It's ok... nothing rave about the place. Food is ok. .. place is clean. . Service is adequate. Nothing dramatic to say about the place. Kinda loud due to poor acoustics but nothing bad. No drawbacks or negative comments

Hubby had a Mexican combination plate, which he said was very tasty. He especially like the homemade refried beans. The other three of us had the catfish plate which was very good with a light breading on the fish. At $5.95 it was a bargain for the amount of food received. Our server was attentive and friendly. I would definitely... More

Good prices, good food, could use a more intimate atmosphere. I don't like big noisy restaurants, this one is at the edge of that.

This was our go-to place for a year but the food quality has slipped and the service is downright awful. The waiter that we had the very last time we were there was rude and unfriendly. We will not be going back.

The food is very good and also very reasonable. The fish special on Fridays is excellent. The best fish I have ever eaten! And very large servings. It's great! The food is served to your order!

Thought the atmosphere is bad, my only reason for a very good, I always enjoy the food here. It is well cooked and one of my favorite Valley Mexican eateries. The prices are reasonable as well. I had the fajita taco plate, and made special requests for plating and they did an excellent job at no extra charge.

If you want good breakfast in Harlingen or Brownsville, head over to Chapitas. Best breakfast in Harlingen, period My wife and I have been to the Rio Grande valley many times and we always make it a point to stop at Chapitas for breakfast, either coming from or going to McAllen, TX. The portions they give you are copious, the... More
