Was upset about the wait in the drive thru but it was because they made our tacos fresh.....

Love this place. Everything is always on point. I've noticed that during covid they've been using only disposable plates and utensils. May seem small, but the added expense can really add up for a small restaurant. Their efforts to stay safe speaks volumes to me..and as I mentioned the food is always delicious

Champurrado drink brings back memories of abuelitas cooking where you can taste the love of this lost tradition!! I got country rancheros taco (guisados here) and they used actual sausage instead of that fake bologna meat so it was really tasty too. Not bad on the chorizo and beans tacos too. I will look forward to visiting this place again

It had been a long while since we had been there so I took my mother and my children. Menu prices have drastically gone up (enchilada plates are not $10.00+). I ordered the Milanessa plate (was on special) and it was so tough to eat. The tea and chips w/ salsa were great thou. We won't be returning.

First time visit tonight at 11:30 pm. Open 24 hrs!! The food was fantastic. I had a pastor taco that was one of the best I have eaten in San Antonio. The cheese enchiladas are great too. And because of the social distancing they are also serving alcohol (with food order) too! Currently only open for drive though or take out.

Yesterday I tried this place for the first time after driving by it forever. Went in got for beef and egg breakfast tacos was charged $17.76 for them, I don't know about you all but that's way too expensive in my opinion. When I open the tacos some of the beef looked undercooked, they were very very greasy and one of the tacos was like half a taco.The worst part is just about 1 and half hours afyer eating them (I was starving and ate them regardless) I started getting stomach cramps and pain and nauseas. The Nausea passed by noon but this is now my second day with diarrhea because of this place. They really need a health inspection done here. Needless to say I will never be a customer here again.

When it comes to serving you this place makes sure you get what you want regardless, of the way you got there. They serve you to the fullest and are happy to. The enchiladas are delicious but, their home made strawberry cheesecake is to die for.

Thought this was a good place but took one bite of my steak that I was hoping was well done, only to find it red raw inside. I recommend not being open 24hr if you need a kid to be your chef. My girlfriend's tortillas were cold and I keep getting ugly faces by all the workers every time I give this place a chance.

Review №27

I went there with three friends and all four of us had the same opinion, "very poor quality of food". I ordered one beef fajita taco and one barbacoba taco. Both of my tacos tasted like they had been refrigerated and reheated too many times. The waitress disappeared. The owner walking around clueless. Don't waste your good money on bad food.

I have been there a few times, and have thought the food average, but on my last visit it was perfect. I had the salsa verde chicken enchiladas which were very tasty. The restaurant is open 24 hours and has a small bar. The service is usually excellent as it's usually not very crowded.

Review №36

Meh food.... I ordered a chicken fried steak, gravy was like water and it was more like milanesa than a thick juicy chicken fried steak is supposed to be. The crust was thin and fell off, it tasted better with the hot sauce than the gravy. I guess everyone else has their own opinion as there are other dishes there, but I don't think I'll be going back. It's a bit over priced.

The tortilla soup was awesome! Huge bowel, super hot temp and filled with shredded chicken, avocado and cheese! The cashier took care of us :-) we won't come back at night...the bar music is SUPER loud and it was a mix of heavy metal, the doors and some other crap...my head hurt when we left! It's nothing too nice, but the food was good,

Order the double cheeseburger and double cheesburger delicious it surely was!!! I was looking for a late night meal and was not expecting the food to be sooo damn good. Service was excellent!!! And the kicker to make the meal was the fact they had kareoke and music in the back ground!!! Awesome late night place

Review №55

This place is only convenient cause it open 24 hours. The service is slow. The food is not good. And if anything goes wrong they cant do anything for you unless the owner is there. The music is way too loud even if you sit as far as possible from the bar section. The place is not clean either. How does this place still open.

Look ladies and germs. This place does have a history of poor health scores and has been seen on the news for various reasons. But don't let the negative deter you from coming here. I LOVE this restaurant because of their tacos. I haven't tried their dishes but the tacos. Bruh. They would have to be ONE of the best tacos in San Antonio. And I'm a big guy and I like tacos and have tasted tacos from different restaurants. The one taco that tops on my taco list is the bacon and egg taco. Guys. This taco has chunks of bacon. Not to salty and not overwhelming and egg that is scrambled with the bacon not egg then topped with bacon bits or a slice of bacon. Ew. No. Bacon scrambled in the egg. Giving flavor that blows the mind. And the flour torti-las are not to thick or thin. So delicious. Another taco is the chicharron taco. Bomb a## taco. Big sliced chicharron smothered in the ranchero sauce. Messy yet satisfying. You want good tacos at a good price. This place is the one to go. Oh and did I mention it's 24 hours? Probably not. Yeah it's 24 hours. So you hungry for a bacon and egg taco or chicharron at 2 in the morning and don't feel like making it yourself. Come here. You won't be disappointed.

Honestly I have Nothing bad to say about this place. The waitress was so kind to my family and i. My order arrived fast and hot and then I was even able to grab me and my boyfriend a beer Quickly from the bar in there. It's a very chill environment. Very spacious & beautifuly decorated. there are pictures modeling our culture in bright colors for that Hispanic feel also in the bar next door u are able to put any song you'd like to hear on a jukebox which is really cool because not to many places have that Anymore. The food (Caldo De Pollo) was so delicious I left a tip and I will definitely definitely be going back again soon thank you to the staff working there on Sep.10.2019 for making us all feel welcome because we were having A bad day and you guys made our night special.

Came here for lunch. It's an old school Mexican restaurant. Restrooms were need of cleaning. The food is highly priced. There was only one waitress for 7 tables. (Basically the whole restaurant). You get refills on tea. (That was good). The food was okay. Sweet tea was not sweet. . But you can view the restaurant from the main road. Parking is good and free. If you like this kind of place. Go. I'll wait a while before I go again. Maybe longer...Ok, good luck .

EeWent one day and the food was amazing! We ordered the mini asada tacos..Went the next day and the food was not tasty at all, also waited an hour total to get our food. First we waited about 30 minutes in drive thru and no one had even taken our order yet so we went inside and had to wait another 30 minutes. So we spent an hour total waiting there.

Wait staff was very attentive but had to wait too long for the food. The caldod res was disappointing, not enough flavor or spices. But the tacos de chicarron in salsa were very good. The corn tortilla I had was very good, hand made, soft and tasty but the flour tortillas were not so good. Kids chicken nuggets were a winner, especially the country gravy, they beat out Cains. Overall would visit again and try their breakfast .
