Good Authentic Mexican Food

All dishes are very authentic. Enchiladas and tamales are excellent. They also have great homemade "orange sauce". Friendly service. Locally owned.

Old original Mexican food restaurant ran by the same family for generations. Food is still prepared with authentic recipes that this restaurant is famous for. This is not hype people. This us the real deal.

We stopped here based on the reviews found online. One thing we failed to pick up on was that the majority of the reviews were from residents of Corsicana, and that it is the "best Mexican food restaurant in town", which isn't saying much. Corsicana isn't a big town. It was obvious when we walked in that this was the... More

I have lived in this area my entire life and this place has been a steady place in my ongoing diet of Mexican food! We eat here at least once a month and at one point every Wednesday for the enchilada special. Service is usually pretty good and the food is usually good but the big thing for this place... More

Been going here for twenty years. Hands down best restaurant in town. Lights are always dim. Service is always wonderful. The place is run by multi generations of the same family. They only use bottled soda. They never rush your dinner. They use real beans. Too many these day are used to plastic instant food. You won't find any here.... More

Ate here over the weekend with 3 friends. We were seated right away and our waitress arrived promptly to take our drink orders. When she delivered the drinks, we placed our food orders. Three baskets of chips later, we had yet to receive our food. I had a shrimp quesadilla which was singed around the edges - the tortilla was... More

The adults food was okay, pretty middle-of-the-road for Tex-Mex here in Texas. The kids menu was excellent, and the chicken strips were easily the best thing on the table! Service was quick and efficient and we were in and out in just about an hour for dinner. They were open on a Sunday night, which seem to be a rarity... More

Classic 70 year institution. On Wednesdays except a wait for special enchiladas dinner & $1.50 Margaritas. Try to sit on the eastside where the bar is located.
