Food was awesome and waitress did a great job. I had not eaten there since I was a kid in 1976. Thank you for continuing great food and service.

Worst food I had been served in years. The #3 special was horrible. And my husband's quesadilla was just as bad. $20 down the toilet right next to the food we were served. NEVER AGAIN!!😱😡

Very rarely do I order anything at a Tex-Mex Restaurant other than Cheese and Onion Enchiladas with Carne Sauce. This was my order at the Spanish Inn. The flavor of the Carne Sauce was unique and wonderful. The customer service was great; not intrusive but just enough engagement. The atmosphere was old school Tex-Mex, not the new and fake facades... More

Eaten here many times growing up in BS. One of my favorite places to eat--brings back family memories. Celebrated my Great Aunts 97th birthday in the party room

After having a bad experience at the Snyder, Texas location, I decided to try the Big Spring, Texas location a try. The good part was the service. It was nothing fancy, but the waitress actually filled the drinks on a regular basis. The bad part was the food. We ordered the #1 Spanish Inn special. There was a large amount... More

If you are wanting to experience tex-mex dining at it's best this is the spot!!! If your group/family wants Mexican food and you're not in the mood... NO WORRIES!!! I recommend the grilled fish or cheeseburgers. You will definitely want to come back!!!

This restaurant has been family owned and operated since the 1940's. The staff was very accommodating to special requests. Plenty of food for items ordered. Not only Mexican but American food as well.

We tried to eat at Carlos for lunch and it was closed so we came to the Spanish Inn. Glad we did. Immediately was waited on. The chips were fresh and the while the sauce was waterier, it was very zippy. The lunch special of taco and cheese enchilada was very tasty. Our friend had tamales with chili and they... More
