If you pass by this place you will probably never think that this is a great place to get tacos. It does not look like much from the outside but looks can be deceiving. This small Mexican market has great food, especially breakfast tacos. The tacos are filling and reasonably priced. Don't let the outside fool you stop and try... More

Stopped for breakfast and there are about 20 tables in this market / restaurant. The service was fast - prices were reasonable. Food was average.

This place is my personal benchmark for what Mexican food should be. Take note that I have not been to mexico and my previous experience of mexican food is much "Filipinized" since I am from the Philippines. But... take away all the authentic mexican food, it is still worth coming here just for the CHICHARONES!!! At USD7.99 a pound this... More

Easy to find, ample room to entertain a group or just a few. If you're looking for a five-star resturant this is not the place. If your looking for where the locales eat you've found the right place. Was greeted by a delightful waitress who recommended different dishes and took our order flawlessly. The meal was served promptly, tasty and... More

Every time I come to Galveston El Mercado is a must stop. Their chorizo con huevo tacos, their carnitas tortas and their fresh drinks are always a good start after a night of Galveston style fiesta.

This is a market and restaurant with fantastic breakfast. I ordered a #5 and was not completely sure what I was getting. It was delicious; scrambled eggs with bacon and potatoe cubes and fresh made flour tortillas. The salsa on the side was tasty but not too hot. Many friends/family/regulars came in and were welcomed with warm words from employees.

I'm not sure I'm the best judge of "authentic Mexican" food but it sure seemed authentic to me. I got a combination platter and horchata. Waitress spoke little English, there was a constant stream of Mexican/Latino looking working men coming and going for take out. The place is kind of a dingy hole in the wall with simple tables and...

This place really is a whole in the wall that is very easy to miss or mistake for a small grocery store… which is actually is as well! But make no mistake, this is some authentic Mexican (and possibly Ecuadoran) cuisine. To start we ordered the chili con queso thinking it was chili. It wasn’t. It’s a moderately spicy cheese...

My dad and i go so often, we call it "the kitchen" We usually go for breakfast, although any thing you get is delicious. :)
