Went here for a quick breakfast and was really impressed! The breakfast tacos were simply amazing and were on some of the best tortillas I've had since my Grandma passed away! Truly has that homemade taste. The prices were really cheap, the food outstanding and though there was a significant line, it moved really quickly. Headed back there this morning,... More

I've been going here since 2005 and the prices haven't changed much at all. The people are always friendly and he food is always good. If there is a line it moves fast.

Authentic, good prices, and large portions. There's almost always a line but it goes quick. Breakfast tacos or lunch tacos and a few other options available.

These are the breakfast tacos I grew up on in the Rio Grande Valley - in restaurants and at my grandmothers' table. The fresh handmade flour tortillas somehow manage to duplicate the "made-with-love" flavor. The ingredients are cooked together and ready to accompany refried beans in your tacos. The ladies assembling the orders are all native Spanish-speakers. My grandmothers were... More

We visited this location this morning for breakfast. The tacos are made in front of you, as you pick your ingredients. The staff is friendly and efficient, so don't let the line intimidate you, as the tacos are worth the wait. There is not much of a sitting area, but they make your tacos easy to take on the go,...

I was pleased to find this place on the way to the convention center from my hotel. There is a line early in the morning, but it moves fast and the tacos are good. They have lots of options and the service is friendly. I especially liked the eggs a la mexicana and the green salsa.

I brought several friends from out of town to Brothers Taco House on our way to Bush airport. One of them called the Chincharron taco with friojes, "the best pigs foot taco I've ever had". The lengua, mole and spicy beef tacos are excellent as well. They travel well - a much better option than anything offered at the airport.

I visit here often and always take visitors from out of town for breakfast at least once during their visit. The prices are excellent! The quality of food & service is superb! There are lots of choices, and it is always busy. You have to stand in quite a line, but it moves quickly. The line is just a testament... More
