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

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

Never can go wrong with Taqueria especially this one. Food is always great and the staff including the manager make sure you have your food in a timely fashion, especially when there's a large group of people... Breakfast is also great!!!!
