“Twx-Mex the way it should be”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

I and others in the party said that the food was Tex-Mex made the way we remember it before people began to add sour cream and a healthy food influence. The cheese enchiladas were excellent with the correct amount of Chile on the top. The tacos were great and others in the aprty all commented on the food.

“Supper July 5th”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very nice outdoor eating under shade trees with live music. Food was very good and each plate was delivered hot. Service was good and they accommodated a large group....6 adults and 7 children from 6 to 12 years old...very nicely.

“Patio - Okay, Food - Mediocre”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Have to agree with the March 2013 reviews on TripAdvisor. While the outdoor patio certainly adds to the atmosphere, the food is not worth a repeat trip. Too bad, as this place must have once had good food based on the awards on the walls. As the temperature was in the triple digits and flies were abundant outdoor eating had no appeal for us. Inside was pleasant except if one wished to have a quiet conversation which was almost impossible due to the acoustics and resulting high noise level. The food left much to be desired and was only a bit higher than fare found at fast food Tex Mex. Service was only average at best.

“Great Atmosphere, Good Food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Came here with family this past weekend and I enjoyed the atmosphere, plenty of outdoor seating and recent musician playing outside. Good place to bring the family. Food was average. The margarita average as well. I would come back as this place has a play ground for the kids and music/outdoor seating for us.

“Great Mexican food and one of the best patios in SA”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Had been to the Los Barrios on Blanco Rd intown which is great owned by the same family. Stumbled on this one staying north of the city and this is excellent too. Had a puffy taco platter. Great service under the live oaks on the patio. Quick service and excellent food and drink. This place was voted by residents as having the best patio in the city and I can see why. So if you are staying north of the city come by this location off US 281 and 1604.
