“Spring break”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is a MUST VISIT any time you are in Galveston. Excellent for the whole family. The food is great. I love finding off the beaten path places to eat for a change of scenery and to experience the local fare.

“Nice lunch”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

We had a nice lunch there; our party had the shrimp tacos, pulled pork sandwich and burgers. The food was good, and the atmosphere and surrounding neighborhood were fun. Highly recommended for a reliable meal.

“Tried again”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This was my second visit to MC. First was for lunch, this time for breakfast. Service is a bit slow and they always seem to get my order wrong. Food was good but not great. We had Corned Beef Tacos and Veggie omelet. It was all OK but not for the price.

Thank you for your feedback and business. I apologize the service was slow, we have a very small kitchen and do our best to keep up with the demand of the dining room. In general the average wait time for your meal to be prepared is 10-15 minutes but of course that is dependent on the entree that was ordered. Every entree is made to order fresh and if there are special requests then that may minimally increase the wait time. We strive to move quickly and efficiently to provide the guest with a premium quality meal and a wonderful dining experience. We hope you'll visit us again on your next visit to Galveston.

“Tasty Local's place”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Food was very good. Good value. We would go back.
Only dislike - food is ordered at the counter, then you are seated and food is brought to your table. Lots of standing in line.

“Nice spot for casual fare”
Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Had lunch here on a Saturday. Busy and small place, but we were able to get a seat without a long wait. This is a counter service restaurant, with limited table service. You order from a menu at counter, pay and given a number to display at your table. Drinks are also self-service. Food is delivered to your table when ready. We had a burger and some shrimp tacos. Both were very good and generously portioned. I would stop in again if I were in the area.

Thank you for your feedback and your business! We consider ourselves modified counter service meaning that all the customer should have to do is place an order, get your first drink, and find a place to sit. Our staff should attend to your every need after that. We look forward to your next visit!
