I loved this meal. We had the guacamole which was incredible and had a very serious kick to it. The top shelf margaritas were also very good and generously sized and fair priced. I had the enchiladas '09 and they were AMAZING! I loved the combination of flavors and the pablano rice and salad were delicious. I will definitely get... More

This is a great place to go for excellent food, drinks, and atmosphere. It is a great place to have drinks on the patio and it is centrally located. The food is always excellent it does not matter what you order you will not be disappointed.

Had dinner with friends on an early Friday evening. The restaurant was crowded and loud. Everything we ate was excellent! Definitely going back and will opt for patio seating if it's available.

I've been to Paloma Blanca many times over a 10 year period. The food has always been fantastic and it's a great location for any type of lunch or dinner. My last visit was a disappointment in that the service was horrible. I believe there was some large group and we had a hard time getting anyone to take our... More

We recently visited San Antonio for four days and made it our mission to try lots of different Mexican places. This place came highly recommended by some colleagues and we visited for Sunday lunch. The restaurant was busy so I recommend a reservation (available via OpenTable). My husband and I shared fajitas and they were excellent. The 'pound' option was... More

OK, I was the member of our group who did not give a five. I read many reviews prior to eating there. I do not share same opinions as those who had terrible service, were disappointed in the chips, etc. My only complaint is that the chicken in the fajita order was dry. We received excellent service from Our waiter,... More

We were all hungry for a great Mexican meal and we found it at Paloma Blanca. The table side guacamole was obviously fresh and flavorful. We had the jalapeño added for an extra "kick". We had a variety of entrees from enchiladas to fajitas to the daily lunch special and everyone was pleased with there choice. Our waiter was also... More

One of my favorite San Antonio experiences is a leisurely lunch or brunch on the patio at Paloma Blanca. The specialty margaritas are excellent, and the food is beautifully prepared and served. The menu is a mix of interior Mexican and Tex-Mex favorites. I especially adore the ceviche, which comes in an extremely generous portion; I often choose it as... More

I've traveled a lot of places in this great country of ours and bipolar this place has the best Mexican food around. The ambience in the restaurant is little upper scale but it gives the fantic Mexican Taste of the cuisine that these folks are known for. You wouldn't miss out greatly if you do not go to this restaurant... More

We love this restaurant.....staff is great and food even better. We had their margaritas which are really good. Then a side of guacamole and each with a cup of pozole verde which is wonderful. Our mains were enchiladas divorciadoes which is one of their specialties. We will definitely return.

Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.
