“Good Since Day One”
Reviewed August 7, 2011

We have dined at Papa Nacho's since they opened, nearly ten years.
The food and service has always been top notch.

We enjoy the Papa's special for lunch. A cheese enchilada, crispy beef taco, rice and
boracho beans. Either flour or corn tortillas are served.

The chicken fajitas are really tasty. They are marinated prior to grilling and come with
Pico de gallo, sour cream, and guacamole.

The salsa is fresh, but not too hot. You can order regular tostados, or the thicker nacho chips.
A top Mexican food emporium in San Antonio is nothing to be sneezed at.

“suprise, the best mexican food in San Antonio is in a strip mall!”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Yes, 20 minutes from downtown and no special ambiance and in the corner lot of a grocery store strip mall, but the best Mexican food in town and I have been a native here for 40+ years. Great Tex Mex, great quality, fast and friendly service. I love the cheese enchiladas for lunch but the mahi mahi grilled dinner with artichokes, capers, tomatoes and the like is the best fish in town as well. hard to believe I know but I have never had a bad meal here and I will continue to make visits here a staple of my diet. A fast luch alone or a nice dinner with friends, yes they can do both and they do it well.

“Hot Tamale!”
Reviewed May 13, 2011

The best, most affordable mexican food, hands down. Our family eats there at least once a month. A MUST try!
