We had to stop in because Julia Child said this was the place to go. Be prepared to wait in line. They only take cash and there are no prices on the menu on the wall. It is fun to see all the people cooking...More

I started going to Superica back when they first opened, I think 1979. It was an old Orange Julius stand. It didn't have the porch yet, it was the old parking lot full of pot holes, that made for wobbly tables! I've been hooked ever...More

We went because we heard great things. There was a long line, which is fine if it lived up o the hype. The tacos were lukewarm at best and lacked flavor. Additionally it is cash only. There are more ch better places to grab lunch...More

The line is long but so worth the wait! Everything we ordered was amazing! For a true Texan who has grown up eating Tex-Mex this is a huge statement!

I had #17 the first time we went, #16 the second. #17 is more like an open-faced quesadilla than a stuffed chile. Tasted grand. On #17 the "marinated pork" does not sound good but is really wonderful, crispy with a sort of rub of chile....More

Great food and value translates into long lines but worth the wait! Really great food and friendly. Dine in area is help yourself and often crowded.

The hubby and I just had to try this place...we were not disappointed. From the fresh, handmade tortillas to the chunky guac-everything was delicious. We ordered the #2, #3 & #15, along with guacamole and drinks. Very reasonable prices. Try the Horchata-best I've ever had....More

My Mom really wanted to go here for her birthday. The tortillas were made to order, a huge plus, but the filling was pretty much unseasoned. The salsa was good, and very necessary, to make the tacos palatable. Overall, I’ve had much better.
