Restaurants in Texas: Eating Our Way Across Texas

Restaurants in Texas. Oh, the choices! BBQ, seafood, Mexican, German, Cajun, buffets, bakeries, and.... You've heard that song, "Waltz Across Texas." Well, we are eating our way across Texas as we are RVing.

Our RV Life and Travels Have Led Us to these Restaurants in Texas

Las Cazuelas Restaurant
314 S F Street
Harlingen, TX 78550
Ph: 956-423-7892

Las Cazuelas Restaurant serves excellent breakfast tortillas and authentic Mexican foods. The exterior isn't fancy, but we were so busy enjoying our delicious breakfast that we didn't give the outside another thought. Las Cazuelas Restaurant also has a bar.


Mama Chole’s Mexican Restaurant
234 US-83
Leakey, TX 78873
Phone: (830) 232-6111

Mama Chole’s Mexican Restaurant is Bob’s favorite restaurant in the town of Leakey! The carne guisada is tender and flavorful. I particularly like Paul's Peppers – the menu describes them as stuffed jalapenos, but the meat, onion, and cheese mixture is actually layered on top of the split peppers. When they have their house-made salsa, it is excellent. Mama Chole’s Mexican Restaurant is located on the main highway going through town, reasonably close to most downtown parking. Oh, be sure to get a Pecan Chewey!


Lala's Mexican Restaurant
491 US-83
Leakey, TX 78873
Phone: (830) 232-4572

Lala's Mexican Restaurant is my (Coleen’s) favorite restaurant in the town of Leakey! We’ve eaten at who-knows-how-many Mexican restaurants during our RV travels, and the Lala’s has the best beef fajitas I’ve ever had. The meat is tender and well-seasoned – both the fajita beef and the carne guisada. Lala’s has two hot sauces they put on the tables; I particularly like them both. There is nearby street parking for even large RVs.


San Juan Taqueria Mexican Food
448 N US Highway 83
Leakey, Texas 78873
Phone (830) 232-5388

San Juan Taqueria Mexican Food eatery dishes out fresh breakfast tacos and other Mexican fare. It looks like a drive-through, but you park and walk up to the window to order. There is adequate parking for RVs. There’s outside seating, or you can get your orders to go. If you are at San Juan Taqueria Mexican Food for breakfast, I suggest the chorizo and potato taco, with extra green salsa! Prices are reasonable.


M  & M’s Breakfast Tacos and More
261 N.Hwy 83
Leakey, Texas 78873
Ph. (830) 232-5116

M  & M’s Breakfast Tacos and More is a drive through taco stand, but they do have a couple of tables and some chairs outside if you’d like to stop to eat there. The breakfast tacos we had were very good. They come with a choice of meat, plus your choice of three additional fillings. Bob said his bacon was fried to perfection – and it was served as a full slice rather than chopped to bits. Each taco was prepared individually and fresh, so it took a while to get our order. With our Class C motorhome, we could park directly in front of the restaurant. I thought I saw on the menu that the name of this eatery was M&M Taco Stand, and I thought the “breakfast tacos and more” on the front sign was there to describe the food available. But, it seem the full name of this taco place is indeed  M  & M’s Breakfast Tacos and More.


Mill Creek Cafe
849 U.S. 83 South
Leakey, TX 78873
Phone: (830) 232-4805

Mill Creek Cafe is a family restaurant. The lunch buffet includes southern favorites, such as chicken fried steak and fried green tomatoes. I don’t know the name of it, but there was a vegetable salad on the salad bar that is outstanding, with a creamy, somewhat sweet, dressing. Mill Creek Cafe is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. RV parking is reasonable.


Bayside Cafe
725 Santa Isabel Blvd
Laguna Vista, Texas 78578.
Ph: 956- 943-8080

Bayside Cafe is a local restaurant, where you'll most likely see the owners waiting table or visiting with customers. The oatmeal is particularly good.


Teds' Restaurant
5717 Padre Blvd
South Padre Island, TX 78597
Ph: 956-761-5327

Ted's Restaurant is a local cafe on South Padre Island. The food is good. The breakfast tacos are mini-sized.


Cafe on the Beach at the Palms Resort
3316 Gulf Road
South Padre Island, TX 78597
Ph: 956-761-1310

Cafe on the Beach at the Palms Resort gave us mixed messages. It has upscale prices, but serves coffee in paper cups. I did not see anywhere close for RV parking.
