Not the greatest service, and not the greatest MExican food you can find.

“Amazing Tacos”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

I have been past this place many times, but never tried it. A co-worker recommended it for lunch and I ordered the tacos and they were very good. Great food and a great price. I will be back!

“Great Food when parking and tables available”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

I live in California but Emilias has become a family tradition. We go at least two or three times each time we visit Brownsville. Parking at the Elizabeth Street location can be tough during the breakfast and lunch rush. This place is also small and it may be hard to get a table. There is another location on the road that takes you out to Padre Island. This location is a little bigger and has more parking. THE FOOD IS GREAT!! Barbacoa is really good. Try a flour tortilla with any choice of stuffing. (meat, eggs, potatoes, chorizo, etc) You should also try the grilled buttermilk biscuits. I will be in Brownsville in three weeks and am already looking forward to this place. Have been going here for over 10 years!! Price is extremely reasonable. You eat a ton of food for little money!
