“Breakfast favorite!”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

I'm not a fan of traditional breakfast food but my husband is. Great compromise! He gets chorizo and egg. My favorite is barbaco with cheese and sour cream. They have sweet tea , no unsweetened. Ask for sauce otherwise you don't get! I like that the burritos are not huge. Buy 2, yu will be glad yu did.

“An Abilene favorite”
Reviewed 20 August 2013 via mobile

I eat here weekly, and they have hands down the best breakfast burritos around. Whether its potato egg and cheese, carne guisada or barbacoa, i cant stop going back.
The salsa is absolutely perfect and the drinks are even some of the best i have has, wether it is half and half tea and lemonade or fresh cantaloupe water.
If you are in Abilene it is a mist for breakfast.

“The best carne guisada anywhere!”
Reviewed 8 July 2013

Though we've been to both locations, we usually stop at the La Popular on South 14th. The burritos are out of this world, and the BEST lemonade! I've tried carne guisada all over Texas, and this is the best! we moved from Abilene 11 years ago but every time we go back this is one of our "must haves"!

“A Must In Abilene”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 via mobile

La Popular is a staple for local Abilene residents. I love their breakfast burritos as well as their lunch burritos, their lemonade is phenomenal! If you have a chance, give them a try!

Reviewed 15 May 2013 via mobile

we love this place. Everything there is wonderful. Rich in flavor for food. Great tortillas hot sauce and refreshing aquas frescas. Services is a little slow but worth the wait.
