A Del Rio standby for many years. Many of us remember the old building on the same site that faced the Bank and Trust but the food has never changed. Not exactly Vegan health food but it sure does qualify as Tex-Mex comfort food for...More

I will only be one time visitor to this restaurant. The people are rude and the food is nothing special. It has no flavor. My friend ordered fries only to find a wad of hair in the bottom of his container disgusting.

Went in hoping to get the good Tex-Mex and then stood in line to order with a rude person running the register and don't ask for substitutions or changes or prepare to get the evil eye. It's okay but not one that I would recommend...More

The food is great. When you walk in you order. The staff was very nice. They also have t shirts for sale. Along with other items. Seems like a popular place to eat. Much friendlier than LaHacienda.

We've eaten here twice. It's an inexpensive place to get good Mexican food. You order from a wall menu at the door as you walk in, and then they deliver the food for you. The atmosphere is fine.

The best Tex Mex food in Del Rio. I have eaten there over years of visiting Del Rio and the cooks know what they are doing. Tex Mex food is different from real Mexican food. It has it's own style and Don Marcelino does it...More

You order at a counter from a large menu on the wall with pictures of the meals. Then the food is brought to your table. I had quesadillas. Husband had lengua. Both were large portions. Average tasting Mexican food. Only complaint...his food was brought out...More
