After moving to San Antonio and surprisingly unable to find a good authentic Mexican restaurant, we stumbled into Guajillos due to a wrong turn on 410. It was the BEST driving decision I've made since being here, because this place GETS IT!!!! I believe the family is from Mexico City which explains the originality of the menu that is probably a rare encounter. The food is AWESOME, the service is average and the drinks were not too shabby (Jamaica-Me-Crazy in particular). I now have the perfect response when asked by others, "Where is the BEST Mexican food in SA ?" . As opposed to the norm and often franchised concepts around here, this place is definitely SA's best kept secret that SHOULD be told!!!

I have no idea why this place gets good reviews. The fish is fishy and food bland. Couldn't even finish. There are many other Mexican places to drop your money. Or, you could just light a $20 bill on fire and watch it burn, which would be more pleasant than going to Guajillo's.

If you want the real thing, then you have just discovered it. Guajillo's is food made exactly the way the gorgeous country of Mexico would have liked it. You will never go back to Tex-Mex ever again. This will become your Home restaurant forever. It is the best way to drive your taste buds ""Loco"". If you find it hard to believe, try it, and you will be converted. Try everything on the menu. After that, it will be hard to decide just which meal to pick your next visit. I am telling you the truth. Here is a hint---the owners are actually from Mexico. And, them, and ""Only"" them have the real flavor of Mexico right there in San Antonio.

I can't think of any place in town that ALWAYS serves up delicious, satisfying food. Besides the food, the staff is amazing and don't get me started on the drinks. Guajillos is hands down the BEST place to eat in town.
I go there as often as possible and anytime I want to be certain to enjoy a delicious meal.
