The Original Mexican Cafe


The Original Mexican Cafe

1401 Market, Galveston, TX

A favorite with locals, The Original welcomes families for breakfast (weekends only), lunch and dinner. Every meal starts with a complimentary, bottomless basket of tortilla chips and salsa; entrees include the usual quesadillas, enchiladas, fish tacos and more. Portions tend to run on the large size, so sharing is a great option for children. The large portions combined with affordable prices makes The Original a good value for families on vacation.
