Great place, away from the "touristy" spots but close enough to walk from the center of everything. The food was delicious and tasted authentic. I would definitely go back. Only complaints were the service was a bit slow with the drinks and the margaritas were smaller than I had hoped.

Very quiet location, nice staff, wonderful empanadas, and great margaritas. Nice surprise, the food comes with salad!

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed it immensely. Very fresh creative food, good service, and great drinks. Not much in the way of decor. this is all about the food.

Place to go for power breakfast or out of town guests. Pretty authentic, capable service, good to very good food. Fun atmosphere in the nearby, non-glitzy part of downtown. A downtown staple.

A low key mexican food restaurant with national reviews that's been here forever! Freshness of ingredients is the foundation of every thing from basic Tex Mex to sophisticated seafood at night. Sunday brunch offers excellent omelets. A San Antonio treausre!
