This is a great little Mexican eatery. I have only been for breakfast on the weekends. I always get a breakfast burrito (great value and are huge!: I take half home for later). Also, they serve amazing giant pancakes that are not on the menu... you just have to ask for them! Barbacoa is also delicious! Coffee is decent. Generally very busy on weekend mornings, but table turnover is pretty fast so you don't have to wait long.
I do find the language barrier difficult at times, most people working here speak little English. However the menu is in English and pointing to the option you want is sufficient. I have never had problems with food coming out wrong.
Definitely recommend this place!

My family loves this place. The surprise taco which is more like the size of a burrito is good. Have been there many times and it's consistently good.

The building doesn't look like much but, don't be fooled. We ate here on a Sunday morning. Pleased with everything at the table. I got the Sunshine Giant Burrito and it was delicious. Best homemade tortillas I've ever had. Try to get there before 10:00 am or it will be crowded.

Service is still good but the cleanliness of the restaurant has really gone down hill. It is located in an old building across the stree from Galveston city hall and was good about 3 years ago but we all know time marches on.

Like others here, we've been eating here over ten years. Had breakfast there yesterday morning; huge breakfast burritos all around. They tasted fresh, came out hot, and the tortillas were soft and fresh as well. Service was good. The place is a dive, so don't expect much in the way of atmosphere.
