Food is wonderful always, service is poor in the evenings, but great at lunch. Prices recently increased, which is kind of irritating, but one of the best Mexican restaurants in Corpus Christi.

I usually order to-go. The menudo is great. My family loves the breakfast tacos. For breakfast I like to order the Chilaquiles verdes and I usally get them to add chicken to it. For lunch you can't beat the beef quesadilla plate.
