“Great service and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

We attended a birthday lunch for my brother-in-law and had a great experience. The food is typical Tex-Mex: delicious. The prices were excellent. I had the Steak Tampiquena, a 6 oz portion of flank steak, marinated and char-grilled, accompanied by a cheese enchilada, guacamole and pico de gallo. The chips and salsa were excellent...will definitely eat here again!

“Best lunch specials in town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

On Tuesdays the Steak Tampequena (sp?) and Carnitas Plate are very good and the Wednesday mole specials are spicy and tasty. Located on Naco-Perrin between a kwik Mart and Dazzles, it has burgler bars and a view of the parking lot. You won't care.

“The Best Mexican/Tex-Mex Food in Town!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2011

I am so glad they opened the #2 restaurant by the Perrin-Beitel Post Office and that it is open late. The #1 location is only open until 3pm. The food is the same at either location, no difference what so ever! Very consistant. The menudo is just like my Dad made it and the caldo de res tastes like my Mom's and mine. The waitstaff is excellent and very friendly.
We have been going there for many years and will continue to go there.

God continue to bless the owners and staff!
