“Good Food, good service, reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2011

The title covers it all "Good Food, good service, reasonable prices" They give you a lot of food for a good price. The homemade flour tortillas was the best I ever ate. The people were friendly and provided good service. It is off the beaten path(about a mile off Hwy 77 into town ) but well worth it. This is the real Mexican food. Not your fast food junk.

“Some of the best Mexican food in Texas!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2011

Stopped here on the way from South Padre on hwy 77. Ate here 3 years ago on a trip and it is still just as good. Huge portions, great value. Huge carne guisada burrito about $3.50. Plates around $6 or $7, puffy tortillas too big for the container. Friendly service. Will stop again the next time we come through.

“It's always crowded for a reason”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2011

Good food, excellent prices, generous portions, friendly and competent staff. Very rare value for this little town. Restaurant is close to Texas A&M University, Kingsville, TX. It's as comfortable as a good pair jeans. I always thought tortillas were tortillas 'til I ate here. An absolute diet wrecker!
