Tried this for a quick meal on the way from work. Had a drink, a fajita, and some rice. Really good. Enchilladas at a neighboring table looked good and were all gone at the end.

Great find in Crystal city. Mexican style type of food. Friendly staff good service. But they don't have a kids menu. Good value for money and they do very large cocktails. Food was hot cooked well and tasted very nice.

Hungry...but not really so stopped by and had the single chili Relleno and it was amazing. Good spice and char on the outside. Not a big beans and rice guy but theirs was pretty tasty. Worth a stop and comes out like they made it fresh to order.

Stopped by here for dinner on a whim and it did not disappoint. I had the Cadillac Margarita and it was excellent!!!! For dinner, I had the chicken and steak fajitas and it was very good. The steak was very tender. Husband enjoyed his meal as well. We will definitely be back.

As a native San Antonio, Texan, I am snobbish about Tex-Mex. I liked the name of the restaurant, and decided to give the margaritas and beef fajitas a try. They were both much better than expected, the atmosphere was great, and the staff was top notch.

I was in town for the marine corps marathon and needed an early, easy meal with options. This is an average Tex Mex place with what you would normally expect. The quality was that of a chain restaurant - however, is was fast and the price was very reasonable.

Thank Frances C
