I stopped at this place at least 3-4 times a week over an 8 week period for lunch and it was consistently excellent every visit. The food was always flavorful, hot and quickly served. I'm super picky with Mexican food and this is some of the best that I have had and cannot wait to get back to San Antonio... More

I've never had a bad breakfast taco here, and the decor definitely improved with the last remodeling project. The service has never been particularly friendly, but it's a decent breakfast spot and the prices are reasonable.

One of San Antonio's best Mexican restaurants. If you're visiting Ft. Sam Houston you definitely need to visit this establishment for some authentic Mexican food!

In my opinion the best places to get mexican food in san antonio are the small mom and pop joints. stay away from the national chainstore type restaurants. this is definitely one of them.

We live a couple of blocks from here and there breakfast is wonderful and very well priced. This is a true Mexican Restaurant...breakfast tacos, make fresh... Breakfast is their best meal, lunch and dinner are good... Great value for the money, you can get two eggs, bacon, two pancakes and coffee for six bucks. Great service, limited seating

We are visiting San Antonio and everyone has told us that it's the best city for authentic Mexican food. Everyone has given us names of places on the Riverwalk but we're not heading there till Friday when it gets warmer! It seems as if there's a Tex-Mex restaurant on every block, so how does one choose...check out Trip Advisor, of... More
