I have lived in San Antonio all my life(41yrs) and close by to Oscar's. The food is Good but the service is terrible. Don't ever call in your order for pick up. I can tell you from experience that they will get it wrong 8 times out of 10. I usually just get the order fixed and don't make any complaints but this time the manager had a very bad attitude and had some very bad comments to make before i walked off. She even lied about my wife calling in to cancel the order. When I got my wife on the phone to clear the problem up I went inside to speak with her and lo and behold the owner and his wife were there. I kept very calm and gave the manager the phone to speak with my wife. She had attitude and bad manners. They hung up she handed me my phone and said your order will be out with a sassy attitude right in front of the owner and his wife. WOW!!! I thought.... is this her mom and dad. Don't know and don't care. She has no right to act the way she did. As I was walking out she said all the customers cause a lot of drama around here. I walked back in and said "this would not have happened at Rocky's". I didn't know what else to say, I just know I was upset at this point. On top of that when I went outside to wait for them to fix my order she kept complaining about me to the kitchen staff. I got even more upset and grabbed my food from the first order they got wrong and took it in and requested my money back. The owner then finally stepted in and wanted to know what was going on. I calmly explained to him the situation and he said it was unacceptable and said my order was ready. By that point or should I say at that point... WHY? The damage is done. They need new Management. Bottom Line......

This is my favorite place for enchiladas!!! I usually love trying different things....I do! But these are soooo good I can't tear myself away from them! They also have some great chicharones if you like that(REALLY soft). Not my thing...but my mom does. Great prices.
This place is not on the Riverwalk with the overrated high priced restaurants. This is a simple, high quality place that has fresh food with an authentic taste. The staff is friendly and this is where the locals eat. It is a 5 minute walk from most Riverwalk hotels on St Mary's and simply is …
I ordered the chile relleno dinner and it was delicious. I wanted the mole sauce instead of the enchilada sauce on the enchilada. They changed without a question. The pan dulce was delicious too.
Visiting San Antonio over the weekend from LA. Read the reviews and made an effort to find this place, and we were not disappointed. The tamales, salsa, and tortillas are amazing. If you love Mexican food, this place is a must when visiting San Antonio.
I grew up in San Antonio and throughout my lifetime have lived all over the world; but when I come home to Texas I have to have my Jacala. \r \r Jacala has been in business since 1949 and their food and service has ALWAYS been consistently great!! You will not find a better plate of Tex-Mex an…
Not the best...but I have had worse. They claim to have the "Best Tacos in America", I beg to differ...or maybe I ordered the wrong ones. I had lunch there today. The service was excellent but the food is not impressive. I ordered the Soft Chicken Taco lunch plate. The plate looked impressive with 3 chicken filled corn tortillas smothered in a ranchero type sauce. The corn tortillas used were pretty tasty as was the chicken. But the ranchero sauce, the beans and the rice were all VERY bland. I had to add a ton of salt and pepper to get some sort of flavor. I also added salsa that was served with the chips. The salsa was tasty but not spicy at all. Additionally, I believe the prices are a little to high. I paid $3.49 for a side of guacamole...it was a small spoonful of smashed avacodo served over very mild pico de gallo. I added salt and pepper to this as well. The only thing I REALLY enjoyed was the flour tortilla served with my plate. They were delicious. Also, I tried a bite of the sopapilla and it was good too. I wouldn't mind going back to try the nachos I saw come out of the window or even a breakfast taco (in hopes that maybe they would be the meaning behind their "Best Taco in America" claim).
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!Recommend:Country & egg tacoPotato & egg tacoMexican PlateSteak asada quesdiaFidel Loco
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!
The food is good but the staff is so sour. I hate going in there and after today don't think I ever will again. I was the third customer. The Place was empty. I put in my order to go. I asked for a receipt. Forgot to take it. A minute later guy says who forgot their receipt? He went to patron 2 she said no I lifted my hand to claim it. Minutes later it's just me and my order is ready. He says to me, Did you pay? And I said yes and took out my receipt. He barely look at it and said in a defensive way, Just checking Just checking like he thinks I'm lying. I felt like throwing the food in the road I was so mad. How does he not remember in a room of three people that I handed him 20 dollars! I could understand in a room full of like 10 or more people but give me a break. The food is good but not THAT good. This was the last straw. I'll take my money where it's wanted. What really irks me is that I've always been nice, I didn't deserve his suspicion or attitude.
I went to the Taco Garage for my first time and it will be my last time. The service was a little slow but it was busy so I didn't mind. I ordered the crispy beef taco plate. The tacos were a little bland and the salsa they serve with their chips didn't have any kick to it, so I asked the server if I could have some pico de gallo fot the tacos. She said sure & came back several minutes later with what they called pico. It didn't bear any resemblance to correct pico de gallo, but I used it on my tacos and it at least gave a little flavor.When they brought my bill I noticed a charge of .49 cents for pico de gallo. What Mexican restaurant charges extra for a tiny amount of really bad pico? I asked about the charge & they said it was "because they had to ask their kitchen to make it". I didn't argue or complain, but I can promise I'll never go back and I WILL let everyone I know about my crappy experience.
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!!!!
This place is AMAZING!!! No, it doesn't look like prepackaged food. In fact, we got home made tortillas upon request. And the variety is enormous...everything from enchilada and tacos to barbarcoa to posole to lengua to mole to chicharron con chile to chile relleno. They even have a whole section of Pan Dulce!!! And they don't just serve Mexican. They have a Chinese food section and an American food section too. So the variety of this establishment should not ever be questioned. The food tasted great...except for the menudo (not enough flavor and the hominy is served on the side). The staff is very pleasant. There was plenty of room. It was well worth the $10 I spent today. In fact, as I was eating, I called my family recommending this place to them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Average food.I came here for a retirement lunch with a group of about 35 people. We had the “Depot” room reserved. Tea was already on the table and the ice was almost completly melted by the time we arrived.Two bowls of salsa and chips were provided per each 9 person table. We had to request more.The chips and salsa were very good though.I had the beef fajitas. They were average. The flour tortillas were good.The staff was friendly but a little slow as there was only two people helping with the large group.We used the free shuttle service to pick up 15 of us from our office in downtown San Antonio and take us back. This was an EXCELLENT touch. Because of this I will give four stars instead of three.
Average.I came here for lunch on a weekday with a group of seven. We heard there’s not a lot of seating room and it gets crowded during lunch. They were right. People were lined up outside waiting for a table. We arrived early and were able to get seated right away.The staff was very friendly and the service was good.I had the beef puffy taco lunch plate. The food and salsa were average. My friends really liked the flour tortillas. I had the corn tortillas. They were tough and tasted freezer burned.The prices were a little high considering that you can get equal or better food at other places around town and a lower price.I would go back but I’m not in a hurry.
