The first impression was great--as I entered the door, the man behind the counter greeted us warmly, from a distance (4:30 on a Saturday afternoon, not busy). The other servers were likely friendly and helpful. The "other" first impression is the place, and yes, it's...More

Great authentic Mexican food---just like south Texas. No ambiance, but you go there for the food. Reasonable to cheap prices for what you get. Good flavors. You choose from many different meats to put into your dish. I like the spicy ones----spicy but not too...More

Pinedas is one of those places when your looking for quick cheap Mexican to-go style food. The food is good and cheap (around 10 bucks for a torta and a soda). You order at the counter and food is ready in two minutes. The only...More
