I usually order to-go. The menudo is great. My family loves the breakfast tacos. For breakfast I like to order the Chilaquiles verdes and I usally get them to add chicken to it. For lunch you can't beat the beef quesadilla plate.

Great place to eat for family, friends or guest. I eat here often great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They have a large menu of selections that are well prepared. Staff is friendly and courteous.

My dad and I stopped here while in town. When we asked a local business for their recommendation for a nice down home Mexican restaurant this came up immediately. So, we gave it a shot. First of all, the place seemed quite clean and staff very nice. I have their Tacos AL carbon that were quite delicious. I was served... More

My husband's goal was to have some great Mexican food and this did not disappoint! I grew up in the Bluff and it's my husband's first time here with me- we met about 10 friends here and had an excellent lunch! My taquitos were amazing! The hot sauce and chips were excellent and the tortilla soup was yummy and garnished... More

Loved that they had homemade tortillas and wonderful salsa! All of us enjoyed our meals and the steak plate I ordered was perfect. Portion sizes were spot on. Fast and friendly service and great price point. We will go there again when next in town.

Quick breakfast tacos. We had HOMEMADE corn tortillas, it was good with some barbacoa. It hit the spot heading out from the coast. Will return when back in town

It's cheap, so that's a plus. The service was good. The food, eh. Typical Mexican food. Nothing to write home about. But it wasn't bad by any means. Great place to go in a hurry and on a budget.

This place is near our son's apt. and the parking lot is always packed so when we visited he suggested we eat there. What a delight! The servers are friendly, the food is so flavorful and delicious. The four of us got different meals and all were large portions and tasted great. Reasonable prices at a good clean place.

Corpus Christi has an overwhelming number of Mexican restaurants. Each provides its own interpretation of Mexican fare. This unassuming little place is one of our favorites. The canitas special is to die for; tasty chunks of tender pork with just the right level of spice. The place is always full of people speaking Spanish, which I assume is a good... More
