The Mexican food there is no better or worse than most others, except that the chile sauce on the enchiladas is great. The main reason we love it is the outstanding chicken tortilla soup and the brown rice. Really good crispy beef tacos. Been eating there for nearly 12 years.

One of my top favorite places for a long time! Healthier Tex-Mex with friendly service in a comfortable atmosphere :) Enchiladas, salads, puffy tacos, tortilla soup- all wonderful!! And the lunch specials are a steal. Do yourself a favor & have some yummy chips & salsa here soon.

Patio is a healthier alternative to mexican food. So it does taste different, there is no fat added to the beans, they are just seasoned mashed beany goodness and You can request sprouts in place of lettuce, the rice is brown rice, not white.. etc. I hold the standard of all puffy tacos to Patio.. they really are the best,...

Never been here. We stopped in for lunch. It is a very colorful restaurant. Service was fast and friendly. Well, if they are famous for Puffy's taco's, let's give them a try. They were excellent. Delicious. This is a fun restaurant. Good food and good service. Prices reasonable. Give this restaurant a try

La Fiesta may not blow you away with a fancy, frilly, upscale atmosphere but I dare you to find a better puffy taco! Worth the trip if you ask me.

Stopped in here on the recommendation of a coworker...and it will be a part of my regular restaurants to visit when in San Antonio. The chicken puffy tacos were amazing! Flavourful, fresh, and reasonably priced.

Stopped here after work with a business associate at the end of the day. Had the beef enchidlada dish and it was very good. Service was good and food arrived as expected. Would recommend this place if you are in the area.

The puffy tacos are the best in town. The enchiladas, rice and beans are delicious. The tortilla soup is yummy. Very good chips and salsa. We will return.

Four of us had a great meal. The two men had awesome fajitas with lots of vegetables plus a few slices of potatoes with their fajita platter. My friend had a 3 different enchiladas on her dinner plate and I had a very fresh chalupa with tasty ranch style chicken, with lots of guacamole, sour cream and cheese. The margaritas... More
