Goofs

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

Once Satanico Pandemonium ends her show, there is a close up of Seth clapping his hands and saying "Now that's what I call a fucking show!" But in the next shot which is further away he is seen clapping his hands and mouthing the same thing again but no audio.

Jacob Fuller is established as a (lapsed) Baptist minister early on. At the scene behind the bar in the weapon room, he blesses water and makes the sign of the cross. A Baptist minister would never do this, as genuflections and the concept of "holy water" are Catholic.

When getting out of the car at the hotel room, Seth tells Richard to pop the trunk (i.e., he wants Richard to open the trunk remotely from inside the car). Then, Seth opens the trunk using a key.
When Carlos asks Seth if he wants a beer, Carlos says he has "Mexican and domestic." They're in Mexico so domestic beer would be Mexican.

Continuity 

The page of the magazine that the store clerk is reading.

After the brothers rob the liquor store, we see them driving down the highway and Richie's leg is hanging out the window. Seen from inside the car, his leg is inside and then he does not put his leg out the window until later.

In the scene outside the Titty Twister, Seth grabs Cheech Marin's hand with his right hand, bending it back and to the side. In the next scene, Seth now has the same hold but applied with his left hand as he hits Cheech in the face with his right hand.

Before telling his story about Vietnam, Frost lights a match to light is cigar, despite the fact that a few scenes earlier he threw his match box on the ground to set one of the vampires ablaze in a puddle of liquor.

Seth Gecko's tattoos change between scenes. From when they are in the hotel, to when they are in the RV, there is a change in design. At first two parts of the tattoo are attached, in the RV, they are no longer attached.

Errors in geography 

After they cross the border, Seth gives Jacob very simple instructions: drive straight forward until he meets a crossing road, then turn left. After they do they're driving towards a setting sun, however going south and turning left would have them face east, not west.

The border crossing in the film, from Texas to Mexico, is made over flat land. Anywhere you cross the border in Texas you must pass over the Rio Grande.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

During the fight in the Titty Twister bar, Seth's 6-shooter fires more than six shots. This is a Robert Rodriguez director-trademark.

Revealing mistakes 

During the fight in the Titty Twister, when the vampire's head rolls over towards Kate she actually misses the head when she tries to step on it. But in the next shot, it's sitting neatly under her foot.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Continuity 

As Scott is bitten by Jacob, plenty shots of gushing blood are shown, when Jacob releases a mere scratch is on Scott's neck. The next shot shows a blood covered neck.

Continuity 

Kate's crossbow starts with three arrows on each side and one in the middle. She fires numerous arrows at the vampires, yet her supply of arrows never seems to go down. For the most part, this is due to the fact that it is a pump-action crossbow (as is shown when she first cocks it after picking it up) that brings a new bolt into position when the string is cocked back with the pump. While this explains why she doesn't have to sit around and reload the thing after every shot, the six bolts attached to the bow of the weapon do disappear suddenly, and apparently without being loaded into the bolt cartridge.
