This lovely island surprise is located in an old light blue building on Broadway. Don't blink or you might miss it, which is apparently what a lot of Galveston visitors do.

Bronco Burritos is a small business that packs a large punch, right in your breakfast noms. The burritos are huge, well packed, and so fresh you will think they are collecting eggs from hens in the back yard.

There were a lot of work trucks parked outside, with electricians and plumbers and landscapers ordering to go, or if they had time sitting down in the tiny dining area to chomp their burritos.

My partner foodies and I all ordered variation of the Bronco Burrito, the restaurant's signature menu item. The Bronco normally has 2 eggs, potatoes, bacon, cheese, refried beans and chorizo. Not a small meal. You may customize it a bit, including things like wheat tortillas, all egg whites, and additional veggies. They also offer burritos with barbacoa, carne guisada, machacado, and migas.

Burritos aren't the only items on the menu at Bronco. The have a variety of breakfast plates including machacado, pork chops and tamales. The tamales a la carte or on my hit list for our next visit.

Each order is accompanied by a little pot of salsa. Watch out for this. It's a bit warm for my tastes, but I like spicy salsas. It's brownish with lots of tomatillo. The heat seems to be mostly from jalapenos, but there could be something more.

This place get a definite thumbs up, and revisits as often as possible. Remember, however, that they are closed on Sunday.

You will not believe the Bronco Buritto. So good it is worth the wait. May have a line but goes pretty quickly. Eat in or take out. Family business that really knows Mexican food!
