We went at the end of an evening after a barge ride on the river. We had gotten a little chilled and soup hit the spot. The restaurant was getting ready to close but never rushed us and we enjoyed it very much.

This restaurant has one of the best happy hours around for margaritas. They have a vast selection of margaritas and their house margarita is not too shabby either. The food is fresh tasting and their free chips and salsa are never ending.

A real mexican food place with atmosphere. Fairly large place but cozy. It has a seperate room for larger parties and a small bar area for a Margarita or cold beer. Food is good Tex-Mex and is served hot and fresh. Several types of Margaritas and mexican beers, not just corona. They were very busy on our visit Friday night... More

Admittedly Friday evening is busy, but we arrived at the restaurant about 7:00 pm, the conclusion of Happy Hour, and the host was on the phone, and clearly conflicted over seating us, or continuing his conversation. At one point, he put the phone down and said that he would get someone to us right away. After a bit more phone... More

I love this place. Nice atmosphere, very good Beef Fajitas, and love their Chips & Salsa. Love their Margaritas. If you need to go to the restroom, you better be the size of a toddler. That restroom is slightly better than a prison restroom. Lol... But seriously. I recommend this place especially for business meetings or if you are on... More

Wow, who would have thought in San Antonio you could find a gem of a restaurant like Tomatillo's. Great place to eat. We walked right in no lines to wait in. That's great. My family and I were seated immediately. Our waitress Lorena was top notch. We never needed to ask for anything. She kept our glasses filled, and our... More

We got name of this restaurant from our hotel after asking for their favorite local restaurant. They were right. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant had plenty of customers yet there were still tables available. Service was quick and courteous. We told our server (Paul) that we were from Georgia and he was nice enough to provide us... More

Tomatillo's is still one of the best Tex Mex restuarants in Texas. I drive 3 hours to get there and my mouth waters more the closer I get. The service is excellent, the food tastes great and the prices are not that bad. Any time I am close to San Antonio, I always scedule a stop at Tomatillo's.
