Quick service with a smile and good enchilada sauce and fresh salsa with warm chips. I think that they are homemade. Friendly service. Good air conditioning.

My favorite breakfast place. The biscuits and gravy with some homemade salsa on top will stick with you well through lunch. Before I became a vegan I would fight a late night out with a breakfast of 3 enchiladas with a couple fried eggs on top.. just plain good Mex food. Now that I'm vegan, breakfast consists of refried beans,... More

First time to visit this little gem. I live in the Rio Grande Valley and visit the island on a regular basis. Always looking for good food at a good price.

Horrible service and super hot inside the restaurant as if a/c was broken. Place was dirty and we didn't even get chips and salsa. Had to ask our waitress for them.

This was our best choice for Mexican food while in Texas. We had Mexican combo platters that were wonderful. Fajitas were a little different than our Louisiana Mexican restaurants. Small, economical, and very good.
