    Being from San Antonio and loving both Tex-Mex and California style Mexican, my wife and I patiently waited with excitement for La Escondita II to open it's doors. Now we can't wait for them to close. Here's why:||[]||[]We entered only a few days after their "grand opening" and asked to look at a menu. Although the restaurant was recently opened, the staff seemed uninterested and went about their duties like we were not there. There were no other customers in the restaurant, but we decided to give it a try. We thought it peculiar that the table clothes were under a cheap plastic cover and that there were big black and white table numbers pasted underneath the plastic. ||[]||[]Overall the service was exceptionally slow and poor, however the food was edible. Not good by any means, but we told ourselves "at least we tried it"--that was until our bill arrived. I ordered a $6.99 lunch plate and my wife's plate was $9.99. When our bill arrived it was almost $35! After checking we saw we were charged over $8 for iced tea and over $6 for salsa. When I went to speak with the manager I explained we asked for brewed iced tea, but were charged for 4 cans of Arizona. I explained that I was caught offguard with the $35 plus bill, pointing to the $6 charge for salsa, and that nobody mentioned anything about the additional charges. I also said this would probably be the reason why we would not come back. She simply said, "OK", in a very "I could care less" tone and that "tomatoes are expensive." ||[]||[]This is one of the worst restaurants we have visited, not simply because of the mediocre food, but it is one of the only times we felt like we had been "held up" in a restaurant. The total lack of concern for their customers and exceptionally poor service should have this restaurant in a negative cash flow for some time before their doors finally close. At least that's our hope. Now we drive by patiently waiting for the "restaurant for sale" sign to go up.
