Had lunch today, nachos and diet coke. Very authentic, very packed and a busy Mexican restaurant even has a pan dulce area. It's very popular and just a hop, skip and jump away from The Market Square.

We participate in the Fiesta Flambeau Parade every year and our tradition is to stop here either before OR after. Food is great and at a very reasonable price. Interior is fun and festive.

Our last meal on our latest trip to San Antonio was meeting friends at Pico De Gallo. Incredible authentic Mexican restaurant, where the food, ambiance, and international bar make every visit a rewarding experience!.

We were a large group and were quickly accommodated. The food was good the picadillo was really good. We ordered the parrillada which was more than enough for two. Service is good. Drinks were not that strong. I recommend this restaurant if u want to satisfy your tex-mex craving.

Our waitress never came to check to see about our drink order when we sat down. We finally had to flag someone down and asked them to get our waiter. Food wasn't that great and little over priced. If you're looking for a quiet dinner, don't go on Friday nights. Even though we asked the Mariachi band not to play... More

More appealing to tourists rather than locals. Even though they are owned by the same people who own Mi Tierra, I personally prefer Mi Tierra. Sunday lunch was probably not a good time to be there. It was a madhouse. We waited 20 minutes for a table and ended up on the second floor, which for both of us with... More

At Pico de Gallo, our high standards were set over 75 years ago when Pete Cortez, a native of Guadalajara, Jalisco opened his first restaurant, Mi Tierra. In time, popularity of the restaurant grew and a new, more spacious location had to be purchased. Today, our family owns four restaurants - La Margarita, Pico de Gallo, Viva Villa Taqueria and Mi Tierra, and Pete and Cruz's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren still uphold the same standards that were set years ago. We are still revered as one of the best Mexican food restaurants to visit, and provide a unique cultural ambience that is fun for locals and tourists alike. Conveniently located in the heart of the Alamo city, we invite you to bring your family and friends to experience everything that is Pico de Gallo.
