We eat here at least once every week and the food is tasty, prices are reasonable, and the service is fast and friendly. Highy recommend the cheese enchiladas a la carte and charro beans.

Always come here when in town. Food always taste great and service is usually quick. Wait for a table is sometimes long due to the popularity of place. Barbacoa, menudo, and my wifes favorite fish tacos are good things to try, and everything ive tried is great. Serves alcohol as well. Ask for the guacamole sauce my favorite.

I've passed by this place so many times over the years and finally I decided to stop in. It is always packed and so I gave this a try for lunch. I went through the drive through so I can't say how it is inside as far as decor, service, or other things. I ordered the #4 which is the... More

We searched this place out on our return trip to Corpus. stellar food. Authentic to the core. You won't leave hungry or disappointed. Wait staff very friendly! You may go to the big name restaurants, but this one shouldn't get missed.

First time there, ordered the #4 plate. The cheese enchiladas had no sauce just covered in cheese, that was by far the worst dish, the beans and homemade corn tortillas were excellent, the rice was ok and the carnita taco was just ok also with some of the meats overcooked and tough.
