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

Lived in Portland about twenty years ago. This place had just opened when we lived there. It was a favorite spot to stop and get breakfast tacos. They are very generous portions and serve great salsas to compliment them. We are temporarily living in Rockport and went in to Corpus but took the chance to stop by for lunch. So... More

1st thing i will say is it is Drive-Through only, so just realize is not a place to sit and eat. Being from San Antonio I have a high standard for tacos; tortillas must be fresh, light and soft and the food needs to be adequately seasoned and fresh. That said it gets a 4 out of 5! The tortillas... More
