This was one of my favorite Mexican restaurants growing up. We would always go for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The last few times I visited the restaurant the service, wait time, and food quality has diminished. It's pretty sad when the waiters and waitresses are...More

Not the cleanest or most modern place, but the food was pretty good. The fajita plate for two was plenty for two people.

Andrea, it's great to hear that you loved the Fajita Plate, especially! I hope to see you back for more. I have to disagree though, my restaurant is very clean. Yours, Marcus, Owner

The restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel staff for dinner. We had a group of 12, so we expected that service was not going to be a challenge. However when we were forgotten it made our experience upsetting. The bus boy took our...More

You really can't go wrong with anything on the menu. But I must say, if there's one thing you should get, it's the queso. Mix in a bit of the homemade salsa for the most delicious thing your taste buds will ever encounter.

Emilee, you can never go wrong with some queso and a little bit of homemade salsa. Excellent recommendation! It makes me happy to see that you enjoy yourself here -- I can't wait to see you back again soon. Yours, Marcus, Owner

Eat here at least monthly, and have never been disappointed. The wait can be lengthy around dinner time, but, well worth it. Great food, drinks, and service.

Kikos enchiladas are the best I've found in this area. I'm from San Antonio originally and crave good Mexican food. Their enchiladas are large, full of cheese, and a very good chili sauce on top. I haven't tried this yet but their fried mushrooms look...More
