This restaurant shut down about one year ago. The owner moved back to Austin, and the family moved on to other jobs.

Not a great looking new location -- the orange and black exterior paint is not pretty -- but the service was good and the migas were better than many interpretations I've eaten in Fredericksburg. Worth a visit if you want Tex-Mex without the hassle of in-town crowds.

I must say that our experiences here are almost identical to the one "No Stars" had with the exception that we had this experience at least three times. We no longer eat here because the service went from bad to terrible. We had trouble getting waited on and then a long wait for our food to be served. When it was served to us the food was cold. On the last visit we made here, part of our order was never brought to us. We never could get a waiter to our table to ask about the missing part of our order. We just never went back again. It is a shame because we did like the food here at one time.

The food here is really excellent - but the service is always terrible. To the point of people threatening to leave. They are understaffed, folks find your waiter is your cashier is your kitchen and bar staff. Many many times I go ahead and eat here because the food is truly good! And every single time I am irritated at the service. Do not eat here if you are in a hurry. Do not eat here with guests whom you wish to impress. Eat here if you have nothing else to do, can overlook the service, bring a book or something else to do, and chill. I guess the operative word is "chill out" because you cannot expect the servers to keep up. Order anything on the menu for an authentic, good meal. $ - very moderately priced.
