Family atmosphere with helpful, English speaking staff. They offer daily specials and you will get more than you can eat! The food is authentic, fresh and great! Seafood soup is the best!

My favorite breakfast place. The biscuits and gravy with some homemade salsa on top will stick with you well through lunch. Before I became a vegan I would fight a late night out with a breakfast of 3 enchiladas with a couple fried eggs on top.. just plain good Mex food. Now that I'm vegan, breakfast consists of refried beans,... More

First time to visit this little gem. I live in the Rio Grande Valley and visit the island on a regular basis. Always looking for good food at a good price. My brother found this place as he spends his summers at the island. This was perfect! Got there early about 8:30am. We were served quickly and food was delicious.... More

Horrible service and super hot inside the restaurant as if a/c was broken. Place was dirty and we didn't even get chips and salsa. Had to ask our waitress for them.

This was our best choice for Mexican food while in Texas. We had Mexican combo platters that were wonderful. Fajitas were a little different than our Louisiana Mexican restaurants. Small, economical, and very good.

We just live this place. It's small, quaint and the food is just simply amazing and it's very reasonably priced. It worth the drive from the island to come here and try it out. The staff is very friendly and accommodating too.

went to the restaurant on someone's recommendation and was really pleased. Had to ask for a particular special (fish and shrimp) but it was fantastic and the food was hot and tasty. The staff was great and was very accommodating. Would go back again in a minute. At there once before for breakfast which was also very good.

I had a breakfast burrito and French Toast. Both were excellent. The price and service are hard to beat as well. If yo like a good Tex-Mex breakfast, you have to try this place.
