4 of us came for lunch. Great to have happy hour on a Saturday! We enjoyed different beers with our enchiladas and tacos. There were many folks enjoying the happy hour so it was very loud, but had a fun energy!

San Antiono Grill the food was delicious however the service was poor. We came in and had to wait 30 minutes before our drink order and then another 45 minutes before he brought them to us. Waited another hour before they took food order but the food came out quickly and was good then the waiter told us they only had to servers on the floor and that's fine however they should let people know that they are short staff and the wait is going to be longer than normal and let the customer decide if they want to stay and wait or leave.

A group of us went for happy hour. The salsa, guac, quesadillas and wingss were all very tasty.

The only negative is none of us could taste any tequila in our drinks.

But a fun place for groups.

I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone!! Despite having made the reservation through Open Table, receiving a confirmation, and a reminder email, when my party of 7 arrived we were told that they had no record of the reservation and could not accommodate us. I was told different stories as to why this occurred. The manager claimed that they had no relationship with Open Table but later said that maybe higher level management did. He offered no apologies or any resolution.
The worst customer service ever!

Waitress added a 20% gratuity to our check for a table of four (myself, wife and 2 kids)....manager says that's normal.

Great place to meet friends and the drinks are wonderful. However, I never get my points when I dine here. They appear in the domed section but the dining amounts are not reflected in my overall total.
