Gem on the port!

Not such a well kept secret. Excellent food can't believe the prices! Great family run business! Must stop when heading to SPI. Lots of locals.

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

This restaurant is only open until 3:00 p.m.daily. We arrived at 2:00 p.m. and they were out of the daily special which I was sorry about. I had a Mexican plate that was teriffic. My wife had a breakfast plate of french toast and bacon which she said was very good. Breakfast is served anytime. The restaurant is small but... 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

Always have heard about Isabel's but never seemed to have stopped for a meal. This Sunday, decided to try it for a late breakfast. Great decision. The early crowds had thinned out, so we were immediately seated. I had the Huevos Rancheros with ham. The eggs were cooked just right (sunny side up) and the Ranchero salsa was like it... More

The greatest place to get consistently good food. This family restaurant makes it a favorite of locals. Their Monday caldo lunch special is a favorite of many. Their breakfast menu is also a favorite. The expanded dining area was a great addition to aid in serving the many people who frequent this eating establishment. Prices are reasonable. A must when...
