Great Mexican food!

This is a classic mom and pop Mexican restaurant. Lots of great Tex Mex items on the menu. Nothing flashy, just great food. Way better than anything on the riverwalk!Add it to your list.

We were informed by a local that we needed to come here before going home to Houston. He was right! There's a reason they are so highly rated. The food is delicious and the service is great. We'll definitely be back '

I don't want to totally bash this place but I had a really bad experience when I visited. I won't get into specifics because I don't feel that would be fair. I will say that many of my friends do love this place and I did have a very friendly server. I may return to give them another chance.

The breakfast is very good. Refried beans are EXCELLENT! I love to stop in here when riding my bike in the area. Everything I have eaten here is always very good and fresh.

When we discovered this place several years ago, we decided to make it a point when we come to San Antonio, to be sure to come here for a real feast. This food is very authentic and freshly made. The food served is as if the owner asks what you would like to have, and it is prepared especially just... More

We found Tito's from the TripAdvisor app. Thought we would give it a try. The restaurant didn't have any thrills with their decor, but the food was excellent. Would recommend to anyone in the area to try.

Terrible service, ten minute wait to get check only after speaking too loudly to a wait person at an adjoining table, ours was no where in sight. Food was fair, Plates too crowded with plain food; very little taste or seasoning's. Only bright spot is their bar... Good margaritas
