The service is good and they are quick? Food, not so much... Expected more flavor and no different than any other Mexican restaurant, beans and rice and cheese enchiladas. You can take their menu and apply it to any other Mexican Restaurant. We were hoping for authentic, family style food. Chips and salsa, same...

Stop in for lunch and was pleasantly surprised by excellent Mexican Food and service. Their tacos are authentic, just like the ones I had in Cancun. If you are ever in the area, stop in for a treat in Mexican Style food.

My husband and I regularly eat here and especially like the Mexican tacos and enchiladas con mole! The restaurant is in a remodeled house and the food tastes like momma is making it in the kitchen!

Try the new addition on the lunch menu--I think it is #17-cheese enchilada with chili and chicken taco with fresh cilantro and avocado only $7.99 Delicious. Chips are always fresh and crisp. You can substitute Charro beans for refried for 50 cents additional. Very good Tex-Mex food.

The food is good for the price. We had a large church group come in after us and they were very loud! The place could use some remodeling was was clean. Our service could have been a little better.

Chips and hot sauce will delight you. I had 6 glasses of Sweet Tea. Lots of choices and they cooperated on switching beans and sauces. Set in a former large home across from the Jim Hogg State Park. Wonderful experience.

We were recommended to Peralta's by the owner of the blueberry farm on the other side of town. It was a great recommendation! Being from the DFW area we have a lot of great Mexican food places to choose from and this may be right up there with them! If this were closer to home I'd be a regular.

Peralta's is our favorite Mexican restaurant. The salsa always has the perfect amount of heat, and the chips are hot and fresh. From chicken-sour cream enchiladas to steak fajitas, everything always tastes great, but here recently the street tacos are a notch above! In addition, the staff is always friendly and professional.

We eat here often. Just your basic TexMex but always good. In an old house. Nothing fancy but good service and good food.
