I heard that a lot of people didn't like the service..and yeah, it wasn't a five star, but hey, it was not very expensive and it had great food. The Enchiladas Divorciadas were suuuuuper delicious. No raw onions and great sauce. The Enchiladas De Mole, on the other hand, kinda tasted like ash. They were gross. Keeping it at 5/5... More

Nice place. Food fresh but lacking flavor Service was poor. Had to hunt her down to get our silverware and napkins AFTER our food was delivered. No drink refills; actually never saw her again. Had to ask another waiter for our bill. Much better food in SAT, so won't be back here.

Food was very ordinary. The mole was watery and rather tasteless. Service was verrrry slow and we had to ask for our service person twice. We also had to request that the bathroom be cleaned. This was a surprising visit as several years ago our experience was very positive. Hope this isn't the norm.

Stopped in for dinner because a friend had recommended them to me. It was nothing special. The chips are cut thick, are very dense & not crispy. The darker salsa was much better than the other one because it had little to no flavor at all. I think it was just fresh tomatoes pureed & nothing else. The meal itself... More

Came here on a Sunday for lunch. I had the Enchiladas '09. They were good and sauce was good. Service was outstanding. Would return if I am in the area.

Don't know where to begin. Wow- what an awful dining experience. I should've known better. My buddy next to me also ordered the fagita plate so they placed them down at the same time. His plate was sizzling, mine was just there. We laughed about it at first, then I began eating the worst tasting Mexican food I can remember... More

We shared the guacamole olmeca appetizer with my son and his girlfriend. It was a nice way to start the meal. All of us enjoyed our entrees out on the large porch area. It was a warm day, and we could have eaten indoors, but the porch area was too nice to pass up. Highly recommend this restaurant as someone... More

Use 5800 Broadway as the address! The food is great. The Resturant is in a great location with great wait staff. The owner is clearly very involved and focused!

Truly delicious Mexican food in an inviting atmosphere. Dishes taste better here than anywhere else I've been. My one criticism is that the low lighting can make it a little difficult to read the menu. They do have some nice outdoor seating when the Texas heat subsides.
