I go here often and I love their huge breakfast tacos! Delicious and done well. I love this place and would highly recommend to anyone that visits Port Isabel.

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...

I had read about Isabel's online and had always wanted to try it while visiting SPI. We got to this time and really enjoyed it! Their tortillas are HUGE! The size of hub caps. One of 2 restaurants in Port Isbell that makes them this large. (Manuel's being the other.) The Mexican food was good, but not outstanding. The tacos,... More

Delicious and very reasonably priced. Hubby and I payed $15 for a Contodo breakfast taco (huge and filling), Huevos Rancheros, side of potatoes, coffee, and two iced teas. It's to bad we went on the last day of our vacation because had we know about this place we would have avoided the other over priced Mexican restaurants. This is the... More

Whenever we visit South Padre Island every fall we have to have breakfast nearly every morning at Isabel's café. It is authentic, casual, friendly and just plain good. Laura Bush has even given it high praise. You might think when you walk in that they could update a little but personally I think that just adds to the charm. This... More

Not fancy by any stretch of the imagination but real nice people, good Mexican food and American as well as super breakfast.Prices are great. Don't miss this one. Sometimes it's hard to find a parking spot but worth the effort.

Inexpensive, authentic and delicious. Family run and very friendly, I love taking my parents there for lunch. One of the best Mexican food restaurants in Port Isabel!

I live an hour away from Isabel's Cafe and my husband and I drive here every weekend for breakfast. Being that they serve breakfast all hours if the day, we enjoy a late brunch here on Saturdays. Very good prices and the best breakfast tacos around. The lunch plates are fairly inexpensive but the portions are small. But the breakfast... More

I'm a local and live only a few miles away. We eat at Isabel's for breakfast almost every weekend, at least once. Try their Con Todo tacos , and if your adventurousness try them smothered in chili and cheese!! Carne Guisada is awesome also!!! Don't miss it!
