Soups have changed

We like the soup and salad lunch special. Usually the soup is wonderful however the last time we went the soup had been changed. The names are the same but the ingredients aren't. It was way too salty and the sliced sausage had been replaced with tiny bits of ground sausage.

This is a Mexican restaurant in to RGV. There are 3 locations. The best one is on 10th Street. Most of the Food is Good. The soup is good but it can be salty some days. I think it is expensive for Mexican Food.

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary by ourselves during lunch. The waitress provides extremely professional service. She even gave us a small congratulatory note with our tab. Food was great and the environment was perfect for celebration!!!

Good prices for the amount of food you get. My husband and me order a red wine glass each one and they were not cheap, we got a lot...in general you can eat for 13 usd per person and plenty of food.
