Classy and Professional Staff

I held my boyfriends 30th birthday dinner there and we can honestly say it turned out perfect! Miguel was very helpful and made sure what I asked for came through. Every detail and suggestions I made really came to life. I will definitely be back and recommend to everyone.

My teenage kids love the food.

It has become a favorite for my kids and me. There are Mexican restaurants on just about every corner. And when I mention one of them, my kids groan. But they love Lisa's. They love the different types of enchiladas! And I get to select carnitas, or sopes or one of the many dishes that reminds me of mother's cooking. Try it once, you will love it. It's a great adult place too. A beautiful bar area with traditional drinks as well as some tasty tropical options.

Lisa's Dishes Delish Mex-Tex in Style

Let me tell you about a place that's won my endless love: Lisa's Mexican Restaurant on Bandera Road.

The space—soothing, modern and inviting. Warm, saturated jewel tones and walls bursting with bold original artwork by Brother Cletus set the stage for memorable food.

Lisa's pays homage to both Mexican and Tex-Mex. Comida estilo casero is elevated to exemplary status thanks to beautifully executed recipes, fresh ingredients and a respectful nod to tradition.

The menu features i
...view morenterior Mexican classics like Rajas con Crema. Roasted poblano pepper strips and sauteed onions swim in a silky, rich cream sauce. Lisa's sopes are the best I've had in Texas- fresh masa patties with a discreet slather of bacony refrieds.

One topped with earthy, piquant cubes of lean pork in perfect salsa roja, the other crowned with richly spiced papas with fresh chorizo. Both garnished with crisp lettuce, finished with queso fresco and drizzled with Mexican crema. I felt "en casa".

I also fell in love with Lisa's two excellent salsas- a vibrant, playful tomato serrano, or a rich, roasted jalapeño, onion and tomato number with slow, lingering burn.

Spinach enchiladas are benchmark. These espinacas are clean, vibrant and luxuriously draped in cream, sided with veggies and excellent, fluffy white rice.

Classic Tex-Mex enchiladas sing, and San Antonians voted the cheese enchiladas "best in town".

Lisa's borracho beans get bacon, fresh pico de gallo, beer and respect. Yes indeed, because the beans remain tender and whole at once, the broth eminently slurpable. These frijoles were also named "best in San Antonio".

Pescado a la Veracruzana is lovely. The sauce, a well-balanced, complimentary blend of tomatoes, olives, peppers and spices doesn't overwhelm the mild fish fillets.

Tacos al pastor get an achiote marinade for a "toque yucateco," rich, flavorful and alive with fresh cilantro, cebolla and pineapple. I was almost at the corner taquería in the DF, standing at an angle and biting my way to taco callejero heaven.

Oh, and the corn tortillas. The flour are righteous, but the corn...oh my Aztec gods.

Hand made, light, tender- hechas a mano. Great corn tortillas are hard to find in San Antonio, flour tortilla kingdom. Attention to craft and authenticity are the norm here.

Go to Lisa's. Eat your way thru the menu. Enjoy the attentive, warm service. Be a discerning Mex-Tex lover.

The server told me many of the regulars are fixtures- they eat here five and six times a week.

I smiled, not one bit surprised. I understood. I'm one of them now.

take a snack a long for the wait

It seems that they have a great location and great decore. That's where the great ends. after waiting two hours for a table for 8 and being told we would be seated next 11 times while they seated smaller parties. we finally put our foot down and told them they need to seat us by putting two tables together. the tea watered down, water tasted like the water hose and four of the 8 plates were luke warm not even close to hot. then waited 15 minutes after asking for our check to leave,...view more the waitress seem to disappear. Go to pico de gallo instead!view less
