Bienvenidos a 

El Gallito Mexican Restaurant

Join us for breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday mornings, open at 7 am.

Opening in 2009, El Gallito Mexican Restaurant has propelled itself into one of the best Mexican Restaurants in the Rio Grande Valley. It’s authentic Mexican food brings a taste of the Mexican culture from yesteryear. The older generation patrons that eat at El Gallito say the food reminds them of the food their mothers made.

El Gallito has quickly become one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in San Benito and Harlingen alike. The restaurant packs a full house during lunch hours on a daily basis. Come and dine with us and taste the reason why El Gallito has become so successful.

Some of the best fish tacos I have ever eaten. Everything is wonderful. I've had fajita/street tacos, fish tacos, and quesadillas and I have been extremely satisfied every time. The chips and salsa are some of my favorites as well.  These fish tacos compete and are maybe even better than my favorite places on the island. They give you beans and rice as well and they are also fantastic.  I seem to forgot about this place when we come down, but I'll have to start to put it in the rotation. Very good!
