Best Breakfast Before Boarding Your Cruise In Galveston

Bronco Burritos In Galveston

If you’re cruising from Galveston and are looking for a breakfast place, check out Bronco Burrito. Located at 4917 Broadway Avenue J, you’ll know you are in the right place when you see the bright blue building.

Open from 6 a.m. until 12 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, they serve authentic Mexican burritos and combination plates. We stopped by at 9:30 a.m. on a Saturday just before boarding the Carnival Vista and the place was buzzing. Despite the many people ordering, service was friendly, quick and efficient. Our food was served in less than 10 minutes and was piping hot and delicious.

A long-time Galveston staple, Bronco Burrito was closed for just over two years after an electrical fire in June of 2020. They reopened in July of 2022 and their kitchen and dining area are now larger and better than before. We visited about 5 years ago and while the food was delicious, the waiting area was cramped, and seating was very limited. Both things have been resolved with the new rebuild.

We opted for the Carne Guisada burrito and the Chorizo eggs platter. Both came with a side of homemade tortillas. The eggs were accompanied by refried beans and pan-fried potatoes.

The food was fresh, hot and delicious. We also ordered Mexican Cokes that came in large bottles and was ice cold. Two meals and two cokes came to just over $26 with tax.  The meals were large enough that neither of us could finish them. The egg plate could easily be shared between two people.

Parking is limited in their parking lot, but off-street parking was available just a few feet away and it was plentiful. The clientele seems to consist of mostly locals which tells you the food is good. Bronco Burritos is going to be part of our pre-cruise “must dos” from now on.
