Service
 
These popular Mexican takeout windows (and their sibling, cafe-style taqueria El Chile) are “highly recommended” for their “wonderful interior Mexican” food with influences coming from nearby San Antonio all the way to far-flung Central and Southern Mexico; happy hours are a “favorite” , and since most locations lack indoor seating, the colorful outdoor picnic tables get a lot of traffic.

Underwhelming service this time in but food and drink were consistent. Server didn't bring menus (seems he forgot) until we asked in return to his finally asking what we wanted to drink. Perhaps he was just distracted, but this sort of lapse marked the visit that evening. No worries - we will return.

Always good mostly great. I'd eat here twice a week if it was just a little more affordable.

Everything is great, but I prefer El Alma on Barton Springs. Same great food but with more variety and a prettier patio.
