“Worst food ever. Save your money and stomach.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

This is the first "terrible" review I've written, just FYI.

This is the absolute worst meal I have ever had. Ever! The only good part was the margaritas we had before dinner. We took my wife and her family here for our first time at this restaurant.

I originally ordered menudo, they were out. I settled on fish tacos. They taste like wet dog. Literally! I am lucky to have not been sick! I couldn't even finish them. Thank god they were out of menudo!

The rest of the meals were also terrible. Plastic cheese enchiladas, dry chicken tacos and my wet dog tacos.

Stay away! Stay away! Do not eat here! If you ever go, just drink. The only bright spot was our waitress "Jazz" (yes, that's her name). She was great and I felt bad she had to even serve this food.

Good luck!

“Great Mexican Food but long wait for large party”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

The food was delicious at this NW San Antonio location and we had excellent service once we were seated. Large parties beware of excessively long wait times on the weekends. We waited almost a hour and a half when we were initially told about 45 minutes. It was too late and too complicated for all of us to leave and travel to another restaurant so we waited...and waited! Overall, a great choice for Mexican food in a town with so many choices!

“fun place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2011

Locals suggested it. Very pleasant fun atmosphere to eat it. Good Tex Mex food. Nothing special. Good service. Average price. Good parking. Probably enjoyed the atmosphere as much as the food.
