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.

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

Seriously good enchiladas! I got the marquitos combo, two delicious enchiladas and a taco for 9ish dollars. Really very good. Good margaritas, 3$ beers and good service. As far as Mexican food places go, it was perfect. Lots of good bars right near by too! This is the perfect way to start a Friday night.

Food was good, plenty of food, inexpensive. Wait staff friendly and courteous. Many local people came in during the dinner hour and so you knew the food must be good. A fire truck with the firemen came and ate there! It was not the most attractive place, just simple table and chairs, and great food.

I've had my wallet stolen twice from here! I wish I would've learned my lesson the last time I lost it. Btw: I lost it at the bar. They claim they have no idea where it is (just like last time) and I assume sometime soon my card will be used.

Down in the King William district this place serves authentic TexMex at a reasonable price. I would recommend to anyone staying downtown. An easy walk from the Riverwalk.

Went here after drinks at the local watering hole. Outstanding selection of actual Mexican food not tex-mex. Service was spot on, prices were great. Will definitely return as it was one of the better Mexican restaurants in town.
