Walked down from the hotel since we heard it was good food, couldn't be more disappointed. Went here with a group of people, should've know. We were in trouble when we walked right in and got seated immediately with 8. Waited over 1.5 hours for our food. I ordered chicken fajitas and I got steak fajitas. I told them I... More

I've been here many times because it's convenient to the hotel I stay. Unfortunately it is more often than not a barely passable experience. Today I ordered room service. It took over 1 hour to deliver up the hill. Burger cold... maybe last time I order from there. Then a friend of mine orders and said it was really good.

1st time at El Papalote. Service was ok (a little unorganized / confused - we ordered in Spanish). Food was ok and small portions.

Dined here with friends. One waiter speaks good English. Fake barn place, family oriented, nothing fancy. Plenty of big screens with sports events (USA, Mexican). Simple dishes, Flavorful with choice in red or green dressings. Good service. Regular beers.

Food was good. Service was very good. Despite several prominent AMEX signs their card machine didn't work and we had no other CC on us. From the sounds of it it never works. Fortunately we were staying up the hill at the new Staybridge and one of the staff came up with us and a card reader to process a... More

I went to El Papalote in April, 2014. The service was very good - friendly and prompt wait staff. The food was also very good and if you are looking for decent Mexican food this is not a bad choice. The waitress did not speak English but as I was with two people who spoke Spanish it was not a... More

This is a nice restaurant. I like how it is decorated. Food quality was so-so for the steep price. You can get the same meal prepared better, for less money, elsewhere.

They have menus in both Spanish and English on their site. If you're looking for the English version go to their site and choose Mexico and then Menu and then at the bottom there is a link to the English Mexico menu. Choosing the USA location gives you the US menu and thats the one in San Antonio. They have... More
