Chuy's had a really long wait so we came here instead. They have a nice varied menu, with tex-mex and mexican fare. We ordered drinks everyone was happy with their margaritas, acapulco, beers, and michelada. Good spicy salsa, the carne asada was delicious, tacos were traditional with cilantro and onions. Very tasty.

I was in Corpus Christi for a short trip without much free time. Read about this restaurant as a "must visit" and I was NOT disappointed! Comfortable, unpretentious and delicious Tex-Mex food. It doesn't get better!

Food was very good - service was excellent. Not your usual chain food - real deal Mexican food. Drinks were good too!

We loved the food. The tortilla seemed homemade not store bought. The dining area is kind of crowded. We were a party of 12 and the crowded us on 3 small tables. But the food was worth it. They were quick with our order. If you love stuffed jalapeños wrapped in bacon they have it on the appetizer menu it... More

Wow. seriously great food at a fantastic price!! We came down here for a mini vacay/anniversary trip and found this place on Yelp. It was fairly close to our hotel, so decided to check it out, and man I'm glad we did! We were greeted warmly and seated quickly; I wonder if this must be a place with mostly locals,... More

While traveling, we tried this restaurant based on the reviews here. We were very happy with the dinner we had. Margaritas were just right. We had the Leone's plate and the pastor plate. Tortillas were homemade and both dinners were great tasting and authentic. We kept eating even though we were full because it tasted so good.

Thank DanielleB67
