Stopped by here for lunch today. I ordered the Mexican Plate Special (taco, tostada, enchilada, rice and beans). It came with a bowl of home made chips and salsa. It was pretty good, and the entire meal was just over $10 with a drink.

We have been coming to SPI for a number of years and somehow failed to come here before. The wait staff is absolutely wonderful! The food was served hot and there was plenty of it. I had a flour tortilla with eggs and bacon. I love flour tortilla's and this did not disappoint. Of course there was way too much... More

Quick service with a smile and good enchilada sauce and fresh salsa with warm chips. I think that they are homemade. Friendly service. Good air conditioning.

Having a home in the Island, this is by far the best breakfast at the best price. Forget the outside, come for what's inside!

Before I became a vegan I would fight a late night out with a breakfast of 3 enchiladas with a couple fried eggs on top.. just plain good Mex food. Now that I'm vegan, breakfast consists of refried beans,... More
