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

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.

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.

Be prepared to use/practice your Spanish if you come here for some of their delicious Mexican food. The menu is exclusively in Spanish and the staff that was there when we ate only spoke Spanish. The food was very well done. My favorite item was a special soup (I think that was its name "sopa especial"). We liked everything we... More

The food was fresh and very flavorful. We had tacos for the most part, and figured out that at .99 each, you need to order at least a plate of six to make a meal. They are small, just two or three bites each, but no problem there... we just ordered more. It had a very "local" feel and it... More

I visited this place because I thought it would be something similar to the one in Matamoros Tamps. Mexico, which is the border town of Brownsville, boy was I wrong, the tacos were not good at all, the tortillas used for our tacos were expired I guess because they had a funny taste to it plus they weren't warm/hot, to...
