It is the best breakfast taco's you will get any where. I will go there every other weekend to be lazy on cooking.

The breakfast tacos are a great value and always freshly prepared. I not far and I always make sure to call in my order, as they are always super busy, and a lot of people don;t realize that it is not fast food, and a line will build up in the drive thru if you go there expecting to order... More

Don't dress up - don't expect customer service. Just expect to be consistently blown away with the best Mexican food in Texas. Carne Guisada, Barbacoa, watermelon drink, lemonade, enchiladas... There is no way to describe it. Just do it. Take out only - worth a 200 mile drive. Did I mention the tacos? Guacamole? Try it and leave your own... More

This place is super busy with drive through and call ahead orders, and I understand why after breakfast! I had two breakfast tacos, chorizo and egg and brisket and egg. Each came with a side of a different salsa, and both were so good I can't say which I liked better. Nothing beats fresh tortillas. Add one more taco to... More

My husband has raved about these street tacos for months. We recently vacationed in San Antonio and made the two and a half drive down to Corpus to eat here and visit with some friends. Oh my goodness. The steak tacos are out of this world! We also had the watermelon drink--so delicious. The place is unassuming and you can... More

Fresh, thick, and oh so tasty! The migas were good, too, but those tortillas stole the show!! Fast service, family friendly, many options, they can do take out order, too.

Excuse my spelling of the dish I had but I have not had it before and am unsure if it is correct. I think it was Carne Quisada, It was large beef chunks in a very good sauce with Great guacamole and soft tacos. The sides were refried beans with cheese and rice in a tomato based sauce.The portions were... More

Huge burritos, decent price, friendly service. We asked what the most popular item was - wanting to try something interesting and new - and we got blank stares. Finally the young gal at the window said "I don't know... The tacos are good. Or the nachos. People like hamburgers too." Not a lot help there. We ordered carne asada burritos... More

Man taking orders could speak very little English. After repeating my order for chicken fajita tacos several times he acted as if it was my fault he couldn't understand. Several Hispanic customers followed with their orders and were treated friendly. To top it off, as I inquired on the status of my order, he said he had forgotten. An additional... More

Best tacos in town, a little bit off the main highway but worth it. The fajita and pork tacos are awesome. For dine in it's an outdoor place so if weather is cool bring a jacket. Also everyone was very friendly!
