Immediate seating inside amid horribly loud 80's dance music (Friday is club night) and a disco ball flashing the dance floor. Minimal menu selection, minimal taste. Nice wait staff, and nice gal taking pictures. Not my place unfortunately.

Food was overpriced and sub-par McMexican. The margaritas were awful - bottom shelf tequila and syrupy sweet. The server was very nice, but otherwise it was a lousy experience.

Stopped her to warm up during a cold San Antonio day. We only ate appetizers, which were good. Had an great seat over looking the river walk. If we make it back to San Antonio this will be a stop during nicer weather.

Stopped by for happy hour margaritas, appetizers, and people watching. Nice break from all the walking!

The service was okay. The meals on the other hand were not what we expected. My sandwich was greasy and the fries tasted microwaved. Another person in the party said the chicken and cheese quesadilla was awful. It looked microwaved as well. Maybe it’s the...More
