Great place in the Downtown Area, I reached it by accident and don't regret the visit. It could use more publicity. Food and service are great!!

Located in the Historic Hamilton Hotel on Jarvis Plaza in Downtown Laredo. Great breakfasts and award winning menudo. The fish tacos are a favorite for lunch or dinner and the chicken fried steak is the best in town.

They have two locations, I've only eaten at the downtown location several times. Their Caldo De Res (Beef Soup) is a HUGE bowl that could easily feed two. Difference is they use a very good cut of beef. Dr. Pepper Ribs are slow cooked and fall off the bone. They're also HUGE and very tasty. Chicken Fried Ribs are another... More

Having lived in south Texas for many years, they've obviously gotten to know a good many restaurants, and El Catan was the place they picked. It's at the back corner of what was a hotel, and its location at the corner of... More

We decided to check it out and were pleasantly surprised by how good the food is. On Saturday we had typical enchiladas and flautas, but the chef spoke to us and... More
