Disappointing!

My wife, two children and I went for a late breakfast. The kids had chips and quest, my wife and I ordered the Chilaquiles. When we ordered the Chilaquiles, we were given an option of having them in red or green sauce. I've ordered Chilaquiles in the past, and have NEVER been given an option of... read more

The best Mexican food on the island! I always order the chicken flautas when I eat here. They are so fresh and you can tell they are homemade. This place only uses the freshest ingredients. Everything I have eaten here has been wonderful. Make sure to try the chips and queso, too... Some of the best I have ever tasted!... More

Went to visit family in galveston and had a craving for Mexican food. Wanted something besides the typical fast food stuff. When we drove up to this place I had high hopes...I was in no way displeased. The outside as well as the interior of the building isn't much too look at but we came for the food, not looks.... More

The torta is amazing and reminds me of my trips to Mexico... The bean and cheese tacos are huge but good as well... Very popular and busy place but great service...

We always have breakfast here at least a couple times when we're in Galveston. You get a ton of food, the prices are low and the people have always been great! The Grande is fabulous! Try the D' Mingo Burrito. You will only be disappointed that you couldn't eat the whole thing!

Me and my husband were just walking around looking for a place to eat when we stumbled upon this establishment. It was very clean and had a fun atmosphere. Once we got our food we couldn't believe how much we got and it was all so good!

Horrible. Just freakin horrible all the way around. So I decided to try this place out based on a friend's recommendation. What a mistake that was. So I order the d'mingo(the d is silent? I guess) burrito by phone and get told that it'll be ready in 20 minutes. Well 20 minutes later I'm there and have to wait another... More

The salsa for the table was odd and spicy, but the more I ate it the more I really liked it. The enchiladas were excellent. This is a good solid Authentic/Tex-Mex restaurant. If you think El Chico is great mexican food this is probably not the place for you, and it does not offer much for atmosphere, but I enjoyed... More

We chose this restaurant out of the many Mexican restaurants in Galveston based on all the fabulous reviews online. We had fairly high expectations for the food. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. We are vegetarian, so we asked for vegetarian recommendations, but they didn't really have any. So, we ordered nachos and gorditas with veggies to share. The nachos were the... More

We were hungry after a day on the beach and wanted something quick. Had carry out fro Los Compas. It was fabulous. The chips and salsa were heated. The fish tacos were grilled with a tasty cream sauce and slaw in the shell. We will be sure to visit them on the next trip to Galveston
