Locals favorite, consistently good. Typically expect wait to be seated during lunch hour. Parking at next door parking lot if main lot full. Tea is sweet so i order half sweet /half unsweet. Cheese enchiladas for me are best I've had, you can get onions & jalapenos just ask. Flour tortillas freshly made and not overly large and thin. Gentleman's... More

Just found out about this gem last week...been there twice since! Great Mexican home style restaurant with lots of $4.99 soecisls til 4pm. They've been in business 54 years and it's a very busy place...but they have lots of employees and their system down pat! I can almost guarantee will take home leftovers as the amount of food is massive!

Two of us went for lunch and had the fried fish special (which an exiting patron suggested!) Fantastic, with great sides and more than enough to eat. We will definitely go back to try some other meals. Certainly worth the 10 minute wait.

A must stop on ever trip to Harlingen. Good Food! Inexpensive with prompt service. May be a short wait but never more than 15 minutes

Excellent service, Mexican food, always delicious. If you are from the Valley and back in Harlingen for a visit, it is a must to come here for food!! It gets really busy in the evenings, so come early (5pm) for a parking place.

many people advised me this was a great place to eat. When i walked in I could smell rancid grease. I should have been warned, but we decided to eat breakfast. I had greasy sausage, hash browns and toast. The toast was saturated with the rancid oil. I paid for a breakfast that all I ate was the eggs. Thank... More

Ate here a couple of years ago. Still great. Yes you are in south Texas. The place is loud. The place crowd. The decor is fair. The place is great. You are paying for great food at a fair price. Driving around south Texas you can see the number of folks who have tried the restaurant business and failed. Here... More

Great value. Mexican food specialties like fajita, chiles rellenos, and enchiladas are some of the ones I could recommend. This place is a locals' favorite. Portions are abundant and service is good. Family atmosphere.
