This place is incredible. You'll find yourself elbows deep in tortillas and queso and when your food arrives you won't know what to do about cause you'll be stuffed

Margaritas and Torillas

The maragritas are great here and very well prices. The tortillas are also wonderful, I love dipping them in the salsa. I also like the queso and the enchiladas verde.



Great Place!

This is one of our family favorite places!! It has great Tex Mex food, and also some American plates. Our favorite is the Chicken Laredo!! We like to bring our out of town friends here for a good taste of San Antonio. I would recommend Alamo Cafe to all!

Honestly...I was excited to eat here and reserved it for a birthday dinner with family from out of town. The outside (I-10 location) looked intriguing--imagine my surprise when I walked in and saw that it was pretty boring. I was famished and my dinner (enchilada and taco, rice, beans) was fine--nothing great, nothing terrible. I left feeling let down and decided that, while it wasn't a total loss/waste of time, I won't be making a return trip. FYI: I may be gringa but I appreciate authentic Mexican food and this was very Velveeta/Pace tasting. Guess I shouldn't have expected Oaxacan queso and homemade spicy salsa from a place called Alamo Cafe.

Its just not good.

I don't see where people say it soooo great?! It's pretty average, non-authentic tex-mex AND its expensive! The only thing good is the tortillas they serve before the meal. other than that....skip it! Its like tourist food. if you want good fajitas that are at a chain resturant...go to Pappasito's! Its a chain but i swear those beef fajitas are the best anywhere!

We just redesigned! Do you like it?
