WE have ben here about 20 times.Service is fairly good.Recipes are great-especially the "carne el pastor"plate.The servings are really big.My few complaints are that the food is often excessively salty.I have told the management this multiple times,but nothing changes.The other problem is that of the last 4 times I was there,they were comletely out of the pastor(pork chunks in sauce)plate...

I grab breakfast tacos here a few times a month for co workers. They are open early and easy to go through the drive through before work. Friendly staff and speedy service. And best of all: delicious breakfast tacos!

Really enjoyed it. A definite place to come back to if we go back to CC again. It's real simple mexican food, nothing fancy. Just good food.

Great place to start your day on North Padre Island! Nothing like generously portioned cheek meat or chorizo with refried beans, fried potatoes, and a couple of fried-your-way eggs to get your morning going! You should really wrap all of the above in your flour tortillas and top with a little green chili sauce! Delicioso!

We stopped in for dinner last night with our daughter and son. The restaurant is clean enough, the service was good enough, the prices seemed a little high (but then it is out on the Padre Island). The food was okay, but was pretty average by my standards. Plates come with a puddle of beans and a pile of rice... More

Great food and great service. Everything is authentic Mexican from the chips and salsa to the entrees and drinks. My Margarita was perfect! Fajitas were very good and the guac was fresh and tasty!
