Place was dirty. Waiter came to our table four times, to take drink and food order then return with the food and then the check. Drink was empty most the time. Food tasted like it came out of the freezer to the microwave and they threw some shredded cheese and sauce on it. Credit Card machine was down so I... More

This is a small restaurant so my advice to you is go early, like around 11am if want to eat at a table inside, we went at 11:30 am and didn't have any wait time. My wife enjoyed the Wednesday lunch special of enchiladas suiza, tender flavorful chicken enchiladas with an awesome green sauce which came with rice, beans and... More

While always less crowded and often overlooked, it's meals were always sublime comfort food. Always just got the Mexican Plate, since it had everything I would ever want in a meal. Also, great place for breakfast tacos. It's where a great number of locals fuel up for the day ahead with super cheap and good breakfast tacos.

El Charrito is our favorite place to eat. When we come in from Galveston it's the first place we head to. Love love their green chicken enchiladas. Also try the beef fajita Enchiladas Campisinas with Chile Carne on top, wow! They make a ton of tacos every morning so everything is always fresh. You can bring your own beer or... More

My favorite Saturday morning breakfast is the outdoor pickup window here. The tacos are being made then and there as you order and are Always hot and fresh. Go up to the window and place your order ( I like to call ahead if I am ordering more than a couple). Don't worry if you see a line, it goes... More

Super underrated little dive with a nice pick up window outside that always has a line. Food is cheap and always fresh. Best tea in town! Drawbacks are the funky parking in the back & on the side. Only 6-8 tables inside and about 4 outside but well worth it. Never crowded. Georgetown's best kept secret!

The line forms early for the best breakfast tacos around! They'll fix them however you want and they are loaded.

Food and service were both great. No frills. Actually has the look of some of the locales restaurantes in Mexico that we've been to.
