Let me begin by saying that we are well traveled and are restaurant people. We can be quite picky about food as we are both closet gourmets. While in Corpus Christi on vacation and having already done four days of fine dining, we both decided a good Tex-Mex dinner sounded good. I am not a huge "authentic" fan but love the Tex-Mex. We were told about Jaimes and went there. We pulled into a very busy parking lot..(a good sign at 4pm) to an odd looking building with a huge concrete rooster in front of it. I must say i was a bit nervous but upon entering this very cozy and spacious eatery the smells of good food comforted me. Our server Noe` immediately came to our table with a smile and brought drinks and chips with incredible salsa. We ordered the table side Guacamole and again a smiling and very friendly Noe` prepared the delicious Gaucamole right in front of us. Picture a huge bowl of the freshest Guacamole you have ever had...for 7.99!!! Then it was on to dinner. Tough choices but we ordered chicken enchiladas and a Carne Asada burrito. The chicken in the enchiladas was very well seasoned and moist and delicious. The Carne Asada was also incredibly tender and delicious. Great food and all for 32.50 with drinks and the Guacamole appetizer. This was as fine a Tex Mex dinner that i had ever had and i lived in Texas for five years. The waiter Noe` who us a student at Texas A&M was a pleasure to have and i would recommend requesting him if you go there. I hope his employers appreciate him as much as we did. Thank you Noe and Jaimes!!! David and Martha M

I do not know but seems like a family business, everyone tries to ensure you are satisfied. One visit we had sample appetizer which was perfect for a light meal for 2. Next visit was Chile Rellano and fajita nachos both of which were well portioned and great. Will go back for a 3rd visit.

They make fresh guacamole at the table, use boneless chicken, and great service. Decent prices and not dirty, very clean, and waiters and waitresses are dressed and serve very professionally. The food is so good here.

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!
