We were touring the Missions and decided was time for lunch. Not far from Mission Concepcion, we found parking right away. You walk up and order first inside and then find a seat. We ordered the White Chili Nachos, the Chicken Po Boy, and the Chicken fingers. My husband and I shared the nachos, they were delicious. You need to... More

Had lunch here with party of four. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Menu was pretty varied for such a small place. Food was great and portions were more than we could complete. Fries were to die for but I had to push my plate away to exercise some self control. Will return next time I am in neighborhood.

There hasn't been a time we have visited San Antonio that we haven't made a stop at La Tuna. This restaurant never disappoints.

Fast, friendly and delicious! The varied menu has something for everyone, from nachos to flounder to their wonderful burgers. They are famous for their Cheezy Burger - well named because of 2 cheeses oozing across the top. It is served with delicious battered fries. Order at the counter inside then they deliver your meal to your table. Great place to... More

We stopped by and were very pleased with our experience. We will return in the near future. The Fish Tacos were GREAT. For under $10 you get two large tacos with unique flavor - some of the best we've ever tasted. The only negative was the acoustics - there were 4 men that were very loud. It's a small restaurant...

Looking for something different in SA and a friend of mine recommended "La Tuna", All I have to say was "Thanks for the recommendation!" Great food, great service and great prices. Be sure to be hungry because the portions are huge! So if you want a change of scenery check out this joint at South SA.

I had dinner at La Tuna after a local described the restaurant to me. Its in the historic Lavaca District of San Antonio, so the area is still being developed and renovated. Don't be put off by some of the sketchier looking places along the way getting there. There were several stray animals wandering around, but they didn't bug customers... More
