Our group of six was seated promptly for lunch today and the service was excellent! The daily lunch special was a blackened fish with garlic served with rice, but they substituted beans at our request. The blackened fish taquitos were a favorite, although my nephew preferred the special. I opted for the fried oysters and shrimp, which were good but the oysters were very small, which is typical this time of year. Did I mention the portions were generous?

Went for lunch and this place was packed! The staff was short staffed when we went and they were still really nice and very helpful. Did not have to wait long for anything. And the food was AMAZING!

Very good authentic mexican food. We enjoyed it and would eat there again. My husband ordered the chile relleno and it was huge, he couldn't even finish it

Really expected more this far south of Texas and close to the border. Agree with one reviewer who mentioned the salsa was to much like tomato sauce - my husband compared it to tomato soup. No hint of heat. Tried the queso - don't. It's just Velveeta like product with no heat either. Hubby ordered blackened fish dish. He said it was good. I ordered the Chicken Mexican Plate - it was just ok, nothing special. Beans were so-so. Very loud, missed the music! Seated right away, waiter was very prompt, teas were good and served in big glasses. The plates were Fiestaware. Very different. Overall just average.
