Our favorite place to eat every time we go to the coast. Always great food with good service. Good chips and salsa. I have never been disappointed here. I personally have been eating here for 21 years

This place is a local favorite. We have eaten there in the past, but were turned off when we saw bugs. We decided to give it another try. The place is still not very clean, but the food is still good. Personally, I just can't get past the look of the restaurant. Maybe you could order your food to go.... More

This is the best Mexican restaurant around. Been eating here forever, seriously, since before 1993. Best breakfast, too.

Most popular is the Jalisco Burrito. It's HUGE and very inexpensive! I get that about 7 out of 10 times and so does almost everyone I know! The fajitas are good, the beans and rice are good, the enchiladas are good... you just can't go wrong!

I have eaten here about once a week if not more since I have moved to Texas City... 12 years ago. It's safe to say that in that time I have learned why this place probably considered Texas City's number one restaurant. Low prices, generous portions of good food. The Jalisco Burrito has to be number one. Like all restaurant... More
