“aside from esthetics, good food and great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

This is the type of place you visit because of the great value and good down home food. The tortillas are homemade and are large. It really is a Locals favorite. I've had several of their dishes from migas (small, crispy corn tortilla chips cooked up with scrambled eggs) to steak ranchero (spicy sauce with soft cubed meat). The wait staff are quick with the order and rarely do you have to wait much to be served.
Now, for not so nice: the building and interior can be deceiving because if you didn't know any better you'd think the place is dump, but don't be fooled.
If you're looking for good food at great value check this place out.

“The Real Deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2013

This restaurant is Mexican food at its most basic. The food is delicious and the service is totally reliable. The atmosphere is old world Mex with photos of Mexican film stars on the walls. One can enjoy seafood or enchiladas, chille rellenos or various tacos. The margaritas are worth the stop in Harlingen alone! The prices are excellent for the generous servings. The place could be"brightened" up a bit, but I guess that is part of the old world charm.

“Good Food and Service..........but”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Food is excellent and service is great but the place could use a good cleaning. The Panchitos were delicious and the frozen margarita made in a blender and not from a pre-made machine but the cleanliness was very lacking. Not sure if I'll return.

“We celebrated our Birthdays there!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

But that is not the only times we have eaten there. It is like a home away from home. The platters are huge and filled with awesome food. My favorite restaurant.
