In a city rich with tradition, our family has been serving up traditional Mexican cuisine since 1979. Today there are three San Antonio locations offering family recipes that have been handed down for generations.
The food is generally good here. Solid Tex-Mex and strong margaritas. Plenty of parking and usually not a long wait. It is a big restaurant. Service is fast and efficient. In nice days, the patio is the place to be.
Salsa is phenomenal. Best I’ve ever had in SA, which is a lot! Good prices and great drinks. Awesome atmosphere, on the modern side.
It was good...the equivalent of Mi Cocina back in Dallas. The waiter seemed to lose interest, after I decided to go with the drink special VS the full-price selection. I don't drink like that, therefore the smaller size worked for me. A nice variety/selection of items to choose from & the food itself was actually very tasty. Overall, I would go back again when I'm in town.
Great experience. Claudio makes you feel so welcome and absolutely great service and food. Definitely will come back 😃
I really like this new El Mirasol, great atmosphere inside the restaurant. The bar area has large glass doors that can be fully opened on a nice day, kind of like an atrium. I used to get the crab salad. This time I ordered it and it's different. Now they mix crab meat with mayo and stuff. It used to be just plain crab meat on an avocado with some nice dressing. Don't like the new stuff 🙁
The salsa is yummy to the Nth degree and it compliments each of their tasty dishes so well. My fave is the Cheddar Cheese Enchilladas plate, but there are plenty of other great choices. Their Spanish Rice is extra fluffy and flour tortillas are freshly made. The best part is my glass of Big Red never runs out thanks to the attentive staff. Stop by and see for yourself...your belly will be so glad you did!
I believe the chef that started this restaurant also has three other in San Antonio, and they're all great. I go here for lunch about once a week and it's always great food and great service. Only possible downside is that the restaurant can seem a little bit difficult to get to since it's in the middle of a shopping center. Other than that, nothing but great things to say about this place.
Really nice atmosphere, ambiance, and GREAT, friendly, courteous, and attentive wait staff here. There is a full bar area with seating near by and then seating on the other side of the restaurant as well. There are even a handful of tables outside on the patio area. Romantic Latin music plays softly in the background but not so loud as to overpower the conversation – it’s literally just in the background. I must confess I only had a salad and although it was good, I can’t honestly review this place based on the food – I refuse to review a Mexican restaurant based on a salad – that just seems sac religious to me! I did try the chips and salsa though. The salsa is the roasted style, not the red, uncooked fresh style. It was good but just not a whole lot of kick to it. I didn’t try it but, the other party at my table had the fish ceviche and said it was REALLY good. The best part of this place really is the ambiance and the service – and it is priced just right for that.
I had the Chispa and the fajita tacos. Food and drink was delicious. Our server was very attentive even though they were busy. I would definitely recommend visiting this restaurant.
Nothing bad about the restaurant to say. The food was great. The service was great. It's the parking. The parking was jacked up. You have to park so far away then walk in the freezing cold quite some distance.
