Busy, clean, great food, very fast, very polite and efficient servers and wait staff. Reasonable priced. Steaks were cooked to perfection, and very tasty and tender.

Went here for lunch and it was so great! The owner was seating everyone and worked very hard to find tables for everyone...and his friendliness was contagious! All of the staff must LOVE working there as I experienced a very happy staff. We got the special which was fried shrimp. It also came with zucchini...which I was a little dubious... More

Visited when they had part of the parking lot enclosed for Oktoberfest, but I've been there other times as well. The food is always good, though this time was mainly for drinks. They had a few different beers available for the occasion. Space was at a premium, which is usually the case because it is a smaller venue and very... More

While during my stay in Brownsville, this was recommended by some of my in-laws. We had the ceviche and the nachos. Both were very good and I would recommend trying them. The atmosphere is what I would picture the stereotypical restaurant in Texas to look like on television so when I walked in I was a bit nervous that it... More

Family oriented restaurant. All of their food's amazing. Good service. It's also a great place for Happy Hour. If you visit the NACHOS are a must!

My wife and I went here based on the reviews from this site. We were looking for Mexican food and to be honest we weren't that impressed. The food wasn't bad just wasn't the best Mexican we've had. One thing I will give it credit for it has an interesting history and wide variety of food. It was very busy... More

Everything we've had here is excellent but the enchiladas are fantastic! They have a fresh corn tortilla taste and smooth creamy cheese filling and then smothered with their very own chili! Get them chopped with onions for extra yummyness. The fried shrimp is delicious too! Our table also had nachos, onion rings and chopped steak and everything was wonderful! The... More

I am glad that we made reservations on a Saturday night as the place was really busy. My wife had the fish tacos and I had the Veracruz Snapper. This was one of the best all time fish dishes I have ever eaten. The fish was perfectly prepared in a tomato sauce and the various sides of re-fried beans, guacamole,... More
