“Good but a little pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

The place is located in a neighborhood but easy to find. It is a house so it's small. The service and food was good. They have homemade tortilla's. They serve chips and salsa which was good. Just when I looked at the menu and saw the price's I was shocked. Being that it was in a small town and a small business I would have thought small prices. It's not like its a famous chain. All in all it was good.

“Real Tex Mex”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

Very reasonable cost for delicious AUTHENTIC food. So the place wasn't a castle; it looked like a real casita. Delicious crispy tacos, flavorful rice and beans and nice cheese used in the enchiladas.

“Meehhh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

After our experience at Los Jalapenos Cafe, I was a bit apprehensive coming here. But, it was literally next door to the house we had rented in Alpine for spring break. So we gave it a shot. Service was on spot. Food, not so much. Taco Bell'ish in quality. Beans were straight from a can. No eye for detail. Bland. Etc.
But, the place was full, and buzzing. A great family atmosphere, and they sold beer (Yea).Food was out within 10 minutes, servers were personable, and on the ball. Would definitely come back here before Los Jalapenos, but not before Cow Dog.

“Always the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

The first place we stopped at when we arrived in Alpine. We had eaten there 5 years ago when we visited, and hubby could not stop talking about it. The place hasn't changed, and neither has the quality of the food. Plenty of good, hot, home made mexican food. Can't say enough good about here. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed!
