Everybody who lives here eats here. The jalisco burrito is gigantic and good. The beef lengua taco, yum. Tripas, yum, yum. Great service.

This place has great food but the customer service is terrible!! I work retail and you should never be so busy that you can't at least greet the customers. This is my third bad experience with this location so I doubt I'll be going back.

We have been dining here for several years. This place is as authentic as it gets. They have a huge selection of menu items and the staff is friendly and efficient. I always get the Pachuga de Pollo and I highly recommend it. The tortillas are homemade and are out of this world. The location can be a bit hard... More

My friends and I went to this restaurant for dinner one evening. Maybe we went on a bad day when it was busy but.... the restroom was just nasty gross. I lost my appetite which really didn't matter because the food didn't look that good. I haven't been back .. can't get past the restroom thing.

Out of the two taquerias on Palmer in Texas City I like this one a little better. I haven't had anything from here that's been mediocre at all. Beef and chicken fajitas are always tender and delicious. The napoles here are great and a nice thing to see on the menu. I personally haven't had any margaritas from here so... More

We have always enjoyed our visits. The cost has always been reasonable. Service is great as is the food. The breakfast supreme plate is a favorite of ours. My husband says the tortillas are the best in area.

I have not been here in a while so I decided to stop and get some fajita nachos. The chicken had a funny taste to it. I think it was old and they were trying to cover up the taste with cheese. I took a few bites and decided to eat just the chips and cheese and leave the chicken.... More

Found this place by accident and so glad we did. Very much worth the money! Food was very very good. Authentic! We are very picky when it comes to Mexican food and this place did not disappoint. Read previous review and I've always payed for chips for pick up at many many restaurants so no big deal. Will be back... More
