I suggested we try this place since it had been years since my last visit. All plates were delicious. My boyfriend thanked me for choosing this restaurant. We definitely will be returning. Can't wait to have breakfast!

Looks can be deceiving. This place looks old on the out side and the inside could use some updating but it's clean and the food is great! What more do you need. Way better than the Mexican place just down the road!

I don't have one complaint about the food. Chips and salsa tasted fresh and homemade. Our entrees were very good, and while this place does look dirty and like a dive, the food was great! Will eat here again.

This is the only place to go for good Mexican food, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Reasonably priced, daily specials. Homemade flour and corn tortillas. Not so at some other places down the road.

There were lots of cars in the parking lot every time we drove by this place on two trips to Rockport this summer, but we always hesitated eating there because it is not the most visually appealing place. Our family did decide to eat there...More
