Great White Queso

My wife and I are Mexican food lovers, and while in town for our grandson's graduation, visited this establishment. It was much larger than when we previously visited several years ago. The service was fast and courteous, the food (Chili relleno in my case) was very good, but a bit small sized... read more

Visited there twice in the last month. The food was great but we may not be back. The server was conceited and even disappeared on break leaving us to fend for ourselves to check out. She never returned to our table after taking our order and announcing that she was the best. Getting stuck with her twice is too much.

I love their menu. It is not the typical Tex-Mex. The food is not as greasy as most other restaurants.

Definitely try their guacamole! Home of the white cheese is an understatement! So good- great staff, fast service, I could go on.... Whenever we have family in town- they always want 'The Hat!' We eat here for lunch or dinner at least once a week!

I've had the carne asada and it was very good. Today I had the carnitas. Very good as well and enough for 3 meals. For Longview I think this is a great place to eat.

The food is very good. The chips are fresh and the salsa is great. I love the cilantro flavor and just the right heat. Corn tortilla are nothing special, flour are better. Sweet tea is gooood. Rice and beans are worth getting with any meal order. The white queso may mess with you at first with its albino color. It... More

The wait staff was rude and obnoxious. They try to rush you through your order, and then when you get what you ordered, it's not right. Then they'll try to argue with you about what you ordered. There's another one in Hallsville, Tx that's newer; Food is the same, but waitstaff is much more couteous.
