Very small place but the food is authentic Mexican! My recommendation is the Red Chilaquiles. They are truly delicious.

Love love love me some mexican breakfast! Make sure you try everything on the menu for breakfast because every dish is freshly prepared with enticing flavors. And as much as I enjoyed eating there, the staff seem to enjoy working there just as much.

This unassuming restaurant offers amazing authentic Mexican! Came with my 2 kids and baby. Our server was very friendly and good with the kids (they do have high chairs). Ordered a short stack of pancakes and a kid's breakfast plate for the little ones, and green chilaquiles with eggs over easy with tortillas and coffee for myself. Food was out... More

You couldn't ask for better food or better service. The owners are truly happy to see you and want you to be happy, too. My favorite is the chilaquiles! Went for lunch one day and tried the chicken soup: hearty and full of lovely flavors. I'll be back.

The two servers, Alfredo and Ramon, are members of the family who own the restaurant, and they're the friendliest guys! If the food wasn't already a good reason to go, the price will blow you away! We've fed three... More

Not knowing the area, I googled the nearest Mexican restaurant near my home and this one popped up - just 2 lights from my house. A tiny restaurant in a small strip center - not very noticeable. I ordered... More

My wife and I were invited to have breakfast on our first day in San Antonio. El Buen Gusto is located in downtown San Antonio. It is a a typical Tex-Mex establishment, leaning more on the Mexican side of the cuisine. The owners are dedicated cooks and amazing people. It is indeed family owned, operated and full of family pride.... More
