“Cannot be fearful of pigeons”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013 via mobile

Food average to poor. Stopped here after checking in for a beer and light lunch. Pigeons everywhere but nice place otherwise to sit and enjoy a beer and watch the riverwalk. This is Texmex not mexican

“Best Mexican food in all of San Antonio!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

We travel from far Northeast side of town 2-3 times a month just because we LOVE the food. Never miss a chance to take visiting relatives there also! I've been going there for over 40 years, and when coming back in town from vacation, have to go get my fix of their awesome Chef's Special. The chicken tacos and enchiladas are awesome!

“Great service and price but nothing special with the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

Service was great and the food came quickly. Margueritas were good. The chips served with the Salsa were very hard and lacked taste. The rest of the meal was fine but nothing makes me want to give it a very good rating. The price was very good though ... however, I would rather pay a premium and get 'great' food.

“Very good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

San Antonio has thousands of tex mex resturants. Most are very good. Its like finding bad pasta in Rome. Its hard to do. But MM is a cut aove the rest. Set on the Patio and look at the River. It the same view Jim Bowie had when he lived at the Veramendi Hpouse that used to be next door

“Traditional Tex-Mex in the heart of downtown San Antonio”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

A friend took me to this restaurant during my recent hometown visit to San Antonio. We were downtown to go check out the San Fernando Cathedral and this restaurant is right across the street. It is one of his favorites. It's has a Mexican diner type atmosphere. There were many business people there during lunch and it was busy. But the service was great and the food was traditional tex-mex. Good food, good price and good location.
