“Good Food Good price”
Reviewed May 20, 2014

Good basic Mexican food. It is obvious this place gets busy at lunch with a large number of locals. Service, while not overly friendly was quick and efficient. I would return.

“Bland but quick and cheap”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

I'm not sure how people are raving about the food. Yes, it was served very quickly and the queso we ordered for the chips was good but overall, everything was very bland and tasteless.

L usually love gauc but this was the consistency of thick soup and no taste. The rice was completely bland.

It was not as dirty as some other reviews said but I wouldn't want to sit in those chairs for a long time.

In general, we have been unimpressed with the choice of good restaurants in the Corpus Christi area with the exeption of major chains. None of them have reviews that blow me away and most of them look like dilapidated shacks from the outside with not much better on the inside.

“Affordable Port Aransas Food, Fast, Fun, Friendly”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Great breakfast and Mexican food every day. Entire menu always available. Not a 'fresh seafood' place, but most items are unbelievably low priced, on the table in minutes, hot and freshly made. This is where the locals eat. Good place to take your catch, but prepare it for cooking first. Try part fried and part grilled. Best place on the island to feed a hungry family.

Cons: Can be very busy and loud
Still has a smoking area inside.
Bathrooms are a little rough.

“Best Mexican restaurant in the area!”
Reviewed April 19, 2014

I have eaten at San Juan restaurant more times than I can remember and the food and service are always excellent. A very friendly family run restaurant that goes above and beyond to please all of its customers. Try their shrimp nachos and the Mexican shrimp cocktail, they are great. Also, for a Mexican restaurant they serve the best hamburger anywhere in the Port Aransas and Corpus Christi area. The prices are very reasonable, the service great, and the food is always excellent. What else could you ask for. I highly recommend this Mexican restaurant!
