After seeing Beto's on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, we knew we just had to try it on our next visit to San Antonio. The fish tacos were great as were the empanadas. We had the Chicken Poblano Empanada as that was the one shown on the show. We tried all of the flavors of margaritas and loved all of them! Mango was the favorite, although the Strawberry one was pretty tasty, too! We had the chips and queso and enjoyed them as well. They will ask you if you have ever dined with them before, and, if you haven't (please be honest!) they offer you a 'first time comp' (as it shows up on your receipt) for a free dessert. I should have started with dessert it was so yummy! I enjoyed the fact that you can order a' la carte with out having the beans and rice. The help was very friendly, making sure you enjoyed yourself. I definitely will go back.

Bentos is famous for their fish tacos. So last week we went to have tacos, and lo and behold, there was a really neat guy singing and playing his guitar. The service is great as is the food.

We first discovered this restaurant in 2012 when visiting the area and proceeded to eat here 7 or 8 times on that trip. We are now back 2 years later and the food was as good as ever! The chips and salsa are great and the queso dip was enjoyed by the kids and the adults. The horchata is very good. Our favorites are the grilled fish tacos, the al pastor tacos, chicken poblano empanadas, mole empanada, and the taco a la Karla. The chocolate empanada with ice cream for dessert is one of our favorite things! The banana caramel Pecan empanada is also great. We will definitely go back!

I ran by this place and later learned that it had been featured on DDD. I tried the fish tacos, an empanada, and a quesadilla. The fish tacos were the stated signature dish and they did not disappoint. I also tried the horchata, very nice. I came back, if that says anything and will consider them if in the area.

Read about this restaurant on-line.......nothing fancy to look at but the Fish Taco's with Polblano and Chimichurri Sauce we great. As was the Banana w/Leche Quemada & Pecan Empanada. The sauces served with the fish tacos inspired us to try and duplicate the recipes upon our return home.
