Very good food and drinks! I had the snapper w/brochette and a single brisket taco. I would like to say that it was the best snapper Ive had in a while. The chips and salsa/queso was good too. I would recommend this place to anyone coming to San Antonio.

Amazing! Who would have ever though their "we're coming back here again restaurant" when next in San Antonio would be miles from downtown and the Riverwalk. This place is absolutely huge (and packed) with a great atmosphere and equally terrific food and waitstaff. Do give it a try - you and your guests will be forever grateful that you did.

We went here because the locals recommended it as a place with good food. We arrived early at about 6 PM and this place was crowded. We were put on a waiting list and we were told that it would take about 30 minutes, so we went to the bar for a drink. While we waited one of the other... More

This place always seems busy! It's sooo good, tho! I love their warm salsa and their new avocado sauce! Heir chips are so thin and perfect. I love thin, warm tortilla chips. We started with Queso with Picadillo (aka taco meat) and it was good, just a little thick for the thin chips, but it was fine with me. We... More

Great fajitas. Excellent portion sizes. Prices a little high for this type of place, but the portions are huge and it works out to a decent value. We got a family platter that was plenty for four people. Atmosphere is a little noisy, but there is a lot of activity in the restaurant.

I don't understand how this restaurant isn't rated as the #1 Mexican restaurant in SA. Service is fabulous and the food is even better. A little pricey, but worth it in my opinion.

Quite a wait for a Monday evening, but very nice. Eat in or out. Good service. Many choices from appetizers to entrees. Had spicy grilled shrimp salad...delicious. Beef burrito for member of party also delicious. 3rd member had shrimp fajita who said would come back and order again. Great avocado (spicy) dip with excellent chips made at nearby station. Fun...

Looking for a convenient place for Happy Hour? If you're in the area, Pappasito's Cantina is a hot spot. A tad too loud for me, but you cant beat the margaritas and appetizers!

I had been begging my husband since we moved to San Antonio to take me here and he always found everywhere else to go! Finally, my sister-in-law was visiting grow Kansas and wanted Tex-Mex so we were able to convince him to go! This is by far the best Tex-Mex in San Antonio! Finally something other than Mi Tierra!

First time eating here. Family loved the food and I appreciated the service on ensuring they received the dish they wanted to try. - Had the Steak Fajitas, stuffed shrimp, and table made guacamole. - We had the privilege of trying four different salsas. - It is pricey but we thought it was worth it. Family enjoyed watching the fresh... More
