Most popular is the Jalisco Burrito. It's HUGE and very inexpensive! I get that about 7 out of 10 times and so does almost everyone I know! The fajitas are good, the beans and rice are good, the enchiladas are good... you just can't go wrong!

I have eaten here about once a week if not more since I have moved to Texas City... 12 years ago. It's safe to say that in that time I have learned why this place probably considered Texas City's number one restaurant. Low prices, generous portions of good food. The Jalisco Burrito has to be number one. Like all restaurant... More

Never can go wrong with Taqueria especially this one. Food is always great and the staff including the manager make sure you have your food in a timely fashion, especially when there's a large group of people... Breakfast is also great!!!!

This place has great food but the customer service is terrible!! I work retail and you should never be so busy that you can't at least greet the customers. This is my third bad experience with this location so I doubt I'll be going back.
