Excellent Food and Drinks

Had the pleasure of dining here with 12 of my co workers. Service was phenomenal, food was superb, and drinks were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant for your next dining experience on the River Walk.

Had a wonderful meal of taco fajitas. It was very good and very tasty. The chips and salsa were also very good. Had a margarita that was simply delicious and so smooth going down. The ambiance of this place is absolutely breathtaking. The restaurant sits right on the river in the Riverwalk area of San Antonio, just a few steps... More

Tableside Guacamole and Dulce Rita are the best in San Antonio. Conveniently located on the River Walk. Gilbert was an awesome waiter. Definitely the best in San Antonio!

My wife and I ate dinner here. Got there around 6:45pm on a Monday night. Seated right away inside, would have been a 25 minute wait for outside. Inside was pretty dark. We had the combo fajitas for two. Lots of food, probably could have fed 3 people. Hostess was not friendly, took us to the table, laid menus down... More

Food was fantastic and much different than the usual cheesy Mexican fair. The helpful staff (Anthony) gave us tips about and of what was good in his city.

With 4 friends I walked into this place which is right on San Antonio's trendy River Walk. We expected a mediocre experience. Our server "Eric" showed up right away and remained attentive (but not intrusive) for the entire meal. He was totally knowledgable about the extensive menu and used florid language when describing his favorite items (which were NOT the... More

Out of the 5 people in our group, there were 2 that did not have a good experience. I ordered the shrimp tacos and they were gross. i have had shrimp tacos that weren't great, but I actually did not eat these. I had to fill up on chips and salsa. The beers were not very cold. The margaritas were... More

Our waiter was clearly drunk, first of all. He could barely stand still or stand up straight. He kept mentioning what a long day he had. But he got our orders in and right, so no harm no foul. The margaritas were just ok for being ranked in the top 10 nationally. My colleague and I weren't impressed.

This was our favorite place to eat along the Riverwalk and there are many to choose from. Food and service were both excellent.

Loved the salsa! The fajitas for two were very filling. The beef was a little too chewy but the chicken was excellent. We received great service and the wait was short for a beautifully warm Thursday evening with lots of people on the Riverwalk.
