Food was very good and authentic. I oredered a frozen margarita,( wasn't frozen) it was more liquid than anything. It's really too dark to read the menu, unless you're by a window or directly under a light. The jukebox came on too loud and we...More

The food there is delicious. Can't go wrong with your choice! Had a hard time making our choices since all looked delicious but we all loved our picks. Prices were very affordable as well.

Has the feel of an old mexican restaurant , geat food, and freindly patrons and staff. The drinks are texas sized, so order only 1 if you are driving! $80 for dinner for four adults including a drink each and coffee!

Have eaten here on my last few visits to Mcallen. I like the place because of its convenience to airport hotels. The food quality and taste are a constant. The service is sometimes hit or miss. Will continue to stop in on my visits.

Great food if you're on the go for a quick buffet. Place was too busy and noisy, you can't even enjoy your cup of Joe. Homemade tortillas corn were good, flour tortillas had a hard texture it was not easy to tear apart. Under staffed,...More

I ate here a year ago and the place was empty. I ate here recently, and they were essentially empty again with a huge amount of table and chairs. There was no lighting. They tried to let outside and ambient light the place. It was...More
