Great service, great food, great prices! Flor was a fantastic server with a smile. She was extremely efficient, and very personable. The food was fresh and delicious and my only regret was that I could not have a margarita today as I have to be at work in a few hours! Their lunch specials are about $8.50 and include chips, salsa, and choice of soup along with rice and beans!

People - DO NOT sleep on their fideo sopa!! It is beyond words, one of those dishes I’ll be dreaming about for years!!

Chips and salsa - the chips were not great, and although the salsa was spicy, it had a GREAT flavour so I suckered through it.

I’d ordered the tacos de alambre lunch deal, but it wasn’t really anything special. 4 mini tacos with not much of any seasoning, although the beans and rice were pretty good. Also ordered a mixed ceviche to go, came in a red sauce so it isn’t traditional but still had a great taste! Definitely is spicy too though.

I do recommend this place, will look at the individual tacos for next time instead.

The place itself is not that nice inside but the food and service make up for it. Our server was the nicest, friendliest guy. He gave us tips on where to visit in San Antonio. The food was really good! Highly recommend it.

Parking is crazy,but service is fast! Our waitress knows the menu like the back of her hand. The place is not fancy but they work hard. Food was tasty but not hot.

Food was good. Sauce was to spicy but good. The rice didn’t taste good but everything else was good. The restaurant in the outside doesn’t look to inviting. The road messed up
