You have to try this place. Great ambience, the tacos de alambre are the best in two and their flan de elote is a killer. The staff were so attentive. This place can get very busy on weekends so call for reservations. It's a very big place so you will get seated anyway

This is the second time we go to this restaurant. The first time I was very disappointed because I ordered the Chile en Nogada (a Poblano pepper stuffed with meat covered in a nut sauce and decorated with pomegranate seeds). This one was decorated with dried cranberries and the nut sauce was too sweet. I didn't want it as dessert!... More

Been there several times. first visits were always great. Food quality was always very good. Place is not cheap more on the $$$ side but worth it, that was until today. We went back to celebrate and found out my favorite dish was taken off the menu! Two other friends shared my opinion that food quality has somehow decreased. Not... More

La Tequilera is the best restaurant in San Antonio. The food is AMAZING and the service is unbeatable. If you are looking for real Mexican food, not TexMex, then this is the place to be. All of the taco selections are spot on, but the best is Tacos Petroleros. They are PERFECTION! I never thought a "taco" could taste this... More

A friend took us to one his favorites in San Antonio and it's easy to see why: good food, great service, interesting decor. We look forward to another visit next time we're in this vibrant and fun city.

Food is pricey, not the best like other Mexican restaurants in San Antonio, and the decoration is outdated. Try other places, and what you get does not match the prices...

think it's a newer eatery and was a little cautious of few reviews. Food was good, service was a little slow, server was awesome. Margarita's, which they are suppose to be known for, were just ok. Really glad they were 1/2 price. Shrimp cocktail out standing, Fresh tortilla chips and salsa variety great. Would go back, would not stand in... More
