Waited for the food for an hour and the manager wouldn't even come to let us know what's going on . Went to talk to her and she said that our order didn't even make to the kitchen. Very bad management.

We ate dinner here with our party of 10. We were seated in a long bench, and we were very cramped for elbow room. The food was subpar for what I was hoping for. We were all a bit disappointed.

We've eaten at many Mexican restaurants but this one doesn't measure up. The food was just so-so. Not much flavor at all. Definitely will not be on our list to return to.

We had the fajitas, tacos and oysters...all great choices. Check out their happy hour prices. The salsa is excellent!

If you want to try typical Tex-mex when on South Padre Island this is the place to go. Nothing fancy and part of a franchise of Dirty Al's. I had shrimp tacos and they were not very fresh and would expect it at the beach....More

The atmosphere was great. Salsa was a little spicy and I like a little spice in my salsa. The food was good.

Chalupa was a tostada. The beef was ok, not something I would need to have again. The chicken taco (again on a tostada) was not very good, seasonings were off. Salsa was ok, the tongue will make you feel like you've licked a torch. Good...More

This has turned out to be my fave place for Mexican food on the island. My husband joined me on this trip, and he loved it too! We were seated and greeted by a friendly staff. Our server, Daniella, was awesome. She was very attentive...More
