For a quick stop they dish out the best Mexican food around. Many times we have passed by this yellow and red building and never stopped; today we did. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and bright inside. Early Saturday about 6:30 a.m. constructions workers were arriving for breakfast, service was quick. Their Breakfast Burritos $2 each, chorizo, egg, potato and cheese and carne guisada (beef & gravy) were delicious. Their enchilada plate included beans and rice (about $7). Don't forget their delicious salsa, ask for it.. both red and green.
I enjoyed a fresh lemonade but it was too sweet. Their tea is too sweet, too! Too bad they don't serve UN-sweatened tea. We didn't try their fruit flavored aqua fresca (also sweet). Everything seems to be homemade with quality ingredients; the burritos were plump, and plenty of rice & beans on the enchilada plate. From their Bakery, I ate a pastry filled with Bavarian Creme, filling was okay (pastry not tender-flaky). We left with a small bag of cookies.. nothing to rave about in taste and texture. Overall, it was a very good experience. Next time I'll try their handmade tamales.

Really good taquitos. Tried various kinds. They are quick and good. Green salsa is really good with a spicy kick.

I like their breakfast tacos, but they're nothing special. Tortillas obviously are store bought. Have had lots better and only go when the roommate insists.

Swung by here for a quick bite when leaving Abilene. Wife loved the breakfast burrito and I thoroughly enjoyed my Mexican plate. Cant beat all the food on the Mexican plate for just $7. Grab some of the baked goods on the way out.....Will definitely return!

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.
