First of all you get your own chops and warm salsa. I love that. Great friendly waitress's. Good food served pretty fast. Love the frozen mug the bring your ice tea in. This is the hidden food gem in Thibodaux. I highly recommend you give them a try.

I ordered the regular burrito. Rice, bean, meat. Rice was hard, beans were thick like clay and meat wasn't even recognizable! No go again!

I eat here all of the time. It is truly awesome! I love their enchiladas, and i love their queso. They have a lot to offer. I also like their taco soup, and their taco salad is pretty good.

I order the low carb special (steamed veggies, pico de gallo, grilled meat). The Burrito El Rey is great. The pork dishes are all authentic and delicious.

This isn't JUST the best Mexican food in Thibodaux, its great Mexican in general & definitely the best I've had anywhere in the South. I'm from San Diego, CA, my best friend is a chef from Mexico, believe me, I know Mexican food.

This is hands-down the best Mexican food in Thibodaux. It is a very small, hole in the wall type atmosphere with limited seating. The food is authentic and worth the visit! Will be returning!
