Great Pork Carnitas

Nice atmosphere for Lunch or Dinner. Drinks from the bar can not be recommended, but the meal was very nice. We shared the Carnitas and with the side dishes of rice and nicely prepared black beans made for a great lunch.

We went there for team lunch but none of us liked the buffet then some of us ordered tacos. Buffet was below average and so didn't like it.

Whenever I want authentic tacos Boca Chica is the only place to go. I also like the cheese enchiladas.

Great place for fast food Mexican food! Their salsa is fantastic and the chips and guacamole were excellent. I grabbed mine to go. Had the red Chile pork burrito, which was excellent, but noticed after I ordered that they have a green Chile mix quesadilla. Will have to have that next time! A lot of food for the price!

Pretty average food - a step up from Taco Bell for sure - their main restaurant serves the more filling/traditional Mexican fare. Service is pretty quick, but it can get nuts around lunchtime. Usually have the flautas lunch special - $5.50 for flautas, lettuce rice and a drink is not too bad at all.

I really enjoyed the patio and the interior of the restaurant was very nice. The food was mediocre and there are many more authentic Mexican restaurants in the area (within walking distance). I did enjoy the guacamole.

The food is served hot and relatively fast. The quantity was good for the price. I prefer the food across the street at Boca Chica aver the Taco House. But if you do not feel like a more formal meal than this will do. Not much parking and only one handicap spot.

I've been here a few times now and every visit I try something new. I have not yet been disappointed. And even better are the affordable prices and the fact that they sell salsa outright. Good stuff.
