We stopped in because we were looking for something other than fast food on our trip across Texas (on Interstate 10). This little restaurant is at the other end of Dickenson and away from the cluster of hotels near the interstate. My husband is not normally a Mexican food fan (we get heavy Sonoran in Phoenix) but was willing to give it a try when we asked if we could bring our 2 little dogs onto the 3-table patio out front. They said yes and we went to get them out of the car.
What followed was a hearty basket of nice, warm, thick and crunchy chips with some tasty (a little heat there!) salsa waiting on us along with big glasses of ice water - including one for the dogs with the offer of a dish.Two icy beers in frosted mugs were quickly brought. I had the Corona marinated soft tacos (with rice, beans and a freshly roasted jalapeno) and my husband the sampler with a fresh chili relleno, beef and chicken enchiladas, a crunchy taco and rice and beans. He loved it.
The food was incredibly tasty - the relleno, red and green sauces were light and oh so flavorful. No heat, just flavor. The soft tacos' meat was tender and had great flavor that shone through the little sprinkle of cheese, chopped onion and cilantro. Everything was fresh -plus the beans light and creamy and the rice moist with flecks of onion and tomato. They told us everything was made in house, even the flan. We split one, due to the tastiness of the food we had eaten generously, and it was thick and custardy with the browned sugar incorporated in the top.
As said, the food was great. The service was wonderful, even to asking if we needed a little somthing for the dogs to eat. (We had brought our own.) The front patio had no ambiance, it was next to the street, but we totally enjoyed being able to eat real food, no take out, at a table.
I heartily recommend trying this little restaurant when you find yourself in Fort Stockton. It's worth the block or so off the usual stuff by the interstate.
