Service was great, lots of great choices on the menu. Easy on and off the freeway. If you are around El Campo, or just passing thru, stop in for some delicious mexican food!!

This is one of my favorite places to eat Mexican food in El Campo. I can go there for breakfast for tacos, lunch for a great special and in the evening they have excellent enchiladas. Even though the building is old the food is cooked to order & it is very good.

My extended family, 15 of us met for lunch at Laura's Café. It was fantastic. The staff was efficient, great, pleasant and friendly. Our experience was great. The next time we, as a family, or just a few of us, are in El Campo we will for sure dine there again.

Stopped in for breakfast because of the good reviews on the restaurant in general, and I'm sure glad I did. As the other reviewers have said, the service here is top notch and the food is very tasty at a great value. If you're passing through town like we were, this is a place worth checking out.

I had the special of the day The El Campo plate. This plate was only $9.99 including the drink. Laura's Cafe is very tasty Mexican food. Laura has some of the best beef enchiladas I have ever had!! I've been here several times and it's always good. I would recommend this if you are looking for some great food!

I enjoy eating here very much. My family and I went here after church. We ordered cheese enchiladas, bed fajitas, quesadillas, and 3 speciality chicken dishes. Everyone loves their food. We will definitely be returning.

I read the reviews on the internet telling how good Laura's is and... they were right. It's not much on ambiance, but the service is excellent .... prompt and attentive. The food is VERY good and the portions are enormous for a fairly modest price. Chips and salsa arrived about as soon as we did and they were also good.... More

We had searched to eat in El Campo when we went there to watch football. My wife picked Laura's even after we saw the restaurant. we were greeted warmly and had some green and red sauce with chips. Both sauces were tasty but needed more heat. I had beef fajitas and my wife had the daily special. both were great... More
