This is the best Taco place in Brownsville. Small taquitos, order six usually with a side of beans ala charro. Bisteak (sirloin), pastor (seasoned pork), tripas ( intestines). Also flautas and tostadas. Great quick meal.

Best tacos in town! This place is very casual. No need to dress up. If you are seeking out authentic Tacos de Bistek with the works (white cheese, cilantro and grilled onions) this is the place. Good service and food is ready in minutes.

I don't give a lot of 5 star reviews as probably most do not. There is just nothing to say negative. The menu is simple and the food is great. The tacos are as tasty as they get, the charro beans are money. I love the food here. There is some solid competition in town and they are some that... More

We were looking for a authentic meal. This restaurant was a nice small restaurant with really good food for a reasonable price. This restaurant had only four items on the menu however every one tasted excellent. Every item on the menu was between 4.50 - 5 dollars like 4 tacos for 4.75. Again, very good flavor for a good price

I didnt know what a real street taco was supposed to taste like until I ate here. Who cares how the place looks when it tastes that good.

I have eaten tacos everywhere and El Ultimo Taco is literally el ultimo taco that you will ever go out and eat from! They're so good, taste and presentation, its always full of people but you can eat outside at the padio area and if not wait to be seated inside, its worth the wait. Hands down, the freshest food...

Best tacos ever! The wait can be a tad long, but it's well worth it! Very casual dining indoors and has outside patio.
