I asked my hotel's front desk agent for a recommendation for a place with local flavor and she steered me to the right place. I knew when it was packed on a Wednesday night, it had to be good. Not fancy in appearance, the Texmex selections were broad. My chicken chalupas were packed with fresh contents.

This was the best dinner far. My wife had a vegetable fajita that was fantastic. My entire was also excellent. This was one of those places where you see food going by to another table and are constantly asking yourself "What is that? That looks good..." Our waiter was also excellent and friendly.

This was by far the best Mexican restaurant we visited on our US road trip around Texas. Margaritas were fab, tangy, and not the usual sweet sickly syrup. There were good vegetarian choices on the menu and staff were attentive but not pushy. Would certainly recommend. Try the fried chillis - delicious with a kick of heat.

We lucked out this trip - found a fabulous Mexican food place on the south side that was clearly THE place to be on a Friday night. Worth the 45 minute wait...This is a great, authentic Mexican restaurant that isn't your normal Tex-Mex. It's crazy crowded and fun, but super loud. Don't go here for a quiet dinner or a... More

One of the better Mexican restaurants I have been to anywhere. Worth the short walk from the convention center. The salsa was authentic. We had lunch and the portions were generous.

I heard this restaurant is really good. I gave it a 3 star since it was fair (probably because this one is in an airport)? Excellent Spicy Maria's though! I was tired of Mexican food so I ordered the grilled chicken sandwich. YUCK! You go to Mexican, be sure to order Mexican. ha
