We ate at the Treadaway location and I thought their guisada, pork tamales and flour tortillas were really very good. Enough so that I picked up more to go to bring home to my hubby and he enjoyed it as well.

I've eaten at la popular many times the last 25 years. The burritos have consistenl gotten smaller and more expensive. The quality has declined to a point I will not return.

A friend had recommended the place but it was a terrible disappointment: no longer made the tamales listed on the menu, no chicken tacos or enchiladas, no cup of ice water available.

This restaurant deserves rave reviews. Breakfast burritos are out of this world delicious. The ice tea tastes fresh and the prices won't break you. I picked up some tortillas for later and the joy continued.

This cafe had a hive selection of cakes, I loved the vanilla filed cakes. The burritos are a speciality, the beef and potato one was one of my favourites. Friendly staff and a good cup of coffee.

We always make a stop here when we're in Abilene, but this time it just didn't seem as good. I usually love their bacon, egg, and potato breakfast burritos, but the one I had this time was totally bland. It was a very cold, very rainy day in Abilene, and the restaurant had their air conditioning on, so we all... More
