“Small Place, Big Flavor”
Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

The venue itself is relatively small and easily passed on the drive by, but this small restaurant is worth the stop. The chicken and fajitas are great and the burgers aren't bad either

“OMG ! is this for real”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Small menu but they do everything great. Grilled chicken is quick and fresh. Served with perfect rice, grilled onion, grilled jalapeno and tortillas. Nortena burger is to die for. Almost need a fork to eat it. Come hungry and come early. Seating is limited and they get really crowded around noon. BYOB for an evening hangout.

“The best chicken in SA!!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We absolutely LOVE the chicken here - we live relatively nearby, and had driven past a few times noticing the smoke coming from the grills in front. We finally decided to stop in, and have been regulars ever since. The chicken is always incredibly flavorful and juicy (even the white meat is never dry!), and the sides are great too. This is a family fun place, and the attention to quality really shows. Service is courteous, quick and friendly. We get food to go on many occasions, but have also eaten in the restaurant which is casual, comfortable and pleasant. One thing to note if you eat in, is that they don't serve alcohol - I've never asked if you can bring your own, but that might be a possibility. The location is in SE San Antonio, just a few minutes from downtown, and well worth the drive! Skip the grocery store rotisserie bird, and make the trip to Los Nortenos - you will be really happy you did!
