Another good TexMex place in Boerne! I've eaten here numerous times since they've opened and enjoyed every meal. The menu is typical TexMex as is the decor and furniture which match the prices - cheap. Service is always fast. I think they are cashier based...- pay at the register, but I still don't know! Everytime I ask, they take my payment at the table, but I guess they wouldn't have a prominent register if it wasn't pay at the counter. Good, dependable, TexMex. I'll be back.More

My favorite is the shredded chicken chimichanga. They offer lunch specials for $8. We also had the chills relleno that was very good too. Cute atmosphere with the cabana feel. Great service. Good iced tea.

The reason to eat here are the soups. The pozole and tortilla soups are wonderful. They were fresh and contained lots of engrediants. I ordered a bowl of pozole and a shredded chicken enchilada, and just to round the meal out, I got an order...of french fries. It doesn' get any better than that in America!More

Thought we had just missed their 'rush' when we found most tables still waiting to be cleared and cleaned. Once seated, each of the three observed servers came by to ask for our drink order. Food and drinks were typical and average. Server checked on...us while we were eating, then completely ignored us with empty plates on the table. Waited for a check; finally got up and went to register. Cashier seemed dismayed as our bill had been cleared without being paid. Ditto for another couple that came up behind us. Hard to believe they hadn't figured out they had problems.More

Centinela is a typical Mexican food place, but unfortunately lacks in flavor, spice and flavor. Salsa is good but beyond that it is difficult to find much else. Service attitude is not so good either!
