Today I had a bad experience here. I ordered some breakfast which is normally a good thing here. The waitress Didn't get the order right . Partially the waitress fault and partially the cook's fault .... I order cheese on my Migas and it didn't show up . I ordered one Pancake and it didn't show up on the Ticket ,but the add the cheese was. . Not a Big deal ,but the Lady at the Register Blamed it on being a Busy Day . And the Waitress was way too busy to see we had a problem. Not a good answer . When you wait on Table you need to check on your customers at least one time after you serve the meal. Just taking the order , dropping the plates and forgetting you are there is never a good thing. So other people in the Rest are more important than the ones you already served? Or the waitress is swamped and didn't have time to check on us. ? I don't think that was any of what up . She was cleaning a table next to us and didn't even come by to check. I had to wave down another waitress to get one Tortilla too. OMG Get more help or Get off your rear to help your wait staff. Not only did I didn't get what I ordered but You loose money too because I didn't get my extra stuff. . I am sure this isn't a one time deal. sometimes you forget how you get where you are . no problem . Be long time before I go back . I get better service at Chavelos around the corner. . Then The Lady at the register . I guess the Manager ? She said I didn't know if you noticed , but the waitress had other people to attend to . I said I don't care what she had to do ,but My order was messed up and if they had done it right I would not be asking . Then she said don't worry I won't charge you for what you didn't get , But I Am for sure going to charge you for what you did get . NO BUENO !! She could have charged me for what I didn't get too. I don't care the problem was I didn't get what I ordered and she didn't care. Sad times in Buda Texas............... reading other posts . The service is a problem . need to address this or keep cheating your customers . get some real waiters or waitresses. not imitation food servers. See More

Best breakfast around. Been there for years. Always great food and service. Really makes you doubt the few negative reviews. Most likely the bad reviews come from the competition and/or those that thi...nk McD’s breakfast is the bomb. See More

Casa Alde reminds me of my gandmother's cooking. She always used one main ingredient.... "love". I walk in and I am greeted by my first name and with a smile! They have the best "migas" in the area.... Pay it a visit, you won't regret it! See More

I always enjoy the character older buildings can possess and Helen’s delivers that. I had migas supreme and it was everything I missed about a hill country Mexican breakfast. I will be coming back!

The food is always good but the service yesterday was terrible. We finally got our food after about 30 or 40 minutes but we still didn't have silverware. We also needed butter and they forgot the mea...ts that were part of our breakfast plates. By the time we got it all and could actually eat it was cold, and we just wanted to leave. We ate what we could. Need better floor management on Sundays and wait staff that can do more than one thing at a time, ie, bring silverware to us and extra napkins to another table. Ours needed multiple trips to make that happen.

Also, some ventilation in the restrooms. They were like a sauna.

I visited Helen's from out of town on Sunday and had great service. I stayed so long talking with my friends that we didn't even realize the restaurant had closed and not bothered to tell us to leave.... Thank you for your hospitality and kindness to let us have one final time together before splitting up to go our separate ways. We appreciated the food and the kindness! See More

Best tacos around!!!!!!! If your looking for a great place to eat this is it!

Shortly said: these tacos are fantastic...but this place is known for so much more than their tacos! They practically have a cult following of loyal local families who regularly dine here! When I say ...families, I mean multiple generations of the same family still eat here regularly. It's delicious, it's family-friendly, it's fast and easy, family-owned, and this place REALLY cares about their community! See More

I love Helen's Casa Alde.
I've eaten there since i was a young man, 1980 something!
I remember going into the restaurant from the time walking in till i left the smell of home cooking. It's so awesome... that my cousin and his family have taken on the tradition of a fine eatery. Love my Fatty, the menudo, and the miga supreme.

The Carne Guisada with cheese is the gold standard of breakfast tacos. From one fat guy to the next, you will not be disappointed. Everything is on point, homemade, and amazing.
