Place looked good, we were promptly seated and brought our drinks. Hubby had a combo plate, I had fajitas. Very little seasoning on anything. Beans, rice, fajitas all almost tasteless. There was plenty of food and service was very good-wish the food was good.

The location was the only thing good about this place. Waitress was slow making her rounds, poor girl had too many tables for just her. Food tasted literally out of a can! While prices were reasonable it's just not worth your time.

Great Mexican Food at Reasonable prices. If you prefer a burger, they have a great burger including fries for $5.49.

Stopped here on the way back from an early AM jaunt to Aransas NWR. Service was a little slow, but friendly. We ordered lunch specials, and I thought they were fine but nothing special. It took quite a while for the food to be brought to us, but it was hot, so I think the problem was the kitchen rather... More

We have gone to this establishment when it was at the other place and had good service and food. They have younger staff that needs training. Customers should be greeted within 5 minutes of arrival, chips/salsa and then drinks and food.

I had the Chili Relleno and my wife had the Guadalajara lunch. Really helpful friendly folks. Very good service. I'm grateful the waitress warned me when she brought me the green salsa. Killer hot. The food was not as flavorful as we typically expect from Mexican in Texas. Maybe more authentic Mexican as opposed to Tex-Mex?

I stopped in just to get a refreshment from the Rockport Beach and am very happy to report the frozen margaritas are excellent and the salsa is HOT! It's the first restaurant I have visited in the area and would gladly stop in again simply because the prices are very good for the quality.
