I first went to the restaurant for lunch some time ago last summer with a co-worker that really loved the enchiladas here. Back then I didn't go for the enchiladas, which looked and smelled good, but instead I tried their chicken soup and the traditional puffy taco. One thing about puffy tacos is that they are very easy to mess up when making but if done right they can be a good eat. And they were. The dough they use was just right in consistency and suprisingly it did not come out soggy like other places. The chicken was juicy and very flavorful. The soup was also really good and I was told by the waiter that they make it daily and it typically runs out by lunch time. I went back to Janitzios this Sunday and luckily found a seat. The first impressive thing was the complimentary fruit bar that my kids loved. I am so happy that they serve the fruit because I dont have to worry about my kids only eating bean and cheese tacos for lunch. Now I can count on them enjoying the fruit. I did try then enchiladas and I must say they are about the best I have ever tried. The enchilada sauce has a rich meaty flavor with a hint of different spices that really come together good. We all had the enchilada plate (and I had my puffy taco) and we fell in love with the food. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a warm family environment and good food. The price is not to high which really helps out. Thank you all.
I live for El Tipico. My husband and I are from San Antonio but live about 400 miles away now. Every time we come to visit, we make a point to eat at El Tipico. I LOVE the homemade tortillas and the salsa is so very yummy. Keep it up!
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 enchila…
Emmy's is my favorite hole in the wall mexican food places in all of san antonio. I found out about it when I first moved to SA, when I lived on campus at UTSA. The prices are outstanding. Their migas are OUT of this WORLD! Just like abuelita makes 'em! I'm just so impressed with the place, I br…
The bathroom issue has been fixed after their last expansion, they now have two and both handicap accessible. The food is authentic and the best for your buck. Service is always fast and friendly and you never have to worry about parking, even if you drive an 18 wheeler...so stop in and enjoy!
The best guacamole that we have every eaten. It is made fresh by your table. Also, the Blue Crab Tacos are the best. The Tuna Margarita made with Prickly Pear Cactus juice was fantastic as well. Prices are reasonable for the River Walk ranging from $8 to $28. However, the quality of the food is worth every penny. By the way, a previous reviewer commented on the salsa's appearance. It includes roasted tomatoes, so the color is somewhat brown. However, it is delicous! We dined here twice on a recent visit to San Antonio and found that the service excelled during the lunch hour due to the lack of crowds. The second time, we had a reservation for Saturday evening and wow what a difference in the number of people and unfortunately the service due to the demand on the wait staff. We prefer the peaceful lunch over-looking the River Walk to the busy evening scene. Overall, a restaurant that shouldn't be overlooked while in downtown San Antonio.
Spicy Ginger Asian Cafe, in my opinion, is a decent place to eat. It is very affordable. The food portion is a good amount for the price that you paid for. The drive-thru is a plus. I haven't seen any thai place that has drive-thrus. There are a variety of food choices from the menu. Structurally, the restaurant itself lacks some ambiance effect. The tables and chairs are not very comfortable. The walls are bare. You can see-through the ceiling. It really feels like eating inside a warehouse - literally. I asked for a fish sauce and I can definitely tell that it has been watered down (my husband told me that it is probably due to the strong smell of this sause and that the place is simply catering to American customers - makes sense I guess). But if you want something quick and different - and this place is definitely worth a try.
have you gone to el sol the food is very good and the waitresses are very careing especially sandy and nancy they are sisters and they take real good care of you and your guest,felipe is a man with great respect ,morals,helps on tables and communicates with his customers too,asuring all was good and if not he will correct it fast with no problem,i enjoy my meals there everyday and admire felipes hard work in keeping it going with good food and service , and like any other resturants if something is not right adress it to mr.felipe and he will take care of it,this resturant is my best place to eat anytime and who ever does,nt like it can go else where because el sol is booming in business., without your money, always pack so visit and rank or judge for yourself thank you felipe and el sol staff !!!!! angel
My Fiance and I came to the newly opened restaurant around opening time. We were greeted right away and drink order taken we began to explore all the items everything looked fresh and well organized as well as clean. I cant stress that clean part. If someone even had a crumb put out someone would be right out to clean it up. The sushi was ok and all the food out on warmers was good. However the star of the show that people rarely took part of is the Mongolian Grill area making your own lo mein or stir fry and making it how you want. It was delicious and Id return for all but especially that part. They were quick at refills as well as getting the check. The price was a steal for lunch. 18 dollars for the two of us not including tip but well worth that money. Definitely try this place out it was delicious and great service.
If you are looking for authentic Puerto Rican food, this is not the restaurant for you!! I am Puerto Rican, raised in Chicago. Their Jibarito had roast pork on it, they would not make it with steak. Their accapurias were horrible and they charged $2.50 for one. In NY or Chicago one is $.75. Their prices are way too high! These are simple dishes they are serving. The rice had little flavor I could tell they didn't use sofrito an they used little sazon. The ropa vieja was average. The cooks are Mexican. Not to say Mexicans can't cook good PR'n food but generally we season food diferently. I wouldn't get asada tacos from a restaurant that is advertised as a Puerto Rican Restaurant, hopefully you get the point! Don't go there with high expectations, especially if you are familiar with PR'n cuisine.
I needed something different so I decided to stop at this place. The food did not take long to make and they make it when you order it. I took it to go so I cant really comment on the table service but the lady who took my order was very nice and friendly. They do not have a website so I actually had to walk in to place my order since I didnt have a menu. Let me just say they are NOT cheap witht he portions. The meal had plenty of meat and lots of vegetables too. Im not into fried rice but my son is and he ate pretty much all of it. The eggrolls were good too. They have lunch specials from 11 am to 3 pm for $5.25 and $5.75 which is not bad at all. They dont have a daily special so you can pick from a long list of dishes for lunch. I was happy with the food and would definitely go back.
I am from Houston and have been in San Antonio for over a year and I had not found a Mexican restaurant that had really lived up to my expectations! I had a friend take me to Panchitos this Sunday and I didnt know what to expect, the place is not very big and when we walked in you have to wait in line to order. I ordered a menudo, a guisada taco and a barbacoa taco and my taste buds were in for a real treat! If you are looking for an up-scale place this is not for you, but the place is well kept, clean and the people that work there were really friendly, even the manager was walking around and gave us a refill on our coffee, which saved us a trip to the coffee station. I do believe that I have found my new favorite hole in the wall.
I'm a regular at huhot, I go about once a week. I've been there at all times of the day 11am, 3pm, 5pm, 7pm and no matter what time I go I receive the same five star service every time! When I have guest from out of town come up to visit that's the first place I take them too! Not only is it fun mixing up your own ingridients and designing your own plates with a variety of meats, veggies and sauces but the cooks put on a nice little show! Everytime I talk to my out of town guest, the first thing on their mind is coming up to SA to go eat at HuHot! Don't get me wrong, it's super busy and packed at lunch time and you may have to use two bowls but the overall experience is Five Stars in my book!!!
I'm Singaporean and usual not a fan of fusion Asian restaurants. A few friends of mine started going to this place after our weekly ride. it's got a good combination of Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, typical and not so typical Asian dishes. everything is made very fresh and the prices are reasonable. it's now one of my favorite restaurants. i go there once a week. i recommend the duck green curry and the asparagus soup. The staff is very friendly. I recommend this place to everyone. By the way, it's not a "Thai" restaurant. The owners are Chinese from Hong Kong. There are dishes there inspired by many Asian cultures
