We have eaten breakfast, lunch and dinner. All great Tex-Mex meals. Some the place gets crowded because food is that good. Also has drive up.

The breakfast tacos are always fantastic! They are large, so order accordingly. Expect a wait for a table and your food on a weekend....just enjoy the time with your family or friends.

Breakfast tacos are some of the best in town and always good. Dinner however is starting to show establishment is cutting corners on quality and ingredients. I only go there for breakfast now. Too bad as dinner used to be real good.

Nice menu but the Mexican food is the best, sometimes hard to find a parking space but worth the hassle. Great for breakfast tacos either there or takeout

Good Mexican food at a fair price. They are sometimes short staffed, causing a delay in service, but everyone is friendly. The food is good.

Just look around at the crowd in the Bandera Road Cafe and you will know the food must be really good, real Mexican food! The sumptuous breakfasts fill two plates...eggs, bacon, beans, tortillas, pancakes! Also, several varieties of Mexican breakfasts, then on to the huge...More
