You can't beat the price in this small restaurant. Very good Mexican food that feels all freshly made. Friendly staff. Highly recommended , would come back here for sure when I'm around again.

“So Delicious! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This place gave me everything I was craving and more. I don't eat meat and they worked around my needs. It was really quick, great Margaritas, chalupas, tortillas, enchiladas, rice, and beans. The homemade chips and salsa were super tasty to boot. I HIGHLY recommend it! YUM!

“Authentic Mexican Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Just off the campus of Texas A&M - Kingsville and often frequented by college students this is the real deal when it comes to authentic Mexican food. I especially like the shrimp soup. Large menu to choose from and I have never been disappointed.

“Excellent Tex-Mex and lots of it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

We ordered chalupas with rice and beans and one order could easily feed two. It was very good and at a reasonable price. The service was good as well.
