We where looking for lunch and notice the sign on the highway. Stop in pretty good Tex-Mex. I had the Jardin plate, enough to share. Service was very good. Would recommend this one if your in Hearn. Enjoy

I ordered the half nachos for $7.00. I got 5 soggy Tostito chips with little toppings. The drinks are canned or bottles only so you have to pay $2 a can for soda. So don't come thirsty. A lot of the stuff is microwaved and overpriced. I will never eat here again. Amigos is just up the road and will... More

Ate here with a group of 20+ bikers in late April 2015. We showed up for lunch unannounced, but were quickly seated in a separate dining area where our orders were efficiently filled with the food arriving in a timely manner. The food was great and the menu had all the "usual suspects" you expect to see in a Texas... More

Great chips & salsa, and food, not to mention, very friendly service. We all had something different, and everyone enjoyed their choice. We will definitely stop again when we're going through Hearne.

Maria's El Alamo in Hearne, Texas, consistently delivers good Mexican food. The service is friendly and efficient and there is usually sufficient parking on the streets near the restaurant. When in Hearne, you can't find a better place to eat.

Really worth a stop in Hearne. Deliciously crisp puffy corn chips. Hot hot sauce. We had the cheese enchiladas and there was not a trace left on our plates. Only regret is they longer make sopapillas.

When I asked the waitress for a recommendation, she told me I was in for quite a treat because everything was homemade and fresh. She wasn't kidding. The food was delicious! Chips, tortillas, queso and salsa... all amazing. I ordered fajitas and it was the best Mexican/Tex-Mex food I have had in two years. If you are within 100 miles... More

El Alamo is a small restaurant tucked away in downtown Hearne, TX, so unless you are going to it, you probably don't even know it is there. It is locally owned and has been in business since the 7o's I believe. The staff is friendly and most helpful. Mary Alamo, the owner is there most of the time and she... More

Ever get tired of Chain style MExican food??? I do! I had heard about El Alamo from some folks but kept missing it when passing through Hearne since it does not sit right on SH 6. This trip I drove the 3 blocks off SH 6 to get to it and boy was I glad I did!!! All of the... More
