties of salsa. Even the rice and beans were top notch. Cash only.

We had dinner here and we were impressed by the quality and quantity of then cuisine. The Chimichangas are over the top. Fresh ingredients and home made tortillas make this a delicious meal. It is large and very filling. The Torta and Chicken Tacos have the same quality, fresh ingredients as the previous dish. Also, the Flautas fit the same... More

I did not have a chance to eat here because they do not accept credit cards. I never carry cash. The menu looked good. I was slightly disappointed.

Really excellent shrimp cocktail (forget how far from the sea they are; they must have a really good source, and this shrimp cocktail is wonderful!!!). HUGE, pretty much all the shrimp you could eat, and only about $8.25. And no matter the price, one of the best shrimp cocktails I've ever had!!! Definitely the best value, I've ever had, outside...

Yes, the setting is a bit funky, often crowded, but delicious food and friendly, efficient service. We had two different burritos, one bean and cheese, a real staple and it was good. The other was nopalitos and beans and it was out of this world. Very reasonable pricing.

This is Mexican food, not Tex-Mex; and I love it! Yes, it is a hole-in-the-wall and that may scare some off, but I have to say just try it out! They have some of the best food and their chorizo burrito is the best I have ever had.

Driving on I-10 and looked on trip advisor for reviews. This had 2 good reviews and we like Mexican and off the beaten path. It was dirty.... filthy. Flies. Bullet holes repaired in windows. Mediocre food. Yes, its cheap with largish greasy portions. We didn't get food poisoning is the only plus.

Being from Texas we have high standards for Mexican food. This place surpassed all expectations. An order at the counter cafe with simple decor, but some of the best Mexican food. Awesome salsa bar with over four choices of yummy salsa to accompany the fresh, hot homemade chips delivered to your table. Love the street tacos, tostadas, and especially the... More
