“Best Tex Mex on the island”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

Dependable food and service make this a regular stop for us. Be prepared for a wait during dinner hours on weekends; it is very popular and always busy. They also serve a nice breakfast on weekends.

We go there every time we go to Galveston. It is family run, terrific food and incredible value for the money. Staff are friendly and service is very good. If you like good Tex Mex be sure to go!
