We had some good enchiladas, decent chile relleno and excellent beer: Negra Modelo. The price was reasonable in an expensive town.

We wanted a "full breakfast" and our hotel recommended Mando's in Marfa, Texas. It was terrible. The scrambled eggs tasted were so chopped on the grill that it looked like gravel, the taste had a hint of fish - cooked on a dirty grill. The...More

This place was recommended for Mexican food. I got fajitas, it was more peppers than meat. Not what I'm used to for sure! Partner got a cheeseburger, the cheese was on the bottom bun instead of on top of the burger...both were actually better as...More

A bit different from our San Antonio Tex-Mex, but very good food and service. We had lunch and breakfast and enjoyed both. Large portions and cold beer!

Good Mexican food. Didn't try burgers but they also looked good. Definitely a place for locals. Everyone seemed to know each other. Families, couples, a nun, a border patrol officer, Anglos and Hispanics. Fried pickles were great. Not a lot of choice on the beverage...More

Mando's doesn't look like much from the outside, but very cool place to eat. Tables are set up where you might sit with others if you'd like. Food is excellent... we opted for mexican food, but the hamburger steaks, etc. looked delicious. Plenty of food,...More
