The food and the service were very good. My combination plate with puffy taco, cheese enchilada and tamale were great. Decent bloody mary's. My father ordered the Cabrito (goat) and he really enjoyed it. If you are a tourist, don't let the area the restaurant...More

This review is not about the food, although it is great, it is about the service and management. My church went there on a Sunday for lunch without a reservation. We had 30 people and they seated us in less than 15 minutes. They had...More

It has been many years since I've been to Los Barrios, and it does not disappoint! Started with a frozen Sangria Swirl Margarita. Excellent! Wanted another, but refrained since I was driving. I ordered the Enchiladas Verdes and oh my, I love their tomatillo sauce!...More

We were there last Thursday and had Nachos and enchiladas. Everything was excellent and service was great too. Price was right and House margaritas perfect. We will be back.

Los Barrios has some of the best local authentic Mexican food in San Antonio. They do have the best beef puffy tacos. Their enchiladas are outstanding too. They have wonderful lunch specials and Early bird specials.
