Great margarita but very disappointed in chicken fried steak. Gravy was not real thick and steak could have been pounded out better. Wouldn't have it again.

It's located in the Alamo Quarry Market area. The appetizer of tableside guacamole was a first and very good. The black and bleu quesadilla were great. The complimentary white chocolate and pecans wrapped in corn husks was a pleasant surprise.

My husband said he didn't want Mexican food again and picked this place because we had never heard of it. I laughed when we got the menu and it was Mexican. It was delicious, not your typical Tex mex fair. I highly recommend this place.

It didn't look like it had private dining, but I would think they would set up tables to accommodate 25. Like everyone else has said, call first.
