Great Texmex Food

Not too much not too little that includes the very reasonable prices. One of the for places will want to stop for lunch. Try the Mexican Plate # 2 but be ready for a nice siesta afterwards.

Great food,Great Prices and attentive servers. What more can you ask for? We had noted the crowded parking lot every time we passed and finally made it for a meal. Has to be one of the Top Spots for Breakfast and Lunch!

A great inexpensive meal and quiet atmosphere. The food is hot, fast and good. Staff is very friendly and family oriented. Get there early because they fill up quick!! Menu is simple with American and Mexican choices. We went Mexican and was glad. For the area, it is hard to find good inexpensive Mexican food. Nothing fancy about this place... More

I was hungry and the parking lot was full at 1 p.m., so I stopped at Isabel's. I had one of the simple Mexican plate meals. Not fancy, just delicious. Others were ordering breakfast even after 1 p.m., and they clearly knew how good it would be by the comments to the waitress when ordering. For lunch or breakfast, Isabel's... More

Isabel's is a great restaurant to taste Mexican style food. Don't miss the flour tortilla tacos with an assorted choice of eggs with ham, chorizo, sausage and other ingredients. Although the building is not fancy, you'll not be disappointed by the food!

I eat here every time I go to South Padre Island. It is a small place but the breakfast tacos are amazing. Especially the Con Todo!! Can get crowded at times but service is quick. Maybe I shouldn't be telling people about this place. Lol
