Who would have thought you could find the best cheesecake at a mexican food restaurant? Do yourself a "flavor" and order the chocolate brownie cheesecake. Made from scratch by the owner daily, if you order nothing else order this. All other items are excellent and fresh of note are the caldo talpeno and the table side guacamole. Enjoy!

This Tex-Mex Restaurant has good food and good libations. The home made guacamole and tortillas are excellent. The Big Rooster and the exterior building gives you a nice welcome. The owners work there and are extra friendly!

Senor Jaimes is a good choice for solid Tex Mex entrees for a reasonable price. The decor is somewhat eclectic, but definitely clean and comfortable. The real standout of the place is the tableside guacamole (some of the best I've had). Otherwise, the entrees come out as expected, good but not great.

First time to Corpus Christi, also first Mexican restaurant we tried. I'm not satisfied with the food, portions are not bad, but the taste and quality is not good at all. We ordered the beef fajitas... beef is dry not much taste at all. We also had the fried chicken steak, way too salty. Sorry... we really did not like it. The only thing that's good was our waiter.

My husband and I stopped by mid-afternoon. The place only had three tables occupied when we got there, so they were not busy. Unfortunately, the waiter's service was not very good. He spent more time visiting with fellow waitstaff instead of attending to our table. The atmosphere was pleasant enough but we thought the food was only mediocre and overpriced. The cheese in my enchilladas was cold and overall, the food was not very tasty. To their credit, we do have friends that really like this place.
