Delicious

This is the second time I visit this place and the food is delicious! I've had their barbacoa tacos which were outstanding. Good thing I only ordered two because they are pretty big and filling. The tortillas are fresh and homemade. I've had their chilaquiles as well and they are very good. I have... read more

It's not texmex but boy was it good. I got a combo meal that had a beef fajita taco and a shredded chicken chalupa with rice and beans and it was all great.

Had breakfast here this morning, had a taco. Outstanding tortillas and there green hot sauce is wicked good and hot. Very low prices and the servers are old school so they know how to take care of you. I know where I'm having breakfast tomorrow;)

The food was great. My party got cheese enchiladas, sirloin rancheros, and beef enchiladas. All plates came with 2 fresh tortillas. The steak was cooked well- not rubbery at all. The gravy on the enchiladas had a lot of flavor. The tortillas is what made it! I will be back next visit to Corpus.

Just like the title says this was a great place to eat. The place was Packed with locals so we knew we'd probably hit a good spot. We were not disappointed. Great food. The frozen margarita was especially good.

One of my favorite Mexican Food places in town. I often order breakfast tacos to go here. The lady at the main counter is always courteous and orders usually do not take very long. It does get crowded though and parking can be a challenge during peak hours.
