Breakfast tacos were wonderful and large. Was disappointed the restrooms had no paper towels and no hand soap (although there were dispensers for them.) What they did have was hand sanitizer dispenser on the wall. I'm actually not even sure if the state health department...More

I am a Mexican food expert, or so I tell myself. This is a hole in the wall, and should be reviewed as such. This is definitely not the best Mexican/ Tex Mex in Texas. The salsa is fairly weak. But overall the best flavor...More
