Not a whole lot of good options really. Taqueria el chato is great for breakfast though.

If Kings Inn is an option its worth the drive. I would make it there Saturday just so you can go there but call and make a reservation!!

I think the old Baffin Bay cafe which is now Baffin Bay Seafood is better than Kings Inn. You don't have to order by the pound and the "tartar sauce" is the same recipe that Kings Inn created; good stuff.

http://www.baffinbayseafoodco.com/

They're open 7 days a week with a nice view of Baffin Bay.

The Kings Inn, is south of town, down near Rivera. Very good sea food, but is not a place for one person to go by themselves. They serve food by the pound. The fish is great, frog legs are great, onion rings and you should try the tomatoes. They have the best tarter sauce around. The place has been around for a very long time. I need to go back, I have not been there in a long time.

Young's Pizza - cool feel, by the college
El Tapatio- Mexican
Big House Burgers - great American burgers, wings, fried food, and COLD beer

Yea....not much in the way of good food IN Kingsville. Kings Inn as stated earlier but it's closed Sun & Mon I believe.

The little drug store across from the saddle shop has pretty good burgers.

I grew up there and remember there weren’t many good eat places besides Kings Inn. Unfortunately there are closed Sunday & Monday. That being said try Bafin Bay Inn if they are still around. You can also try Young’s Pizza on Coral Street off north end of Armstrong Street, just past the University. They have a good choice of hoagie style sandwiches. I like the Texacali. Used to have good pizza. That’s about all your choices unless you want Mexican. Plenty of those there. Oh forgot there is a Pizza place on west end of Hwy 141 that I remember as good. Good luck.

I am not sure what the boot maker's name was. It was posted by another boot maker online and I was the first caller. The boot maker passed away and I'm meeting his step son there to buy the shop Sunday morning. I bought the whole shop equiptment, leather, lasts, ALL.

I think my family had several pairs of boots made by him. He was an elderly Hispanic guy. His office was downtown.

I think his shop was on 7th street

All I know is that he was Hispanic. He had a shop that burnt down at one point. I am on pins and needles wanting to know what all I will get besides the line finisher, landis K, landis 5in1, and the singler 3115 they had pictures of.

Sounds like him. I know nothing of boot equipment but my wife’s boots cost more than several of my guns....
