As a native San Antonian, I've been eating here on occasion. Used to be very good - not now. No complimentary chips and salsa! Whoever heard of a Mexican restaurant doing this? The waitress forgot to refill my tea too. The food was okay, but...More

I've been going to this place for 10+ years. With that said, they used to be a lot better. The enchiladas themselves are smaller and not as filled with cheese. The rice and beans are the same and delicious. They've been voted best enchiladas in...More
