This is a first restaurant in San Antonio from this chain that I believe was started in Houston. Surprisingly, the food was very authentic Mexican/Texan food. The ingredients were very fresh. The chips thin and crispy. The salsa was fresh made. A good number of plates to choose from. It is now one of my "go to" Mexican restaurants. They... More

Used TA as guide for lunch in this area and felt very good about choice. Staff were great from greeting at door to everyone that served. Menu had several choices I wanted to try and both choices for our lunch were excellent. Price, portions and service all excellent for a couple guys in and out of San Antonio. Very worthwhile...

We have eaten here a couple of times, and it is not a place I cannot wait to get back to. The food is so-so, and the service we received was not the best. In my opinion, there are much better places for Mexican food. Not the worst place in the world, just not at the top of my list.

This is my 2nd trip to San Antonio in the past year. Lupe Tortilla was referred to me on my last trip but I wasn't able to get by so it was a must try this time. Salsa was super fresh and amazing especially if you like a little heat with your food. I was also giving some type of... More

We stopped here for a Mexican food fix after being in CA for 10 days. I was pleasantly surprised as to how good the food was. Jacob the bartender was a great server and made really good skinny margaritas. I had the beef asada tacos which were very good.

First time we went here it was a week night and it was quiet. We were pleasantly surprised by how good everything was...the guac, the salsa, the margaritas, and the entrees. Second time we went back was a Friday night and we found two seats at the bar to avoid the very long wait. The bartenders were slammed but took... More

Let me begin with saying WOW. The place was clean, great food and since I visited during happy hour $5 beer. I highly recommend the place. The beef fajitas were great.

Had the green chicken enchiladas from the lunch menu expecting a small portion but it was huge. Nicely plated with a generous portion of salad with sour cream. The rice was different, but tasty. Was going to complain about the salsa that was served with the chips. It was more like Pico and very thin. But when I asked for... More

If your looking for the best fajitas, this is the place. Full service restaurant. Great atmosphere inside and out. Good selection of Mexican beers and very good margaritas.

Ok, the food was better than good. Great really. But the service was spotty. Friday night and it was busy, but not overly so. Noisy but not too loud to have a conversation without yelling. My wife and her sister had the fajitas which were as advertised. I had the bacon wrapped shrimp and steak. Both were excellent, the shrimp... More
