Fresh, plenty of salsa and chips plate was full with rice and beans, tacos, enchiladas, and guacamole (Plus fresh homemade tortillas) and lemonade refreshing for a hot day in South Texas. Coffee is served with a full menu 24 hours a day by anyone's clock. Americana is available... More

Greeted and asked to sit wherever would like. The prices are great and very affordable. Ticket for 2 was under $20. We had ice tea, chips and salsa, fresh guacamole, gorditas with picadillo and carne guisada and flan. Server was excellent. Very friendly place and would definitely return. This is coffee shop #4, right before you turn right on southmost.

I've been going to Brownsville Coffee Shop since I was a teen. It never disappoints! Homemade Mexican food with some of the best flour tortillas you will ever eat. And the price is always right! Open 24 hours too.

Took us a while to find this place but it was worth the wait. Authentic food. Very friendly staff. It felt like we were in Mexico. Very true to the culture. Ordered a bunch of good and everything was great. The price was very reasonable too.

Good food in old fashioned diner/family restaurant atmosphere. Tortilla menu alone is worth the visit. A must see on any visit to Brownsville.

The breakfast special is inexpensive, very filling, and a great... More
