“Repeat Customer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012 via mobile

Every time we go to East Texas, we eat at least one meal at this restaurant. I love their chilies rellenos. Most places batter fry a small chili pepper with a sliver of cheese in it. This place stuffs a large poblano pepper with either meat or cheese and batter fries it. They are delicious. The four of us ordered large dinners with soft drinks and one large beer (for me) and the bill with tax was a few coins less than $60.

This place offers Mexican food a little better than the average quality for a reasonable price.

“Bad service mediocre food.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2011 via mobile

I've never had a waiter with such bad breath it actually put me off my food but there's a first time For everything. Also two of the meals we got were practically inedible and the store manager apologize but didn't offer any sort of compensation meal or even a free dessert
