It may look like a hole in the walll on main street, but the food makes it a place you don't want to miss. A lot of the locals don't even remember that it is there, but once you go, you will go again and again. They open early so it is a great place for breakfast. They close at... More

After driving past this place for years since we moved here, we decided to stop for breakfast. This place reminds one of a coffee shop of old with the long counter with stools along the one side and a few booths along the other. It was very clean and well kept. I felt as if we had stepped back in... More

I love this place! It's like stepping back in time. I sat at the counter, and watched the cook, waitress and dishwasher working behind the counter. I asked, "I've never been here. What can I order that would make me want to come back for lunch every day?" The cook replied, "Everything!" I ordered Migas - perfectly prepared. Waitress very... More

I heard the hamburgers and fries were good - I very disappointed. I was expecting homemade beef patties is this quaint looking little place, but instead got a frozen patty burger that was horrible, and it costs $7. The fries were no good either. They charge $2.50 for a 12 oz can of coke!!!!!!!!!! I complained about this being the... More

Had a nice potato and egg taco. Very good with home made tortilla and you can watch from the counter as they make your food. Despite the big vintage decal on the window they don't have Ice Cream and make sure and hit an ATM at one of the banks up the street because they only take cash.

Nice cafe with plenty of counter space. Nice staff. Good breakfast tacos. I had the Marty's Deluxe. They don't take credit cards so be sure to bring cash.

I've only had their breakfast tacos but I love them! Marty tacos all the way! It's great to see the ladies chopping up onions, potatoes, jalapenos, etc right in front of you to make the perfect fresh tacos. It's def a little run day location but you can tell it used to have charm. The staff is friendly and you... More

Cute small little cafe right on Main Street. We went there for breakfast and were one of two tables they were serving. The food was pretty typical for del rio and the prices were good. You can tell this place has some history.
