I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
New Product Line is a Big Hit! Using Taco Cabana's (TC's) own website for “feedback”, I previously scorched TC for the extreme lack of customer service at this location. Management has since corrected the issues with new personnel who are highly courteous and fast. More importantly, since my feedback TC has done something that is extremely hard to do successfully - they revamped TC's product line to the point that my family considers TC to be the fast-food restaurant of first choice. The new products include (1) high quality "chicken flautas" with all the condiments, (2) beef "street tacos" and the real surprise that we eat for breakfast or dinner, (3) chopped "brisket tacos" on corn tortilla (corn is our particular preference). It is rare that the consecutive unrolling of new products are home runs! Great job TC management!! Now, if you can only get your beef fajitas back to backyard BBQ quality that TC was originally known for, TC would own the fast-food market!

If you are looking for authentic Puerto Rican food, this is not the restaurant for you!! I am Puerto Rican, raised in Chicago. Their Jibarito had roast pork on it, they would not make it with steak. Their accapurias were horrible and they charged $2.50 for one. In NY or Chicago one is $.75. Their prices are way too high! These are simple dishes they are serving. The rice had little flavor I could tell they didn't use sofrito an they used little sazon. The ropa vieja was average. The cooks are Mexican. Not to say Mexicans can't cook good PR'n food but generally we season food diferently. I wouldn't get asada tacos from a restaurant that is advertised as a Puerto Rican Restaurant, hopefully you get the point! Don't go there with high expectations, especially if you are familiar with PR'n cuisine.
