Lisa's Mexican Restaurant

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 interior 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.

Jacala Mexican Restaurant
mikeleuzkadi rated
Where the locals eat!

Jacala is probably one of the best-kept secrets in San Antonio's Mexican food scene. Located in an out-of-the-way West Avenue eatery, it's been in business since 1949. I've been eating there at least that long. When I have out-of-town guests that the first place we go. Their food is true Tex-Mex, and they're noted for their "puffy tacos" ( a mouth-watering conncoction of specially spiced beef and hand-tossed tortillas). But the 'coup de grace' is their Cheese Enchilada plate. Smothered in Jacala's signature chili (the tasty variety, not the super-hot type), Jacala's Enchilladas are 'to die for'. If you want to return to tell your friends that you've had the very best Mexican foot money can buy, tell your waiter you want a Number 3 plate (their most popular). For the lesser appetite, try the 'Lady's Special', or the identical 'Macho's Special'. Wash it all down with a Especial Maragarita, and you can truly go back having eaten the 'real thing'! As to the service; it's incomparable! Richard (now in his 70s, has been with Jacala since he was 18 years old. Hi protogee', Miguel, has been there at least 25 years. Guera (pronounced Wera) has been there at least as long as Miguel and runs the second tier of restaurant help with a professional touch. Want to show your sophistication? Try to find the well-hidden face of Jesus in the mural along the rear wall. As a hint: It's located in the trees where the 'Rosita Bridge' crosses the San Antonio River. A further hint: It's on the right hand side of the bridge. -0-

Nicha's Comida Mexicana
garza_m_d89 rated
A DEFINITE place to eat...

When you first walk in you will be welcomed by the hostess who will direct you to your table and tell you who your server will be. In my case, Joel. =) The service is personal and you can expect to be asked how your meal is and how your day is going multiple times. The manager was just as friendly as the team he has. You can definitely keep snacking on the the chips and salsa as they are as superb as the sweet tea (garnished with lime) and enjoy the conversation of your company. The food is delectable. By far the best rice, beans and flour tortillas on the northside. The cheese enchiladas are mouth watering topped with their signature enchilada and chile con carne sauce. The flautas are light and crispy. They are filled and you are guaranteed a mouthful of tender chicken in every bite. This is truly a restaurant where the portions are just right or you might even find yourself saying "I ran out of food!" The atmosphere is perfect for the restaurant. You will find yourself dancing and even swaying to the tejano, amongst other types of latin music. The restrooms as well as the restaurant in general is immaculate both inside and out. This is crucial to me.... It was lunch time. A margarita seals the deal as a great before or after beverage. Did I mention the happy hour?

Mama Maggie's Mexican Restaurant & Bakery

My Mexican favorite restaurant. Seriously!!

Seriously,I don't write reviews very often. I signed up today just to write this review. This is my favorite restaurant. I'm a person who eats out about 90% of the time along with my wife. I frequent this place at least five time a week between breakfast and lunch. They have the best breakfast tacos in town that I know of & are always reasonably priced just like their $5.99 lunch specials which includes Tea or COKE products! And is available till 5 PM! Nowhere I know of has specials available that late! I am a big a boy and I leave full all time! While the Mexican food here is my favorite. The overall best thing about this restaurant is the service from the people who work here. They're always very nice and inviting. When they use to be open till 2:30 p.m. At times I'd come in there 10 minutes before close and they would always still be very genuinely nice and inviting. Which remind also reminds me, they're always fast, SUPER FAST! And these is the reason I love this place! Please support them and go try it out you won't regret it!

Jacala Mexican Restaurant

This place is da bomb!!

If you are looking for a comfortable place to let your hair down and have fun on a budget, look no further. The food is fabulous and plentiful, the drinks are good and affordable and the atmosphere is lively and feels like home. You will almost always find one of the three daughters (now the owners) or the grand-daughter walking around making sure the patrons are happy!! They truly want you to feel at home. Jacala has been serving three and four generations of loyal customers since the inception of their business in 1949. The original owner, Rudy Quinones created his own flair of recipes from his childhood memories of his hispanic family growing up in Oklahoma. It doesn't get anymore Tex/Mex than that! You cannot find another enchilada or puffy taco any where in the world that tastes like Jacala. I know, because I have traveled the world trying to find something that came a little close.........never happened. So....if you are looking for a place to have fun, meet with friends, have a party, reception or just a romantic evening, you will love this place......and you might even see a celebrity or two.

