Best Tacos ever!!

This restaurant serves the best tacos in the Rio Grande Valley. They never skimp on the fillings. I only wish they had more indoor space to eat in because sometimes the weather is inclement and a seat is hard to find.

Do not go here looking for a large menu, they specialize in tacos and chalupas, the beans are excellent. We have visited, but found out the do take out and since they are close by we call in our order and it is ready in about 10 minutes. I love the chalupas and they are filling.

We just ate one of every type of taco they have and they were fantastic. We had Maya as a server and she was so friendly and helpful. I also got to have homemade limonada (made with limes) and I haven't had that in over a decade. It was so awesome and it took me back to when I lived... More

We walked in & waited to be seated while 3 other groups seated themselves & were served before they remembered us. The food was average. No one came by to check on us the whole time. We had to get up to ask for our ticket. I would not go there again.

The restaurant has a sign outside that says: voted best tacos in Brownsville in 2014. If you go with the assumption that they taste as the ones in Matamoros well, they don't. They are edible but not tasty. Tacos have a pretty decent size and the salsas are just o.k. same with the beans. They are just edible but not... More

We Google searched Brownsville, Texas for the best taco's in town and Taqueria EL Ultimo came up. We drove there and had to look for a place to park it was so busy for lunch time. We got in and seated, looked through the menu and ordered some great food. We each got a mix match of food, tacos, flautas... More

This is a great place to visit if you want to indulge yourself with Mexican cuisine. I highly recommend the "Tacos de bistek". The restaurant is clean and presentable. The staff were friendly. Unfortunately, our waitress "disappeared" quite a few times, but, I don't blame her--- they were extremely busy that night. Hope to eat here again real soon!

So, don't worry about the low prices for the food. This place is so good and the service is great. You can order as many tacos as you like when you are only paying less than a dollar each. The beans are super good too. Everyone from the valley should now about this place it's been around for many years.... More

The tacos are very filling, order 6 to make it a meal. The Frijoles especiales are very good as well.

Those guys have very good Tacos at a very good price. The servers are very busy so it takes a while for them to take care of you if you want something else. The only thing is that they let vendors in and constantly trying to sell all kinds of things. Tacos are great.
