Friendly and timely service, and tasteful homemade food. Large burritos bonus! Easy to find right near the Walmart and HEB.

Excellent food and service. I had the mini tacos and a side of guacamole. The salsa was amazing and the house wine was very good.

We went on a Friday night. It was not busy but it still took a while to get served. The chips and salsa were good while we waited. The food was not good. Not disgusting or horrible - it was just there and not good....More

Just passing through and stopped because it has a high rating. Nice people, good salsa & chips...but they are very understaffed. We had a party of 11. Waited about 10 min for them to clean a table for us. Ordered and our food came out...More

Food was okay but charro beans and rice a little bland. Salsa good and served in nice big container. Service good. Good sized menu. We sold go back next time passing through.

The guacamole is fresh and tastes great! Tacos and queso may not be the best measure of a Mexican restaurant but they were good and the salsa wasn't as bland as most restaurants. Small bathroom though, and I couldn't get the door to lock.

This is a pretty good little local Mexican joint. We especially enjoyed their breakfast offerings. Service was fine, prices are good.

Stopped between Houston and San Antonio. Salsa spicy and fresh, various meats in tacos all good, and service pleasant. Good road trip choice.

We eat here often. On the weekends the family serves menudo. The carnitas are tender. The huge burritos satisfy and hungry person. Taco salad is good. There is a lunch time buffet. You need to ask for extras, I.e. sour cream, extra onions, etc.
