“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2012

This family-run place has been around for many years. I make it a point to eat here whenever I visit Harlingen.
The food is extremely good. I will say that their cheese enchiladas are the best I have ever eaten, and I eat Mexican food a lot.
The service is fast and efficent. Great place!

“Nice change from an east coast "Mexican" restaurant!”

The food was great - I ordered the gentleman's plate based in the reviews and as suggested by the waitress. Glad I decided to go authentic this trip.

“Best in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Been a customer for 42 years.

Nothing changes; it's always excellent, breakfast or lunch.

The cheese enchiladas are the best in the world. Also order the beef tacos, medium.

Get a migas a la mexicana, crispy taco for breakfast.

Their frijoles a la charra are the best on the planet as are the rice and refried beans.

You'll need a large-diameter straw to enjoy the salsa it is so good.

“FOOD STILL FROZEN”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2012

Came here on our neighbor's say-so. It is overcrowded and slow service. I heard their fish was excellent, so I overlooked everything else. Then when my fish came, it was a big piece, but the edges were dry and the middle was still frozen! I've eaten a lot of places and had a lot of fish, but never got served a piece still frozen. And then I had to argue with them about getting another piece, which I was very wary of. They should have comped the meal, but didn't do anything. Will never go back!
