  • Stephen R.I looked at the tips and thought it may be people who are overly critical, but the food is overpriced for what you get. Save the headache and head for great Mexican food in the mercado

    33333 by Stephen R.


  • Franco C.I'm pretty sure our waitress is drunk. Table Asked for a quesadilla and she never ordered it. But the marts are good enough to explain why she's drunk

  • Mary L.Great food...great service

  • John J.Gotta try that flan..... It's awesome stuff.

    55555 by John J.


  • John J.Some people complain just to hear themselves do it. I'm not one of those folks. The enchiladas de pollo con mole was pretty good. It was not as spicy as I like but still very good. Thumbs up!

    55555 by John J.


  • Frank K.Do not eat here. Bland food and really slow service.

    22222 by Frank K.


  • Stuart B.The waitress was awful, the food was cold, and the experience was overall terrible. By time the "frozen" margaritas arrived, they were watered down and warm. Do not come to this place!

    11111 by Stuart B.


  • Ryan M.Don't bother, unless you love bland food and terrible service.

    22222 by Ryan M.


  • Robert M.Drinks are okay, but take your appetite somewhere else

    33333 by Robert M.


  • Brian G.Turns out their "happy hour" specials were only good at the bar, not upstairs or on the riverwalk - buyer beware

    33333 by Brian G.


  • Gunes A.If you wanna eat something big and fast, that is your spot. A bit pricer.. OH well, It is riverwalk area afterall...

    55555 by Gunes A.


  • Nomin A.Not great place!! The food took so long and and it wasn't good at all. I have had better. Choose other Mexican restaurant!

    33333 by Nomin A.


  • Courtney V.Service was crap. I had to ask if we still had a waiter.

    11111 by Courtney V.


  • Cheyenne H.Some of the worst Mexican I've had in a while... horrible salsa, nasty Chile Relleno and yucky enchiladas! Soooooooooooo disheartening- keep walking and sont look back!

    22222 by Cheyenne H.


  • Steve H.Dog Friendly! Easy to modify the menu too

    55555 by Steve H.


  • Kristina H.Don't feed the ducks!! The host will get you!

    33333 by Kristina H.


  • Sharon P.Yuuuk! The salsa was bland and tasteless!! Chips were not homemade. Our waiter was incredibly annoying!!

    22222 by Sharon P.


  • Scott D.Don't eat here! Food is blander than bland! Service sucks! Done eating and still don't know who the server is!

    22222 by Scott D.


  • Brittnee L.Lunch specials are inexpensive and taste delicious. Loved the cheese queso.

    55555 by Brittnee L.


  • Lacey S.Food was fabulous...everything you would expect at a Mexican restaraunt and more...even live music!

    55555 by Lacey S.


  • Ryan R.Horrible service, over priced blan food.. Reminds me of an expensive as fuck taco cabana

    22222 by Ryan R.


  • Kristen M.Ask for Jose! He's so awesome, we came back 2 nights in a row!

    55555 by Kristen M.


  • The San Antonio R.Great enchiladas, beef and chicken tacos. Tortilla soup on a chilly day is the best. Iced down buckets of beer in their Naked Iguana Lounge are a great Riverwalk value!

    55555 by The San Antonio R.


  • Amanda B.Service was pretty slow. And shrimp quesadilla was spicy!

    33333 by Amanda B.


  • Lisa J.This place would not let our party of four sit at a 6 chair table that had been empty waiting on a bigger party. There were at least 6 empty tables and they just didn't want to accommodate us!!!

    22222 by Lisa J.


  • Jenn S.The only redeeming quality of this place is that it is on the river. The food is very bland.

    33333 by Jenn S.


  • Richard B.Get a table by the river. The chili relano are amazing. And don't forget to take a river cruise. Well worth twice what you pay.

    55555 by Richard B.


  • Tristan P.The food is extremely bland and boring. Service was okay, not the best. Just enjoy the chips, salsa, a beer and the scenery outside and you'll be okay.

    33333 by Tristan P.


  • Melissa R.Hope you read the reviews before sitting down..

    22222 by Melissa R.


  • Tricia R.Don't eat here. The shrimp enchiladas were not good. Sopapillas were drowning in a syrupy sauce. Go to Boudro's next door.

    22222 by Tricia R.


  • Aaron P.The salsa is very good. Get the Rita on the rocks with sugar.

    55555 by Aaron P.


  • Michael F.Worst Mexican food on the river walk!! Nothing redeemable!

    22222 by Michael F.


  • Betty G.The food is so delicious! Great prices too.

    55555 by Betty G.


  • Denise W.Carlo is the best server!! Full of personality and excellent service! Ask for him!

    55555 by Denise W.


  • Kim F.Free wifi password is seven 1's! Everybody always forgets lol :-) Christine is so great! Awesome customer service!

    55555 by Kim F.


  • Lauren M.Good margaritas, but food wasn't that great. And they don't give free tortillas. I thought the food was overpriced for the taste and quality.

    33333 by Lauren M.


  • Brett C.Pretty awful. Other places are worth the wait.

    33333 by Brett C.


  • carmen r.Great margaritas

    55555 by carmen r.


  • Joseph A.My date and I ate here and he and I were very satisfied

    55555 by Joseph A.


  • Leona H.I'd say bad service but there's no service at all. If you want to sit and watch the river for free, it's good, so long you are not hungry!

    33333 by Leona H.


  • Robert G.Don't ask for a lemon or a cosmo.

    33333 by Robert G.


  • Michelle S.be prepared to wait an hour for your food! good drinks though & nice view

    55555 by Michelle S.

  • Scion AdvisorRiverwalk royalty stop here for the views of the famed path, large portions makes it great for any cozy first date.

    55555 by Scion Advisor


  • RoyceThis place was home to my absolute worst dining experience ever...hands down. Yes there is no wait but why do you think that is? This place truly is staying open from over flow of other restaurants.

    33333 by Royce


  • Mike H.All other places have long waits. Quick service and seating here!

    55555 by Mike H.


  • Ricky V.The sewage pipe burst, but the food was still good... We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

    33333 by Ricky V.


  • Tony B.Known for their Horni Margarita. Happy hour Mon-Fri 3pm-6pm | Reverse Happy Hour Sun-Thurs 10p-close & Fri and Sat 11pm- close | Naked Iguana Wings are great! Lemon Pepper, BBQ, and Traditional Hot

    55555 by Tony B.


  • Kim R.Food is bland and the brown sauce poured all over everything ruins any bit of flavor from the food. Overpriced and the drinks aren't very strong. Margaritas come from pre-made pitchers and machines.

    33333 by Kim R.


  • Benjamin S.You must have the chimichangas!!!

    55555 by Benjamin S.


  • Susy S.I didn't like it. I ordered fajitas and got shredded beef.

    22222 by Susy S.


  • Dwayne C.Good PiƱa Coloda.

    55555 by Dwayne C.


  • Steve M.gotta tell you - you could do a lot worse. The margaritas were awesome and we ordered the special for two - it would have easily fed four people and I am a healthy eater. The platter was cooked to per

    55555 by Steve M.


  • Jason R.Try anything with the poblano sauce. It's delicious!

    55555 by Jason R.


  • Craig K.Typical River Walk dining -- good people watching; nice selection of over-priced drinks; bland, over-priced Mexican food that'll hook plenty of tourists but attract few local regulars.

    55555 by Craig K.


  • Luis B.Baja fish tacos are banging!

    55555 by Luis B.


  • Chris K.when other places have long lines, eat here for good, quick food.