Taco Cabana

Using Taco Cabana's (TC's) own...

New Product Line is a Big Hit! Using Taco Cabana's (TC's) own website for “feedback”, I previously scorched TC for the extreme lack of customer service at this location. Management has since corrected the issues with new personnel who are highly courteous and fast. More importantly, since my feedback TC has done something that is extremely hard to do successfully - they revamped TC's product line to the point that my family considers TC to be the fast-food restaurant of first choice. The new products include (1) high quality "chicken flautas" with all the condiments, (2) beef "street tacos" and the real surprise that we eat for breakfast or dinner, (3) chopped "brisket tacos" on corn tortilla (corn is our particular preference). It is rare that the consecutive unrolling of new products are home runs! Great job TC management!! Now, if you can only get your beef fajitas back to backyard BBQ quality that TC was originally known for, TC would own the fast-food market!

Paloma Riverwalk

Salsa Heaven!

I recently met up with an old friend who was in town for a convention at Paloma for lunch and really had a very pleasant experience. I work downtown but don't really venture very far from the office. The Host (Charlie) was very friendly and unassuming and we were greeted and seated in a timely manner on the outside patio with a great view of the River and people walking along it. Our server was quick to offer up the specials of the day while taking our drink orders. He promptly returned with our drinks and some warm and crunchy chips and some of the best salsa I've ever had! (Addictive) My choice for the Carne Asada was a good one. The portion was generous and it was very tender and cooked to order. Everything was really good, the enchilada, the rice, and the beans. Again, the salsa was addictive; I think we finished the portion twice! I will definitely be making a return trip to Paloma in the very near future!

Taqueria Chapala Jalisco

Great Place

This place is always jamming. They have great breakfast tacos and a HUGE Jalisco style borrito that is ENORMOUS that you can fill to your liking with an array of different meat ,beans w/cheese as well as lettuce and tomato or just bean and cheese with a very mild sauce over top for just under $ 4.00. I usually order it with only beans and cheese and avocado, no salad. Let me tell you this place does NOT skimp. I get pretty much a whole avocado in that borrito. My husband usually gets either the chicken fajita or barbacoa with everything, and that thing is sooo freaking huge!!!! Very good for price and taste. Now don't let me fool you my kids (2 boys under age 12) love this place too. They love the breakfast tacos but they also serve pancakes. Yep, PANCAKES!!! 2 Pancakes, 2 eggs, and bacon for under $ 4.00 as well, and those pancakes are E-NORM-OUS!!! You've just got to try for yourself.

loved the food, waitress not so good

My girlfriends and I came here for lunch& were seated right away . We told the waitress we had separate checks. When the food arrived the waitress had not set out our utensils. So we were hungry w/food in front of us and no way of eating it. Now the food was great. i ordered the mole enchiladas but will agree that i didnt get full. when the waitress brought out bill she was charging some of us for sodas when we had water. After being corrected by 3of us she took off and the manager showed up to ask if everything was okay. He gave us sopapilas. Overall i didn't see anything wrong except the waitress. i would recommend this place to anyone. i love Mexican food and have eaten at many Mexican restaurants. i frankly dont understand why people say its the worst. i have and will continue to come back.

This place was excellent, I ha...

This place was excellent, I have been wary of eating there, because of previous bad experiences with other restaurants that have occupied this location. Add to that, I'm extremely hard to please when it comes to restaurants. I ordered their Enchiladas Verdes lunch special for 3.99. It was MARVELOUS!!! Tasted like my husband's which is what I compare most restaurant food to. The rice and beans were perfect, the chicken was flavorful and the tomatillo sauce was excellent. The tortillas were soft and made right in front of me. I wish I could give this place 10 stars!!! The price made it an extra treat. 3.99 for 3 enchiladas, rice, beans, salad, sour cream and two tortillas. You can't beat it! They are going to give the restaurants in this neighborhood a run for their money!!!!
