“Good food. No happy hour all day on Wednesday as shown here. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

We had the fish tacos and fajitas which were very good. No free chips and salsa like most Mexican restraunts. Also $6.25 for a half melted margarita (16oz) is too much. No military discount.

“What a nice surprise. ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

Stumbled upon this place on Tuesday, killing time with family, and am I glad we did. Guisado tacos were excellent! Chicken tacos and green chile cheeseburgers were delicious. As were the guacamole and the salsa verde. Only drawbacks were the iced tea was very weak and, being a warm day, and outdoor seating, could have used more air flow.

“Great tacos!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Really good tacos & salsa. Fish tacos and beef fajitas tacos were some of the best I've had. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the atmosphere!

“Good eats & drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

Good tex mex cuisine...sit on the patio and enjoy the beautiful weather in Gruene, Texas. Margaritas are tasty and cold. A little pricey but fair. Within walking distance from Gruene Hall, tons of shops and Bubba's Big Deck (on the River).

“If ya have a Hankering for Mexican Food!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

The food we had was really pretty good. The outside seating was crowded. Inside was much too loud. At the back, stairs lead down to quieter outside seating at picnic tables under trees & umbrellas. Not a large menu but what we had was good. If your looking for big city type Mexican Food, this isn't the place for you. People seemed to be enjoying the drinks, as it was happy hour.
You order your food at a counter, then find a seat and they'll bring your food to you.
Thought we were going to have a view of The Guadalupe River but as it turned out.. It's close by but not visible from here.
