Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.

Friends, residents of San Antonio, selected Paloma Blanca to celebrate our long standing friendship...GREAT CHOICE! Festive decor with topical plants and fountain greeted us. Starting with amazing margaritas, we watched Adan, our server, prepare guacamole olmeca to order ($11.95). We all agreed on the Enchiladas '09 split plate; servings are huge ($31.90 plus $6.00 fee to split). Our dessert, Bunuelo... More

Ate dinner at Paloma Blanca tonight. Service was excellent...prompt, courteous and timely....everything at the right time like they have done it more than once! The food was excellent..not the over fried, heavy fare typically encountered at most Mexican/Tex Mex establishments. Had chili rellenos and enchiladas. The Chili came with a cilantro sauce that was very good, maybe extremely good would... More

The menu is quite comprehensive, lots of choices..almost too many. I sometimes prefer an eatery to simplify the menu and just make the meal impressive and memorable. Paloma Blanca did not disappoint. The chips and salsa were very good starters. I was equally impressed with my meal. A simple chicken fajita dish that was very tasty. My one complaint is... More

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.
