If you like average food and an owner who is bellicose and rude, this is your place. Was with a group of men having breakfast and the owner was very rude and acting like some kind of tough guy. We are locals and all agreed...we will never come back, and while we were waiting for our food three other men got up and left. Obviously the owner has no idea how to treat or talk to his customers and doesn't seem to care about loosing them.More

We wanted to go for dinner and discovered they are closed on Sunday and Monday. Just so you know or call ahead.

Each year when we visit family for the Thanksgiving or Christmas Holidays we make a solid effort to visit Sandra's Cantina. The visit this past week did just as we expected -- a fine F&B experience. The freshness of the food and high quality levels...of service make this a worthwhile visit for anyone in the area.More

This place was recommended to me. They have indoor seating as well as a large covered outdoor patio area that included a playground and stage for a band. The portions were large and the waiter was quick to refill our drinks and bring us more...chips and salsa. We ordered the taco salad and country plate and they were both tasty.More

Another of those "new to the area" reviews and well worth it. Had passed Sandra's a few times before but needed a new breakfast meal and this was the chosen place. Small but friendly place for any meal of the day to eat inside or...out. We came for breakfast and were not disappointed in the least. Our server, Kelsie, was attentive and got the coffee order in perfect time with refills available. A great menu with enough for one a day for a couple of months. I enjoyed the Migas plate but it needed a little more tast while she had a custom omlet. Both plates were enough to fill and even take some home. A full bar is also available. We will definitely be back for a lunch or dinner trip. A great place to catch a meal.More

Very good food and margaritas. IF YOU DON'T GO EARLY --- BEFORE 7PM ..... be prepared to wait. There are no reservations or call ahead options. Very reasonably priced as well.

Fantastic food! I had the Tex-Mex Deluxe and hubby had the chalupa plate. Right from the start, the salsa and chips were great, the beer and wine cold. Chalupa and taco shells were so crispy and the borracho beans were perfect. If I had to...say something bad, too much lettuce on the chalupas but who cares when the food is so good. Our server was terrific also.More

We wanted something that wasn’t a chain going North out of San Antonio and found Sandra’s. We sat outside and listened to the musician. Nice atmosphere. They also had a playground for our son to blow off some steam. The only reason for not giving...5 stars is that it took almost an hour for food. To be fair, it was Friday night and we were warned that it might take a while. Fajitas were awesome though!More
