    The most delicious food. The carnitas were mouth watering & the sopapillas were the best I’ve had. They take reservations which is great. The service was the best. Very friendly & hospitable staff. I highly recommend this restaurant. I will go back every time I come to San Antonio.

    Food was disappointing. Chile con queso was melted velveeta cheese, guacamole had no flavor. Main meal of fajitas came with a huge plate of rice, two tiny bowls of beans. Chicken was dry and beef was pretty good. Would I return? No

    We’ve eaten here several times and we love the energy and ambiance but this time we had TERRIBLE service. The waiter was missing half the time and rude. He smirked at me when I told him It wasn’t what i ordered and said something under his breath, needless to say no gratuity for him.

    To begin the parking attendant greeted us with a huge welcome smile and hello. This young woman is an asset to your restaurant. There was an awful sewage smell outside the restaurant walking to the front door. We were seated immediately and the waiter provided quick service. Food was fairly well drinks were good.

    In historic market...so good place to bring folks from out of town to see the area. Food choices are limited. Margaritas are hit or miss. Had energy and the atmosphere was fun, but would probably pass on the food.

    I had wanted to revisit given how much my family enjoyed it when I was a child. Unfortunately, the food was really not very good and the drinks watery. I know how much everyone is struggling right now but this is one to miss.

    Our server was wonderful and the food was very good. We are in the heat of the summer so we ate inside and it was a bit loud but we still enjoyed it. We had to leave our stroller outside which was a bit of an inconvenience as the tables were somewhat crammed in the dining area. Overall, a great experience.
