“Lives Up To The Reviews”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Stopped at Fort Stockton TX on way to Burbank. Decided to eat dinner Wed night based on TA reviews.
Restaurant only open Tuesday to Friday for certain hours.
It opens for dinner at 5 pm. Came initially at 4 left and did tour of Riggs Museum and returned at 4:50. At that time 18 individuals were waiting for them to open.
Building is nothing fancy. Accomodates only about 40 customers.
Food was great, sampled 4 different items on combo plate. Pricing was very reasonable. I talked to the "waitress" to understand why this has 150 TA reviews from all different types of people. I saw everyone there had a smartphone and probably came after reading reviews that they were number one rated restaurant of over 60 I think.
Waitress at dinner told me she was the owner. She cooks lunch then cooks all food for dinner, takes shower, that waitresses dinner. She told me it was how she could control quality on all meals. Besides that she loves to cook . She of course does all the back office accounting and ordering. No wonder she "only " works 4 days a week.
Looking around room, there were young and old. Appeared everyone loved the food and service.
If you can make lunch or dinner Tuesday through Friday, highly recommend you give this place a try. It is unusual to find such a gem in a somewhat remote area. She also had displayed several "trip advisor certificates of appreciation and awards". I now know why.

“Great place to stop heading home from Big Bend.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

Enjoyed a great meal here on our way home to Austin. They were able to seat all 8 of us. The salsa was perfectly spicy. Highly recommend the Guadalajara, the enchiladas, and the fajita burritos. And the service was very friendly.

“Excellent Mexican Food in unlikely place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

We had a wonderful dinner --the pico de gallo was so fresh it tasted like they had made it just for us -- both steak and chicken were really tender and well seasoned -- and the chips and salsa were very fresh and delicious. You can bring in your own alcohol.

“Call first”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2014

Excellent food. Only seats about 50 so call for a reservation even for only one. They will take it and that seems to be what the people in the know do.CALL 432-336-5368.

“Still clearly the best in Fort Stockton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

We visited in late June, 2014. Although there were several people waiting, we were nevertheless seated within a very reasonable time. There are about a dozen tables, usually all full. The atmosphere is pleasant; someone has gone to a lot of work to paint the pictures on the walls. The menu has excellent variety for a small family-run restaurant and the prices are good. My food was quite excellent; my wife's was also, although the quality of her chicken was a little under par (however that was no doubt how the restaurant received it, not their fault). The wait staff moves at the speed of light, and every table is well served. Our waitress, Adona, is the owner, and is always very gracious. She has several family members working, and the excellence certainly shows. Travelers should be aware that Ft. Stockton is far-flung, located among a Martian landscape, and that this restaurant is only open Tuesday-Friday for lunch and dinner (they work so furiously, no wonder). Also, Ft. Stockton restaurants do not serve alcohol, although it is available through other sources. If you find it appropriate to stay in Fort Stockton, this is definitely your place for a good Tex-Mex dinner. We'll be coming again. And again.
