We took a chance and googled Mexican restaurants that serve breakfast and after driving by a couple of dicey-looking places, ended up here and I'm glad we did! Huevos Rancheros like nobody's business. Homemade tortillas as big as your plate (that's why the breakfast tacos...More

Okay, I'm partial because this was my daughter's favorite breakfast hangout when she worked as a nurse at UTMB until Hurricane Ike. We love the Surprise breakfast taco. It's huge and worth the $4. Owner Gloria is on scene and keeps things going and the...More

Friends took us here on the way to the port. The building is a hole in the wall. It's small inside so getting a table can be tricky. But once you sit down the food is amazing! Wonderful salsa and homemade flour tortillas. The food...More

True Mexican food!! The salsa was yummy and the staff was nice. Don't let the building scare you; it looks rough but the food was 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...More

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...More
