To paraphrase a notable quote, "so many taquerias, so little time". This neighborhood breakfast and lunch restaurant can really pack 'em in at times with the crowded parking lot spilling over into the street and up the road. Is the food really that good.?

We have eaten here probably 30 times before we decided to venture out to other areas of the city to try many of the hundreds of taquerias that dot the city map. Why? The food here is rather average and I can say that after having had more than 20 plates of enchiladas, tacos, and other tex-mex fare over the years.

There are so many other places we have found that are more authentic, whatever that means, have tastier food and are priced equivalently or less expensive. When someone tells you that this place is the best, don't you believe them unless they have actually tasted food from the 200 or 300 mexican food restaurants in San Antonio. A not so small feat which I hope to come close to before I succumb to a high cholesterol induced heart attack and slip these earthly bonds. Ratings are a pet peeve of mine. Best means best of all, not just a few. Don't get me wrong, you will surely satisfy your mexican food craving at Aguascalientes, but be aware that there are many other places that can do the same thing or better (and I have been to some 30 or more to prove it, at least to myself).

What drove us to explore elsewhere was consistency, or the lack of it. Sometimes the beef enchiladas here were good, other times, not so much. We were also tired of ordering breakfast tacos to pick-up, getting them home, and finding that we had bean and cheese tacos rather than bacon and egg. And that can be a real bummer when you have your mouth set for just that certain taco type if you know what I mean. Also, the place begins to look more divey as the years pass with an unkempt appearance that begins to generate suspicion as to how that aspect may pertain to the kitchen.

Try this place if you are in the area, but I would not make a special trip for the sometimes good run of the mill food here.

This place rules! Only open from 7am-3pm though, be there for breakfast and lunch. Very good Enchiladas, and authentic Tex Mex. It gets crowded though, but not enough for a Portlandia brunch special.
