Margaritas were tasty and the guacamole was substantially better than average. Wife's spinach enchiladas were excellent but, perhaps, a bit heavy on the cilantro cream sauce. My taco fajita salad was a disappointment--basically iceberg lettuce and chicken straps. REALLY! The cheesecake dessert was a shock....More

Plenty of free parking. Convenient location under the Spice Market (also worth seeing). We went here 2 times in 3 days as the food and service was so good. Great menu options, and good prices. Highly recommend this restaurant.

We will be visiting Waco on a Friday during Lent and will be looking for a place with fish or shrimp tacos or other seafood options for lunch. Are those available here?
