“Worth the wait!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

This place lives up to its reputation! A must visit when in the area. Parking was tight but they offer valet. Go early, to avoid any wait.

“Brisket Taco!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Let me begin by saying this place gets packed fast. The chips and salsa were ok. I tried two tacos, the tacolu verde and the brisket. I immediately wished I had gotten two brisket tacos instead. The Tacolu verde was average at best but the brisket taco was amazing. I sampled my girlfriend's $10 taco (which is actually like $4-5) and it was good as well, but do yourself a favor and grab a brisket.

“Does not live up to the hype.”
Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

The bar was super crowded, service half-hearted. Chips and salsa at the bar were good, margaritas only so-so. Wait was an hour, as quoted. Server seemed high, and was very slow. Had to ask for napkins & silverware, beet served warm in cans (canned beer?!) and food just OK. Next time, we'll go to Cantina Laredo.

“Cool Mexican Spot”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

This place has an amazing atmosphere. They text you when your table is ready. We were told a 45 min wait and it was exactly that. The bar was crowded but the staff was very attentive to the patrons waiting to b seated. It was very loud, but in a good way! The only Down side is they only have 1 restroom!! But having complimentary valet made up for that! Will definitely return when in town.

“Overpriced and not very good”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Go for the tequila, but don't eat anything. A better choice would be just up the road at La Nopalera.
