    My daughter and I decided to eat here before going to a concert at Billy Bob’s. We made a reservation at 7:15, which they were unable to find. They said it was going to be a 30min wait, but they did go ahead and seat us right away because I was able to show them my reservation confirmation. Unfortunately things went down hill from there. The place was packed and I believe the staff was very overwhelmed. It took forever for our server to take our drink order, even longer to get them, and over an hour to get a simple order of fajitas. The food was ok, but not worth an hour long wait.

    Was able to get a table without a wait. The service was excellent. Our waitress made sure a cup wasn’t empty and kept the chips and salsa going. The burritos were seasoned perfectly, lots of good taste. The shrimp was not fresh.

    We ordered them carne asada plate and the mahi mahi. The asada plate was good but the beans were not great and neither was the salad. The mahi mahi was not great. There was so much cheese on top that was the only thing I tasted and the fish itself felt dry. We were expecting so much more from a restaurant that is at the Stockyard and seems to have a good reputation. Overall not impressed.

    The hostess was wonderful. The waitress stated the drink I asked about WAS on happy hour and, I ordered two at one time since I knew I’d be there for a bit, and turns out is excluded. The manager did NOT honor the waitress’s mistake. 1-2 price to full price for a half decent drink is ridiculous and the manager should have realized that most people don’t order 2 at one time at 15 a pop! Very unprofessional.

    Reservations late afternoon. Shrimp Fajitas for 2-3 people around $40. Platter was so small that we asked to confirm it truly was the larger platter for 2 vs an individual one. Waitress pushed ordering so much even though there were MANY open tables and no line waiting. When leaving I wanted to walk around outside for a bit and was stopped by parking lot valet attendant that they do not permit this and vehicle would be towed. Spent over $120 in the establishment and can’t even use the lot that had many open spots available. Would not recommend.
