  • review rating 5  Wow! The food here is so flavorful and the Chispas are the best margaritas in San Antonio! I’m from Mexico and I can say this place is authentic. Service was superb.

  • review rating 4  Good, quality Food with great service. There are a lot of places to eat here in San Antonio and although the food was good, I probably won't go back due to so many other amazing Mexican and Mexican inspired restaurants in the area. I had the lobster quesadillas and the lobster enchiladas alongside chips, salsa and guacamole. Good, but not extravagant but I wish that it was!

  • review rating 5  Tucked away in the corner of Alon, is a slice of Mexican food heaven! It is popular, so you may have to wait for dining. On a recent Sunday we enjoyed mimosas and waited 1/2 hour comfortably in bar seating. The restaurant is modern and well appointed with interesting serape style ceiling hanging and table or booth style dining. On a recent visit, we enjoyed the snapper ceviche as appetizer and main entrees of lobster enchiladas and cabrito street tacos. All were delicious and well presented. Wait staff very polite and attentive to needs. The restaurant accommodates parties of large groups as well. One concern: we sat near the back in an arched alcove with tiled walls which we thought would be secluded/ private and were able to hear reverberations of the normal table conversation behind us clearly as if they were sitting with us. Very distracting, as we were also concerned they could hear us! We will return, but not to those tables!

  • review rating 5  Absolutely LOVE the manager RICARDO. I have never seen a manager work so hard and help his staff 100! In every way. He is a bartender, he host, he busses, he waits, he is just freaking amazing. He is definitely in the right position. He really deserves a major raise! The staff here starting with Ricardo and continue on with Domingo, Franco, Daniel, Raul, the host and everyone here is just amazing. The Food is top notch, this is our go to restaurant and we send all our family and friends here to eat. Love it!!!!!

  • review rating 5  This really is my home away from home. The food is always fresh and delicious. The chispas here are perfectly made. The restaurant is clean and the ambience is energetic and lively. The service is top notch. Ask for Priscilla or Franco, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend this restaurant for family outings or date night.
