“Not TEX-MEX but still a great place to eat”
Review of San Antonio Bar

San Antonio Bar
Ranked #369 of 1,008 Restaurants in Arlington
Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2013

It had been 2 years since I last ate at this restaurant. The menu has changed. Although there are many Mexican menu items and still great food, it definitely no longer is Tex-Mex as expected by visiting Texans. Several items now have a Peruvian style of preparation. The list of combo meals is very limited to maybe just 4 and all of them have chili reno included. Although the chili reno part of the large meal was the best I can recall having, not being able to order the normal fare was disappointing since I walked several blocks to get there with a friend to whom I had recommended the restaurant. The tamale was mostly thick flour-dough. Salsa was watery and you had to ask a couple of times to get more than the tiny cup offered to start with. The waiter had difficulty speaking, being understood, and missed our desired options in the order - definitely not a native English speaker. Beer was expensive and the prices for the meals had gone up. Expect to spend a minimum of $25 for a dinner plate and one drink. No music. No connection to San Antonio Texas. Maybe they have a San Antonio in Peru. I would not longer recommend it.
