I spend 8 days in two cities across Texas and this was the best meal I had. In addition to the amazing, delicious, and filling shrimp dinner, the margarita was only $2.50. It wasn't the best drink I ever had but I will definitely go back to this restaurant for that shrimp every time I'm in Corpus Christi!

The food was delicious and our only complaint was they only serve Pepsi products and we are Coke fans

The service at this location was poor and the food was overpriced. We have been frequenting this location since it opened it's doors but seems that the overall service is not being provided.
Do not order ChoriQueso or you will be disappointed. At $6.95, small order, you will get melted cheese and two flour tortillas along with sauteed onions, on the side.

Visited this restaurant on a weekday with only five other tables being attended by two employees.

This place use to be so good but on our last trip it has gone down. Our refried beans were cold!! Had the La Reyna plate and only the quesadillas were good everything else was tasteless. Would not go back especially for what they charge.

It was recommended on TripAdvisor to eat here but the location off SPID had no ambiance. The food was just ok. Friend avocado was interesting but no one else in my group liked their food.
