“When I began researching places to eat in San Antonio, this place kept popping up again and again. The decorations in this place are on point! There are streamers, flags, piñatas. The bright colors just instantly brighten your mood. When you walk in there is a big bright flashing sign to register here and pick up your buzzer. We got there at 7 on a Saturday night and there was a 30 minute wait. ”
