Really enjoyed our meal here, closest thing to San Antonio we have found. Very good salsa and chips and the taco salad was great. Good service all around.

There was a long line at the door when we arrived 15 minutes before they opened. Understandably - the food was delicious. Servers did a great job of getting to the people first seated, so there was quite a wait for our dinners. It was well worth it but don't go if you're in a rush.
