This restaurant is only pen for lunch and closes early.... no dinner hours.... one of the oldest restaurants in Rio Grande City.... just walking in brings me alot a flurry of memories of when my parents would take us there after church.

The menu lets you know which are customer favorites, but I really enjoyed the Salisbury Steak with hand cut fries. The staff is friendly and sometimes they'll even provide you with some dessert!

This place serves great comfort food, some of the best around. I love there enchiladas and chicken fried steak. If you're in the area its worth stopping.

Located in downtown Rio Grande City this place has the best down home cooking in town. I had the hamburger steak and with was very good. Never had it with refried beans and spanish rice before...but what do you expect. Great service and wonderful atmosphere.

This little cafe has the best, down-home, Tex-Mex cooking around. Worth the hour or so drive from McAllen, this restaurant serves truly authentic food at a very modest price. Service is good and personable
