Stopped here for a quick meal. It was 11:00 at night and was still fairly busy. The service was good. The food was really good. The one thing I did not care for was the very loud karaoke being sung.

I love the avacado salsa here. I could literally drink the stuff. Doesn't matter which meat you get, it's all good. Flour tortillas and fresh and well, this place is the best.

This place must hire the same idiots that get fired at Mama Margies, they cant get a drive through order right to save their life. They are rude, slow, I honestly cant fathom how people cant get an order right. I will never go back...to this place, I suggest you stay away as wellMore

Great atmosphere, service, and food! Fresh ingredients give all the dishes great flavor! The salsa bar is a nice addition! Chips are great too! There was a musician playing traditional music which added to an already great experience!

The flour tortillas are a little different than most places in San Antonio. They are a little thinner, but nevertheless, cooked fresh, and taste really good. The corn tortillas have good depth, and are fresh. It is not the kind of place to stay long...because most people during the day are on lunch break, so they are looking for fast service. The only thing I do not highly recommend is the barbacoa here. The cut of barbacoa meat is not that fresh, and it is a little greasier than most places, but it is not bad if you are in a hurry. The salsa bar has a wide variety, but during rush hours, they may run low on the salsa you are looking for. My personal favorites are the tatemada, roja, and guacamole salsa.More

Passing through San Antonio late at night with the family and stopped in for some tacos for the road. Grabbed a bag of tortilla chips, and then proceeded to fill up several little plastic cups with delicious sauces and sides. The fresh salsa bar offered...lettuce, onions, cilantro, limes, jalapenos, and around six or seven sauces. While we watched a lady press out tortilla after delicious tortilla, the grill was was sizzling away with several whole steaks and lots of chicken. Before long we were handed a bag full of tasty beef, chicken,and barbacoa, tacos! On first take, I thought they looked a little small for the price. These are not tiny 99 cent tacos, but they were not super large either. However, after one bite, I knew that the quality and taste more than made up for the smallish to average size. Good meat, better than average cheese, nice flavors and spices, along with the fresh salsa bar made for a great taco! I wavered between 3 stars and 4 stars for this review. Food quality, cleanliness, ambiance, would have probably earned 3. I went 4 star for the convenience factor. This location is open 24 hours a day. The fact that you can have someone grill up tacos like this at late PM on a Monday night, or a Saturday at 3am, has to factor in!More

I order a taco combo platter one steak and one barbacoa, both taco was plain nothing on it, the barbacoa one was tolerable but the steak one was literally a entire piece of meat with zero flavor.

Great Food - Fast Service - Great Salsa Bar - Meats are well seasoned and very tender - you will not walk away from this place hungry. Overall, try this place and take the kids, it is very good.
