We drove thirty-five miles in a rain just to eat at Los Barrios. Always good, fresh Mexican food! Ready to return!

I visited Los Barrios as part of a large group (about 15 of us) on a Saturday. They handled the group like professionals. The food here was pretty good. It's fairly standard Tex Mex. I've had much better and I've had much worse. We started with Queso Flamadeo. It came out flaming which excited the kids. It was very good.... More

It's wonderful the service was more than impressive, David, and we're glad the whole group had the chance to try out a few different dishes. However, we're sorry to hear the meals themselves were only average -- we don't want to offer anything short of perfect, so we'll keep your feedback in mind. We hope we'll get the chance to... More

We usually try to meet friend here every time we are in San Antonio and love the quality of food we receive here. Definitely worth the drive away from downtown for dinner!

Best Mexican Restaurant in San Antonio. Ask to be served by Mac or Henry. If you return, Mac will remember your drink and food order. Ask for Henry's salsa.

I try to make it out here any time I'm in San Antonio. My go-to order is always the Cortadillo - a spicy beef tenderloin stew similar to Carne Guisada, but BETTER. everything is good on their menu though. I've had the fajitas, fish tacos, and my vegetarian daughter usually gets the enfrijoladas - enchiladas filed with frijoles and cheese.... More

Tasty food. Good service. Told our server we were trying to make a flight. He was awesome getting us drinks, food, and our check. We were in and out in about 20 mins! We couldn't leave town without trying some local Tex Mex! Parking lot might seem full but there's lots of seating inside, and it looks clean and well... More
