Fast and good Mexican food. They have tacos and food plates. The two drive throughs on either side speed up the process.

There's a reason this place is HOPPING all the time - there isn't a bad choice on the menu. And for those of you who haven't discovered this little tidbit - they have TWO drive-up windows - one off Railroad Ave (the front of the restaurant), the other, off Broadway (the back). You can also park your vehicle and order... More

You seriously can't find better breakfast tacos than here! Reasonably priced! They also offer lunch plates which are reasonably priced also! If you're driving through Portland, TX stop here to get tacos for breakfast or order some to eat the next morning! Their lemonade is also very good!

I've been coming here regularly, almost daily, for some time now. Their service and quality is consistently great! Don't be alarmed by the long lines during the morning rush hour, they move people through pretty quickly and I've never gotten the wrong order.

My family eats here 3 times a week. Love their breakfast tacos. Lunch is also good and may be served with breakfast. It's drive thru or walk up window. Try the machado taco. Enjoy

We have been here a few times. The food is really good. The only thing we did not like was the cheese sauce which was just cheese not queso. I would recommend eating here.

We found this place on TA too late and missed our turn. It was an easy 5 minutes fix and were we glad! This was our first visit and it was outstanding. We came at 11:00 on Sunday and they were packed. The line for the drive through was out on the road. We parked our RV on the side... More

This is our favorite weekend place to drive through and pick up Taquito breakfast! We love that they can fix those (or their bigger Burritos) every which way to Sunday. Our favorites are Sausage & Egg or maybe Chorizo & Egg, or even Migas & Egg! Portions are generous, the tortillas are always fresh as are the eggs. Definitely recommended!

This is a very small drive thru window only. There are several outside cement tables and a walk- up window. That being said. ...the breakfast tacos and burritos are out of this world. If you don't mind taking back home/hotel to eat...or pulling over to eat in car...you must try the breakfast menu. Be forewarned the cars line up on... More
