I lived in san antonio for 12 years, and this is the first that really reminds me of it. Just adjacent to groceries, you have to walk through to find it. Its the real deal.

This was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have eaten at outside of Texas. Tamales baked in corn shucks, salsa with onions, even the beans and rice were stellar. Delicious and reasonably priced. Try it.

Amazing food. It is a hole in the wall, so don't expect great service, or even English language. But prices are great, portion are large, and taste is amazing. Shrimp soup is something!
