I was very pleased with the service that we received at this restaurant. We were on a school trip and it was very quick, delicious and efficient. The food was fresh and amazing. Thank you San Antonio Bar and Grill

I will say that the service was good, but slow, but to their credit they had a school field trip in there when I went. So, that's reasonable. The chips and salsa are good, but my entree was VERY salty and soaked in soy or teriyaki or something. Could not eat much of it. My boyfriend said the same about... More

This is just what you would expect at most above average Mexican restaurants. The Tex-Mex meals are made to please the mass but they are well proportioned, flavorful and inexpensive. They beer selection is good and the el grande Marquita's are the way to go! I find the step above is the wait staff. They are always helpful and courteous.... More

Four for dinner and no one had any complaints. Salsa and chips and the salsa had a little nip, which was great. Fajitas were good, loved the Plato Maya platter. Their rice and beans were great also. Choice of hot sauces. Fast service, friendly waiter and reasonably priced. I would eat here again.

Ate at the Crystal City location weekday evening. Was noisy until all the happy hour people departed. Chips were fresh but the rest of the food was just ok. Fajitas were good but another in our party had cheese and beef burrito plate and the "meat" was not very tasty. Service was acceptable.

Stopped in for dinner. Really good, quick service, the food was fine. Their chips are fresh and crispy, the salsa is nice and spicy, but not too hot.

This is right next to the AMC Hoffman 22, and we were in and out in well under and hour; this was a plus. The décor needs work. The ceilings are very high, like, 20 feet, and it seems that the restaurant is in a temporary space, with a big portable A/C unit right near the front door. The space... More

I can't claim to be a connoisseur of authentic Mexican or Tex Max cuisine, but San Antonio has a wide range of Latin-influenced dishes, and what I had was delicious. The service was attentive but unobtrusive, and the atmosphere was laid back. I'm not used to chiles rellenos being so stuffed that they're served open-faced, but wow. The beef stuffing,... More

My husband and I have dined at this restaurant a handful of times, and sometimes just enjoyed a few drinks there before or after a movie.
