This local establishment has been around for a while. The open dining area and tables lend to the image. The margaritas were large and not bad. We both had the chimichangas. The one with beef and red sauce was a bit bland while the one with chicken and green sauce was more tasty. Will not be on our list to... More

Went twice in one week. The food was good and can't beat the happy hour and karaoke on Wednesdays. The service was also excellent even during the busy times. Can't wait ti go back!

Ate here 2 years ago and we were underwhelmed. So last Monday, we were visiting my brother and his wife here in San Antonio, and we were hungry. When they suggested Tomatillos again, we almost declined. We would have been wrong. The Carne Guisada was delicious. So were the Chicken Sour Cream Enchiladas. The menu is huge, so even the... More

Love the daily specials, police/fire fighter discount (20%), and fresh tortillas. There is ample seating which can definitely be an issue when eating lunch on Broadway on a weekday. There are several offset rooms to conduct business / office meetings if desired, just coordinate with manager to have dedicated wait staff.

Tomatillo's has been there as long as I can remember and is a "must" when I come back to visit. It did not disappoint either. Food was great, reasonable, and plentiful. Service was good as was the happy hour. It's not on the river so it is away from most the tourists and definitely more of a locals restaurant. Glad... More

We had dinner here upon a recommendation and were not disappointed. Out server, Eric, went out of his way to do many extra things. Had the chicken enchiladas mole and it was very good. This is a family restaurant run by a family who cares, not some rubber stamp Tex-Mex tourist trap. I may not be a native Antonioian but... More

Tomatillo's is a great place farvaway from the touristy soots of San Antonio. Pretty standard menu, but done very well. Great fajitas, queso, and cold beer. Good spot for some good food in a laid back atmosphere.
