Chris and Raquel were a lot of fun to hang out with while my wife and I had drinks. We didn't eat there so I can't comment on the menu.
Our group of 5 needed lunch, in a hurry. Long waits at the other spots. Did not have high expectations. Surprise.....good food at a great price and served quickly. The best I've ever had...no, but was pretty good. Would return and that says it all.
After checking in at several of the fancier Old Town restaurants that had long waits, we stopped in front of Alamo. My granddaughter (who is only 3) was starving and needed to eat pronto. We sat down and ordered not expecting much. The food was reasonably priced, quite tasty, but most of all the service was wonderful. The manager (owner?)... More
If you what some time out from exploring Old Town then this is the place to drop in to. The drinks and food are inexpensive while the service is great. Highly recommended!

We ordered at the walk up... More

I agree with most of the reviews, it's a great people watching spot however, tourists may find this place lacking. If you're looking for a cheezy tourist experience keep looking. We found the service to... More
I am Mexican..the Alamo is not authentic. The food here is bland, canned beans, bottled salsa (more like tomato) canned enchilada sauce. The nachos were not cheesy enough. Poor service. Quality is bad, not worth your money, it is better to eat at Taco Bell or del taco. If you want authentic mexican food, look for hole in the wall... More
When visiting Old Town, the Alamo is an EXCELLENT choice: (1) If you're looking for an inexpensive, casual, Mexican non-fast food type of restaurant, and/or; (2) You only have a very limited amount of time to satisfy your hunger (as an alternative to waiting long to be seated and served, which is to be expected with nearly all popular restaurants...
