These tacos are dry, small, smothered in cheese. What are they hiding? Small, mouse-like quantities on meat. I lived in Mexico for 14 years and I can tell you that these don't resemble the test of Mexican tacos--which is a claim many lovers of this...More

Stopped by for dinner. The beans, taco, and tostado's are filling. The service was nice. The atmosphere was great. I did not think I was going to eat all of that food. Definitely a place to stop and eat.

This is the best taqueria in Brownsville. I like the tacos de bistek and the tripas doradas. Flautas are delicious and tostadas with carne desherbada are the best. The charro beans are awesome and the salsas are all really good.

Had lunch here, food was good, service was good. Small place, clean, friendly. Not a lot to choose from on menu and if you aren't Mexican or know the language you need help ordering. LOL

Won’t be back! Although the food was indeed hot, the meat was full of fat and the tortillas were sooo greasy, I couldn’t eat my food. Service was slow and it’s always so noisy. Looking for another taco place, for sure.
