We made reservations a week before like we do every year as I take out my wife mother and family here every Mother's Day. When we arrived there I told them the reservation name and they said they don't have it so you will wave to wait about 30 minutes. Well we had to wait about 40 minutes before we... More

We were in town for a family funeral, and decided to get some Mexican food. Having never been here before and living in San Antonio for 26 years, we're really picky about our mexican food. What an awesome surprise!!!! First of all, the server brings out salsa AND refried beans with the chips, and they aren't canned beans neither. Hubby... More

I hadn't been here in awhile (years) but my wife wanted to attend. One of the things that bothers me about restaurants is the description of shredded/pulled. It should not take more work to cut an enchilada than to recalibrate an espresso machine when you switch from Nestle to Starbucks. Queso was great but you HAVE to find a way... More

You can tell the quality of this restaurant by showing up on a Mexican holiday. Service was primo. Started with a Queso spinach artichoke dip. Lots of bread, tons of chips with bean dip.I had the shrimp enchiladas & my hubby the Shrimp Chimichanga. Finished off the meal with a flan. Very friendly staff. It felt like you were family.

Parking is weak but available. Property is clean. Reception satisfactory. Noise level high. Service above average but not stellar. Menu typical. Food was hot and fresh. Presentation okay. Little light on flavor. Full bar, drinks were good. Flan was good.Little on the high side. Worth trying

We live in New Orleans and used to come here a lot. Ate here Mardi Gras Day to avoid the parades. I haven't been here in many years, and we were in the area so I thought, Why Not? The places is very nicely appointed and clean, and I always liked the fountain in the middle of the room. It... More

Its starred of bad but thought it would be worth it. The parking lot was full. Dropped my husband near the door and drove around for 20 minutes waiting for a parking space. No side roads to park and very small parking lot for all of the business housed there. BUT ok must be worth the wait. When we where... More
