We've been twice for dinner and once for breakfast. Very good each time. Good service. For breakfast I had Migas a la Mexicano with corn tortillas. Excellent. The corn tortillas were nice and soft and very flavorful. My wife had a more traditional American breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes. She liked it. Large portions.

Ate there with two others and received good service and good food. I generally eat there when I come in with others after being out in the field for birding/photography.

Hesitate to tell you all how much we enjoy this place or it will get busy we won't get in! Very nice atmosphere, great food, reasonable prices. We go every time we are i Alamo.

The hamburger steak Monday special is very good. Comes with a small salad, baked potato, and Texas toast. This is one of our favorites. The service is great. Go early as the place tends to fill up around 6 pm.

Went for lunch with my Parents - they had the special and I had the Cheese Enchilada plate. The house made chips and salsa were outstanding and the enchiladas were very good. I would definitely visit again if I find myself driving through Alama.

This has been a favorite of ours for some years The food is always good but was somewhat dated. Went in there last week and the place looks great! Carpet is out and the walls have a nice brick design on them. Back to being one of my favorite places for my family! My family likes the fajitas I'm sold... More
