Being from San Antonio, I can appreciate good Mexican food. I'm also a big fan of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives, so I definitely wanted to check out what this place had to offer. I got the famous fish tacos, and was impressed by how fresh...More

I'm sure other reviews have mentioned that this place does get a wait sometimes. I like the fact that it has a large parking lot. Once you do sit down the food arrives fairly quickly. The menu has a lot of options and I found...More

This is really worth the wait, but if you are in a hurry, be there within a half hour of their opening. It gets busy quickly, especially during the work week.

It may be a small wait to get in, because this place is always busy -- which is a testament to great food. Quality is consistently high, portions are ample and the servers are a pleasant group. This is a great place for lunch or...More

They obviously used the best and freshest ingredients to make every dish. We found something delicious for everyone in our group from 14-42. Multiple vegetarian options were absolutely delicious. Chile con queso was our favorite

Never had a bad meal there. It is what I’d think is authentic Mexican. The MOLE sauce is outstanding. Always busy so be prepared to wait. Unless you pick the right time.....like maybe at 3:00pm on a Tuesday.

I was surprised how long the wait was for a Thursday. We opted to take the food to go. It was so good. Great flavor authentic. Definitely going back to try more.

We arrived about 8PM on a Wednesday and despite being told there'd be a 45-minute wait, we were seated within 15 minutes. The server was prompt with drinks, chips and salsa. The chips were largely broken and underwhelming, but the salsa was very good. We...More

Most definitely. They have full liquor service, including high-point craft beers from Utah and sometimes elsewhere.
