Delicious, Good Price & Service

I ordered a Chicken(3) Flautas plate that came with avocado, sour cream, rice. My husband ordered a Pork Chops plate that came with beans, rice, flour or corn tortillas. He ordered corn tortillas and ALL OF THE FOOD WAS DELICIOUS! The waitress was very friendly and very attentive.

They have the best salsa of any restaurant in Corpus. It is so good that you could drink it! Many great dishes especially the shrimp and garlic sauce. The enchiladas verdes were especially good. Not in a great neighborhood but well worth the trip for good Mexican food.

This was one of my favourite places to eat when I lived in Corpus Christi (admittedly some years ago, now). La Costenita was pretty much a dive in the industrial part of town, but the food was fantastic. The Diablo Shrimp was my favourite.
