“Like San Antonio”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

They do an great job of recreating the San Antonio river walk feel. The food is pretty good. Service was slow but didn't detract (and that mimics San Antonio too!)

“Expected more from Tex Mex in Texas”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Ate here for lunch and I had the puff tacos. they were OK, 3 large sized tacos that were, well, puffy. It was too much food for one sitting, and again...just ok.

The decor is lovely with faux patio seating (indoors, not out) next to the a faux river.

“Definitely Tex Mex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The food is expensive and tastes more like Taco Cabana..maybe even worse. We were starving so it served it's purpose. The salsa and fresh chips were excellent.
