I have never had a bad meal here. My husband is a picky eater but loves to eat here. I don't have a favorite meal. Everything is made fresh.

We were in McAllen Texas for a month and we actually went to Coasta mesa three times. The Food is Authentic Mexican food. The Family favorite is Fajitas Tampeque, a mixture of enchilads and and fajitas that really is an abundant meal full of flavors and spicy but not Hot food. Home Tortillas are a real treat. Great Beer selection... More

We went to the location on S. Main near La Plaza mall to meet some people there. While waiting we were treated to several birthday cakes with all the hoopla presented to persons celebrating someone's birthday. Definitely a family tradition here it seemed. We had nachos called "Panchos" here served with fajita meat (skirt steak) instead of Tex-Mex style (ground... More

Three birding trips to McAllen have required us to eat here multiple times per trip. Well prepared, fresh ingredients, and a wide variety of choices. The restaurant is normally rather busy which makes it a bit noisy; it seems popular with families and groups. Not fancy, but excellent food and service.

Went to the location right off the expressway by La Plaza Mall. The restaurant is really nice. The service was great. The food was really good. My father is very picky when it comes to meat and he was very pleased with his plate. Everyone liked their food, even the children. There was one thing I didn't like and that... More

A friend suggested we eat here and were not disappointed. Good service, open atmosphere, fair pricing. If your in the area this is a must for Tex-Mex lovers.
