Absolute best Mexican food on the coast. We drove from Ocean Springs for dinner and had a tremendous meal and experience. Tony makes some terrific margaritas. We will definitely return very soon.

It took a moment to be sat and once we were sat we felt like we had been forgotten. Out waiter decided to take another table so we ended up being served by either the cook or dishwasher. It was greatly appreciated but definitely a let down. We ended up getting the Flautas for an appetizer and it was very highly disappointing. The chicken was disgustingly dry and hard to chew. I got the chicken enchilada and ended up pulling the chicken out entirely and just ate the wrap, beans, rice, and veggies on the plate. My husband was also disappointed for the same reason. The flavor was there but it was just highly disappointing. We will try it again another time and much earlier in the day. Just very sad.

I have been coming here since before Martha bought the place and before Tony came up from Mexico. Martha was a waitress and bought the place from the current owner and while the place was good before it just got better and better. Funny, my favorite dish is simply their bean burrito! They do something to the beans that make them out of this world! My husband proposed to me here - we now live in Mobile but we come over every now and then for dinner. It is worth the trip!

I've been coming here for lunch for a couple years now and it's always fantastic. A cozy hole-in-the-wall place that really makes you feel at home. Tony is very friendly and accommodating. The food is authentic and the best around. The spicy food is spicy and I personally believe they have the best sweet tea on the Gulf Coast. I would come back for the tea alone.

Tony was friendly the food is the best Mexican food in Gulfport. The salsa is my kind of spicy. Since my first visit was take out I reserved my review to 4 stars. Which I will most likely change when I dine in.

Food was below average. Service was terrible. A Birthday party in the back of the restaurant took up all of the servers time.Only one server and one cook working as far as I could see. A total disappointment.

The best, most authentic Mexican food on the Coast. Tony and Martha have been providing excellent fare for years and the quality has always been phenomenal. In my opinion, the best chips and salsa in existence is available here. Make sure you grab a booth and relax!

Staff is friendly, but everything on the menu is microwaved. Just make it at home and save your money. I should have known better than to order food when they tried to serve me instant tea in Mississippi. How does this place have 4+ stars??? I’ll never know.

The place was empty on a weekend and it STILL took them way too long to make our food.The food was pretty good but my cousins tortillas were room temperature and slightly stale.Average or above food but don't expect your food for 30 minutes to an hour. Maybe they just had a bad night. Very polite people though.

The perfect little hole in the wall restaurant. The place isn't fancy or one of the chaos but their food is out of this world. Maybe because it's authentic and made with love. Service was good, Tony calls everyone his friend and checks in on you to make sure everything's ok. My meal was amazing, I cleaned my plate. I had the beef burrito supreme dinner with red beans and rice. wish I had taken a picture but I was starving. Really enjoyed their nachos too. I'll definitely be going back and I highly recommend this place. only issue, the booths are really cramped. other than that, perfect dining experience!

Best authentic Mexican food on the coast. Tony, his sister Martha , and all of the crew are top notch with the best food (and Margarita's hands down!!) on the coast. For anyone not from the coast that does not know,..this place has been open 40+ years,..restaurants that are not top notch do not stay open that long. In my book no more proof needed to go check this fine establishment out.

I enjoyed the beef taco and cheese enchilada with the chili con carne topping. The chips and salsa are also very good. Next time, I won't get a meal, just two tacos and two enchiladas with the chips and salsa. Definitely, the most authentic Mexican fare in this area. Highly recommend!

I haven't been there since I was 18. It is still over priced and bland. I didn't realize we were inside it was the same place that was there in the 80's. I thought it would have improved in 30 years. They have not. It'll be another 30... I'll forget and remember when its too late again.

We have been coming here for years now as one of our special places to eat. Tony is always courteous and greets us as if we are visiting his home. I always order my chicken burrito ranchero and nachos....best I've ever had. Well worth the drive from Diamondhead and will be heading there this evening!
