    One of our favorite Galveston restaurants! Unpretentious, inexpensive, delicious Tex-Mex. But the best-kept secret? Excellent grilled shrimp fajitas! And delicious frozen margaritas.

    Try the Vercruzana plate - it's a loaded chalupa and it's good for lunch.

    Everything here is good! Salsa is homemade and spicy, and be sure to try some queso. Quick service but don't ask for too many changes or additions to your meal, they get moody!

    Ask for takeout chips and salsa. For a couple of bucks, you'll get a shopping bag full of chips and the best homemade salsa on the island.I love the sangritas, but was upset to learn last night (t
