Ate here with family on my way out of San Antonio and wasn't pleased. With all the wonderful Mexican food in San Antonio, I hate I wasted my time and money here! It took forever to get our food, and it was cold when we did get it. Our waiter was terrible, he never returned to fill any glasses. I've... More

When an over abundance of Mexican restaurants in the San Antonio area, mediocre just doesn't cut it. Having had a less than perfect experience here a number of years ago, we decided to give it another try. Not a good choice. Upon sitting down and getting our drinks, I asked the server if we get complimentary chips and salsa. He... More

If you want real Mexican food go to the local taco shops but if you want basic Americanized Mexican food this is the place. Of course it's NOT fast Mex, but the items are what one would expect in a Mexican restaurant. Daily specials enchiladas chips and salsa plus fajitas and tortilla soup. I like the LP super bowl. Also... More

I tried a plate of several "classic" Tex-Mex items. Everything was sloppy and warmed over. Greasy, salty, dried-out or soggy. Not good. Once was enough. Might as well have been a lousy buffet. Inattentive wait staff. I hope I just happened to have been there on a bad day and bad time, and that they're typically better.

We had to wait 20-30 min to get our food. Food was okay, but not worth the wait. Service wasn't great either. We didn't get a refill until our food came out, which is what made us realize that our food was taking forever! We were seated by the waitress station. It was a disaster and looked very dirty; bathrooms... More

I was double charged on my debit card & after talking to 3 different managers who all promised to reimburse me, I never got reimbursed. So double check your credit card/debit card statements!

Sunday night we had a party of eleven for dinner. Six of the eleven showed up an hour early because we were from outlying areas. Although we were willing to wait outside, the restaurant wasn’t busy, so they graciously seated us. Can’t possibly get any better, right? Wrong! Our waitress was a young lady named Cecelia, and she was AWESOME!... More

I am so glad that what I wanted was not on the menu but could be made. The rice and tacos had a good favor. The freshness of the lettuce and tomatoes were worth the stop. I like that I was able to get a to go cup of lemonade to go.

good place for a quick meal. Clean and the atmosphere is typical for a Mexican restaurant. The menu is varied and most items are good. Good family restaurant and priced right for kids.
