Always liked this place until today. As I waited for my food the table behind me was receiving their meal. All of a sudden I am hit with a tray of food. As is am cleaning myself, no one apologized for spilling it on me, nor acknowledged the fact that food was on me. I'm not one to complain but... More

I've been here many times over the years and was finally able to bring my wife. She agreed that this is better than any Tex-Mex that we've had outside of Texas. There are some different dishes, like the craw-fish tacos, which were very good. I can't recall what my wife had, but she raved about the fluffy tortillas. Nice atmosphere,... More

This is your average Tex-Mex but much more expensive than other Mexican restaurants. I ordered the chicken fajitas (they come in 3 sizes). I got the smallest size, about the equivalent of a small chicken breast and it came with onions, no peppers. This was $16.99, what a rip off. The small margaritas were not cheap and had little alcohol... More

Consistently tasty food with several menu items that you won't find in the dozens of other Tex-Mex restaurants in town. The crawfish enchiladas are excellent, as are the pechugas Alfonso. The green salsa is also very, very good. The atmosphere is pleasant. It's located in an old brick warehouse building, with tall brick walls, ceilings, and murals of some of... More

They closed the one in Fort Worth years ago. The fajitas are WONDERFUL! Fresh and amazing tortillas. The beans are great and have a little peppery kick to them. We went during a conference so it was busy and crowded, bit service was still prompt and the food was great

That was horrible! Totally sub par food. First we ordered queso that was gelatinous. The beans tasted like the were from a can, rice was horrible and dry, and the enchiladas were just nasty. I was sick before I even left the restaurant, and I only had about two bites of everything. Do not go there!

This place had been talked up by friends and family so we went while driving back home from vacation. We went at 7 pm on a Monday night. We were seated quickly. Then the waiter got our order wrong and the food tasted like it had been sitting for a while in the back. Meat over cooked and dry ect.... More

Food was okay; not our favorite Mexican. Be aware not all tripadvisor menu listings are correct. Our server was very polite and the location is fun.

Was looking for a good Mexican restaurant in Waco on way to San Antonio. Food was great. Service was very efficient. Little pricey, but not scary, and for all you get very happy we stopped.

If you are traveling on I35 going to Austin or the coast, make sure you make this as your road stop for a bite of great food. The spinach enchiladas, nachos and Ritas are all so yummy, but if you want to try something different at a Tex-Mex restaurant, give the red fish covered in a savory buttery sauce served... More
