We had great margaritas and an excellent dinner here on a crowded Friday night. We had to wait about 25 -30 minutes but it was worth it! The chips and sauces are very good. We had the tableside quacamole for an appetizer. They make this right at your table. We put everything in it except the pepper. I think it's... More

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. The ambiance was perfect. Service was very friendly. Great margaritas. Fresh, tasty, and visually appealing dishes. They were very informed on gluten allergies and were very helpful to my wife with celiac disease.

We attended a wedding brunch at Paloma Blanca. The food was spectacular - great chilaquiles, tamales and chicken enchiladas. When I'm back in SAT, I plan to visit to try out the regular menu. Only problem, given the setup to serve buffet style with tables set up for 100+, was that the flow was difficult to maneuver. Not a very... More

Very good Mexican cuisine just off Broadway, near University of Incarnate Word. The "Enchilada Verdes" was very good with two enchiladas covered in a good tomatillo sauce. The "Enchiladas Dimas" was even better with shrimp and mushroom enchiladas in a white wine sauce.

Stopped here over the weekend for a late lunch. Great patio seating, and extensive gluten free menu. We have the table side guacamole and they brought a separate huge bowl of gluten free chips. So appreciated! And it was delicious. Really great house margaritas and all our food was delicious - gluten free fajitas with soft corn shells, shrimp fajitas... More

My go-to place for a leisurely and egg-ceptional weekend brunch. Elegant dining inside and relaxing dining outdoors on good weather days. If I had any complaints, it would be the service. It can be slow and waitstaff is not particularly friendly but the great food keeps me coming back, nonetheless.

Paloma Blanca is always fun. We go here for celebration dinners and just casual lunches. The bar area has nice seating and is festive. The food is wonderful. My favorite is the roasted pepper salsa and the shrimp quesidilla. They also have great soup. Francisco is so much fun as a waiter, we had a wonderful lunch there last week... More

Always a pleasure to stop in at this '09 eatery on Broadway with its cozy ambiance and delightful Mexican dishes. Love the restaurant semi-formal, well decorated interior with the ambiance of a cozy, comfortable neighborhood favorite. Almost friendly, but satisfactory service started us out with a flaming plate of queso fundido with shrimp slathered on fresh corn tortillas. Just stupendous!... More
