We have been going to Alamo Cafe for 16 years. The fresh made tortillas are hot and just the right thickness. Recent change in menu bringing back old favorite, Chicken Avocado Salad. My husband often orders the Chicken Fried Steak. We have attend parties in the party room and service has been very good.

The Alamo Cafe was a great place for our business dinner after a long day of client meetings. The wait staff were welcoming and attentive. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing. The fajitas were grilled to perfection. The tortillas were fresh made. The margaritas were savory.

This place has one extremely important thing going for it! Consistency! Waiters are sometimes good, sometimes bad, but the food is always exactly the same. This is the most important thing in the restaurant business--let the customers get exactly what they expect, every time! Great food!

My husband had the rellenos they were crispy and gooey and delicious. On the suggestion from other people on TA I got the chicken fried steak. I thought it was just okay. I wished I had gotten the quesadillas. The chips and salsa were very tasty. Not at the top of my list for Mexican food.. except for the rellenos.

Despite the amazingly wonderful house-made tortillas, our dinner this time was a disappointment. The black beans were so highly salted I couldn't eat them. My companion also reported his tortilla soup was over salted. The brisket quesadillas and shrimp enchiladas were fine, but sometimes little things can spoil an experience.

This was my first time here, my boyfriend on the other hand was born & raised in SA. He ordered the CFS & I the 2 enchiladas & Mexican rice. CFS was small, the enchiladas were small as well, the rice is parboiled & being from Louisiana where rice is a staple, it sucked. Service was great, Mike was our... More

Many visits here previously, most often for quick business lunches. This time traffic on I-10 & 410 was gridlocked at 5pm and I headed toward the Alamo Café for dinner. Quick attentive service and great food. Chicken "sizzlin" fajitas were tasty. Red sauce (not really salsa) for chip dipping is terrific!

I came here after work one day (around 7:30/8pm), primarily because I past it everyday and wanted to check it out. I was able to sit right down and the place was about 1/4 full. As you can tell from my pictures, the inside is kinda "blah" but serves it's purchase with open seating, TVs, and a bit of a... More
