“Great Food and Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

When in Presidio in the past I have been disappointed in the choice of restaurants. Not anymore, this place was great. Food was excellent and the service was great as the girls were very friendly. Be sure and try the homemade hot sauce, but be warned it is hot! Don't let the exterior of the place stop you, nice, clean and friendly inside.

“Heartwarming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2014

Dont miss it if you pass by Presidio. I would even recommend to plan adequately and pass by Presidio before 3pm to be sure not to miss it! Very welcoming and friendly staff and very very good food. We had the Maria's salad and the chicken burrito (spicy!!!) kids loved their grilled cheese with pasta salad. And the whole family just loved the tridelicious cake.

“Don't miss this one.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

The best restaurant we visited during our 4 day tour of the Big Bend area. Don't be put off by the location and outside appearance. Very friendly staff and good food at reasonable prices. Don't miss the hand cut fries. Just like mom used to make..

“A great lunch with smiling staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

If you find yourself in out of the way Presidio TX be sure to stop at the Enlightened Bean for lunch or breakfast. The ladies are super friendly and the food is great. Do not be dissuaded by the outside appearance of the place.

“Oasis of yumminess in the desert”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

This was one of the best meals we had on our West Texas Spring Break trip. Really friendly people served us Maria's Salad and the club sandwich which was just what we needed for our mid-day meal. If you are passing through Presidio, make sure to save your hunger to have it satisfied at this place.
