Great for traditional Mexican food. Combo #2 plate is a must. Chips and pico are tasty. Not a fan of salsa, but many people love it.

This place is the real deal. It isn't fancy... it is rough around the edges. It's across the tracks from a factory that shut down and isn't in the "good" part of town... all things that should have long ago put it out of business....More

Looks like a hole in the wall but has awesome, authentic Mexican food. Real Mexican - not Tex-Mex. Generous portions - open breakfast, lunch and dinner. We visit Lufkin once in a while and each time eat here more several times each visit.
