This is one of the favorite Mexican Restaurants in Corpus. Real Authentic Mexican Fare and a friendly atmosphere. Wait Staff makes you feel right at home. Check out their Bakery at the Everhart Location!

Took a group of 12 for lunch and had good food and a good time. Was worried service might be slow but it wasn't. Go early if you don't want to wait!
