A really nice place with excellent service and true Mexican cuisine, I can only recommend the La Playa Mexican Cafe. Try anything from their menu, I bet it will be delicious. We dined there several times during our stay in Corpus Christi and had always a blast. Do leave room for the dessert, that is the one which tops everything!

If you can, make a reservation. We were lucky, we went there early and they still had tables available.
