Good food at reasonable prices

Have eaten here with Brownsville friends several times, and the food is always good at reasonable prices. Haven't eaten here for a while only because we have several good Mexican restaurants in Harlingen, where we live. As I recall we had very good nachos, enchiladas, and cold beer the last time... read more

Great service and fabulous food! Reasonable cost. We visit here every year we are in the area. Quantity is more than you expect. Chips and salsa are very good, lunch specials are recommend.

As I recall we had very good nachos, enchiladas, and cold beer the last time we visited Vermillion..The service was very good and friendly.

Four of us had lunch and all meal were delicious. The chicken fajita sald was fresh, the chicken tender and the homemade tortilla chips crunchy. One friend had the basa fish and the sauces was wonderful. Mary Lou and Daisy took the time to help us with the area and Dan, the owner, chatted with us. Everyone was very friendly.

The Vermilion is a great local restaurant. I prefer restaurants that are not part of a chain. This place is a local watering hole with fine food. The wait staff is efficient and fast. My group of 9 people was served quickly and our food came out promptly.

I went to the Vermillion today and ordered the Fajita Plate special...I hadn't visited in a while but always remembered this restaurant because it was where the "locals" went to eat and enjoy a couple beers! They are known for their nachos! But, today, I enjoyed the beef fajita plate. The charro beans were excellent tasting. This is the kind... More

I live in Dallas, and love coming to Brownsville for the food! The Vermillion is one of my favorite restaurants. Their mexican food is my favorite.. you can't go wrong with any of it. The nachos always look amazing, but haven't tried them bc I always get the same thing. I get the enchiladas every single time, and they never... More

Vermillion is a proven staple in the heart of Brownsville for so many years. I've been here a handful of times with no regrets only a happy feeling I leave each and every time. Thank you so much for the great food.

Love the fajita nacho delux and the Pancho Villa plate. Big menu. It's all good. This is where the locals go.

Every time I go to Vermilions, I have a great time. I mostly stick to appetizers, because I'm enjoying a nice cold beer. Their ceviche is the best I've ever had. And the nachos are delicious.
