We stopped by here for breakfast with another couple. My wife and another ordered the plain egg with bacon, grits and toast. Both really liked it, the eggs were cooked to order and the grits were very good. The guys ordered the Heuvos Rancheros that came with bacon, hash browns and a flour tortilla. The eggs were cooked perfectly, however the presentation of the Heuvos were severely lacking. All this really amounted to was sauce poured over the top of two fried eggs. No corn tortilla underneath, no chorizo, cheese, cilantro or anything else. As stated, just two eggs with sauce poured over it. I would not call these Heuvos Racheros by any stretch. This is the sole reason I'm giving this four stars instead of five. Decent prices and good service. The post Harvey update was a blessing according to our guest. All in all a good breakfast, but don't order the so called Heuvos Rancheros. Just order a side of salsa and pour it over your eggs...

This is THE breakfast spot in Port Aransas. They will re-open, in the same spot on March 13. Very family oriented. The food is always great and the waitresses are down home friendly. Open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Be aware, it is not uncommon to have to wait for a table here. Well worth it though

We enjoyed a very tasty, very well prepared breakfast. I asked what brand of coffee they served because I believe it was the best coffee I have ever drank.
Service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere.

They have the usual things for breakfast but mostly separate and not the usual combinations. Their specials are what you want and is the only way to get and egg with meat. French Toast is average but the omelettes are very good.

Pancakes ate about 6 inches around so they are good size. Service was good but don't expect service with a smile. I am not sure the waitress has smiled in years. One special was eggs over easy and one was eggs over medium. We had to guess which was which because the waitress didn't know or seem to care. Figured it out.

All in all the food was above average but not much more.
