The food was fresh & delicious. I really enjoyed the sausage gravy that had giant chunks of sausage patties in it. Just good home cooking without the frills.

Great breakfast place. We stopped on our way out of town and it was perfect. Get there early - it fills up fast!

Had an excellent choice for seven different people. Everybody ordered something different and everybody enjoyed all of it. Service was excellent. It seemed to be a family oriented business. It didn't hurt that the price was very reasonable also!

Great Breakfast. Stayed in Padre 5 nights and ate there 3 times. Small type restaurant but great service and great breakfast items. Good Mexican and American type breakfast. They need to open up there window blinds during the day to get more natural light in the dinning room while have breakfast and lunch.

This place had the best breakfast. Had the fajitas and eggs, and added the Jed potatoes, WOW. The potatoes had such a great flavor with garlic, onions and serranos you couldn't beat it. The beans were so fresh and the eggs cooked perfectly. The thing you can't miss? Their delicious pecan pancakes. This place was awesome. If you're a breakfast... More
