The parking lot is always full which usually means the food is good. While the decor left me thinking I may have made a mistake, the food was delicious and the menu reasonably priced. As it becomes harder for locals to find a place for lunch for under $10 places like this will get my attention....and my business.

Ate here due to the reviews on trip advisor. The tortilla chips were very greasy and you could taste that the grease was old. The sauce served with them was not salsa, more like an enchilada sauce, but it tasted fine. The food was okay, greasy and my barbacoa tasted old. My husbands steak fajitas tasted off as well so...

I am so glad we found this place! Cheap, good authentic, Mexican food can't be beat. The place is a dive and easy to miss if you aren't looking for it, but it's worth finding. My kids and I went for breakfast before going to Schlitterbahn and had 2 ENORMOUS breakfast burritos, 5 tacos and coffee for 20 bucks! We... More

Our group of 8 had breakfast. Friendly service. Home made salsa is very good,. Owners are from Vera Cruz and you'll find this influence in the food and especially the salsa(rather than Tex-Mex).

I love a good breakfast taco in the morning but on this day a full meal was needed so I ordered the Juevos a la Mexicana. The eggs are cooked with onions and tomatoes. The plate comes with beans and a slice of thick bacon. The server asked if I preferred corn or flour tortillas and I ordered flour. She... More

A small restaurant that seems to be breakfast/lunch. Food was good but not much different from other places. Service was average. Atmosphere is early Formica. I'm still looking for the best Mexican on the island.

First off, let me begin by saying their homemade hot sauce is ordered in 32 oz portions in my home, it's fantastic. I've had their shrimp tacos, barbacoa, carne asada, quesadillas, enchiladas, and I can't remember what else BUT my advice is this: they serve their tacos plain so you need to ask for your pico de gallo, sour cream,...

This place served AMAZING authentic mexican breakfast! Located in a very small facility, quite "homey" atmosphere; this is perfect place!! The ranchero sauce was homemade. The migas were delicious! But the Los Primos plate for breakfast is a MUST HAVE! Consists of steak 2 ranchero eggs and potatoes! We will definitely be back during our next stay in Galveston!!!!

We've eaten here three times now, and the food is awesome. They are open only for breakfast and lunch, from 7am to 2:30pm. Breakfast burritos are delicious, with homemade tortillas. We had Chile Rellenos for lunch and those were great, too. Sloppy refried beans and really good rice. Oh, the guacamole is perfect, just like we make at home. So... More

You have to look to find this tiny restaurant. Not a touristy place. Operated by a local family. They serve breakfast (7:00 am - 11:00 am) and lunch ("from 11:00 am"). We stopped by on a whim to try breakfast. The service was very friendly and punctual. We had scrambled eggs. The quality and presentation were close to perfect. The... More
