Fodor's Review

Nuevo Mexican and traditional Tex-Mex flavors collide at this family-owned restaurant, a much-loved King William–district mainstay since 1967. Owner Dona Marie's mole enchiladas shine here, with the extra-sweet but smoky sauce designed to be sopped up by homemade corn tortillas. Shrimp and fish play a major role, bringing new life to tacos, nachos, and chiles rellenos. And if you've never had a breakfast taco, this is the place to try one in any of almost a dozen ways.

A full bar during dinner and an outdoor dining patio seal the deal on a quintessential San Antonio eating experience.

Best Southwestern/Mexican in San Antonio

We ate breakfast twice, lunch twice and dinner three times in one week!! Food and service were excellant. Dinner very upscale Southwestern. 25 years in the restaurant business, this is one of my favorites
