Stopped in for lunch and as soon as I looked at the menu I knew I had made a mistake. The prices are so low it was scary. We both had the plate #2 which had a beef taco, enchilada, and what they list as...More

Isabel's is a must eat when in the valley. The family run restaurant is a Port Isabel landmark and the food and service are top notch.

Good coffee, good breakfast, good prices. Yes, it very home style cooking but that's what I love about it. Chicken fried steak, add a couple of eggs, yummy. Huge tacos, huge pancakes, oh yea..

Breakfast here has always been good, but this time I was here for lunch and had their Mexican Plate. It was very good, and they have the best salsa.

The food was OK. I sampled three tacos carne guisada, bean and bacon, and chorizo and egg. The large taco is exactly that, GRANDE!

We assumed this was a cafe style restaurant, it is Mexican food though. Good food, good price. Waiter seemed a little agitated but he should have been aware it was Memorial Day weekend they'd be busy. But all in all good visit, good food.
