Inexpensive place to eat lonches de ternera. The place is a hole in the wall. But the lonches are good.

Lonches de Ternera, Jamon or Hamburgers. Those are your options. Add a flavored Jarritos to that. Delicious sandwiches, fresh bread, great prices. Fast and friendly service.This is a popular place for the locals. Will definitely come back.

Came to Laredo to watch high school football game from San Antonio. Happened upon restaurant. Nothing fancy but great burger on a great homemade bun. 2.50 a burger! Can't go wrong with that kind of price.

I had a great hamburger here, and my friend swears by their lonches... he's been back over and over again and can't stop- it's like he's addicted to their food. Everything is cheap but really good!
