“Lovely ambience to enjoy Mexican food”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a local person we stopped to ask directions. It lived up to his enthusiastic referral. It is located on the river with a lovely view of Riverwalk. The service was great; in fact when my friend asked about gluten free food, the waitress sent out the owner, and he discussed the menu options in detail, as well as telling us the history of the restaurant. I had a vegetarian chalupa, which was very good. My friend had the chicken fajita, and the pinto bean accompaniment was the best. The guacamole was also good. I had a mango margarita, which was reasonably priced, and very good.

“Very tasty!”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

This restaurant has been in business for 55 years, and we can certainly see why. Portion sizes are absoultely huge, and the food is seasoned so well. Our server was very attentive. We will definitely go there again on our next trip to San Antonio.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Got the recommendation to go here from a local and it was GREAT! The tostadas they serve in the beginning were the best chips we've ever gotten at a Mexican restaurant. Food was delicious, there's a patio along the river walk and it was cheap! Perfect for a quick lunch!

“Good service”

4 Mexican Beers with chips and salsa for $18.00 with a view of the river walk. This is the lowest priced place we found on the river walk
