I am a relatively new resident of San Antonio, I am from El Paso and for years was pretty disappointed with most ""authentic"" restaurants. My wife actually took me here a few years back and I LOVE it! The food is excellent and service is fantastic. Even when it is extremely busy, the food is out quick, the sodas are excellent, and the drink refills never stop. The best part, though, is their chips and salsa! Hands down, my favorite Mexican restaurant!
