I didn't think I was going to like this restaurant. But the flavors were so good. I had el Dante which was beef taco and pork tamale. Nice presentation and enjoyed the red and green salsa served with the chips.

My wife is a Baylor grad and introduced me to this place. I've been there several times and never had a bad meal. Everything is great from the drinks to the service.
