Nice atmosphere, good Tex Mex food.

This is a place I like to take my family whenever they visit from out of town. Great tortillas (made fresh), margaritas and queso. Normally for dinner I'll recommend fajitas, enchiladas (sour cream chicken/green chicken) or chicken fried steak. Fair prices, and big portions. One thing I... read more

My family and I went for the first time as a family. My kids really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. My wife and I like it too. It had been years since I had been and I enjoyed the food and atmosphere also. Yes, there seemed to be a bit more table dirty than I would have expected, but the... More

Not a place I would go. Wait staff is slow and most of the food from previous diners is wiped of tables onto floor. Lost my appetite fast.

We went here with family and enjoyed watching the tortillas being made as we waited for our table. Seated quickly, ordered burrito, fish tacos, very tasty and fulfilling. Recommended place

Home made salsa, fresh tortillas (best in town), and good service. Hard to beat the price for what you get. We can feed a family of 4 for just over $30 and usually have left overs for the next day. We go a couple times a month on average.

Tortillas made before your very eyes. Delicious! You could just eat these, perhaps with just a melted cheese topping. But everything is wonderful. The I-410 location is the oldest, but the RT 281 location has the most ambiance. Have been at both locations several times.

The Alamo Café is awesome! They make their own fresh tortillas, and they are delicious! Their salsa is amazing! I had the chimichanga and it did not disappoint!
