A Wonderful Family Place

Our first meal back in Texas, and we stumbled across a jewel! Family owned, and the family cares about their customers. Good, authentic, Mexican food is like good BBQ.

This is a down home Mexican restaurant. We eat here four to five times a year, everytime we visit the island. The decor is what you would expect from a restaurant owned and operated by MEXICANS. Order Mexican food, not American, not Spanish, MEXICAN! If you don't know the difference, ask. Or maybe McDonald's is more to your liking.

The food was good ("regular" Mexican, not Tex-Mex) and not too expensive. Service was good, helpful (of course there were only 2 customers at the time, including me). Atmosphere was awful. The (semi-)big screen TV was tuned to one of those "news"/propaganda/hate/sarcasm channels. Not what you want to hear when you're eating dinner. Asked for a table in another room... More

Our family vacations in Galveston every year. We had tried this restaurant before about five years ago and ended up leaving furious because the waitress neglected to tell us they did not have what my son ordered untill everone else had been served. Well we made the mistake of giving them a second chance. Bad food. Bad service. Bad mistake.... More

We had the surprise burrito - it has eggs, potatoes, beans, cheese and bacon inside a handmade tortilla. Really very good, hot and fresh. It was $4.25 and they really don't skimp on the ingredients. We will be back for breakfast for sure.

Breakfast is served till 11am. Ordered the Migas, scrambled eggs with onion, jalapeno & tomatoes served over tortilla strips with the best refried bean on the side, chunk potatoes and freshly made flour tortilla bigger than the plate. Large glasses of the strongest ice tea & cold beer. Nicely priced - breakfast for 2 under 20. Old place, not much... More

From the moment we walked in the door on that cold wet windy day to the time we got back in our car to leave, this place was such a wonderful experience. A friendly south of the boarder feel with more than fair prices, the meals were beautifully prepared with flavors that rounded up memories of an old world cantina... More
