I was stuck in San Antonio for a series of very boring work meetings but lunch made it all worthwhile. I had the Puffy Fish Tacos and they were incredible! The flour tortillas are thick but puffed up as if the air inside the tortilla had expanded. This place has totally ruined me for all other tacos from now on.... More

I never had a puffy taco before , but I can't say that any more. The chicken puffy taco was wonderful. A unique texture that's not too crunchy or soft.... the goldilocks of tacos... just right! Our server Josephine was a great host for our first visit. But you shouldn't pass up on the tortilla soup... it is delicious! They... More

Not many places serve puffy tacos. It seems to be a San Antonio thing and these are the real deal. Will be back for more...

From the habanero pepper margarita to the spicy beef fajita meat and deliciously fresh guacamole, Henry's makes high marks. They handled our group of nine with no problem and everyone said they loved their meal. The queso is worth it too! Highly recommend!

This was my first visit to Henry's and I will return. The standard platter was excellent with choice of carne guisada or shredded chicken top options. Meal came with charro beans and rice, both very good.

It's happened to us all, hasn't it? "You're going to XYZ place?" asks friend. "You have to see/eat/touch XYZ thing." In this case, Henry's Puffy Tacos was the XYZ thing. Said friend gushed about 'puffy tacos' (native to San Antonio area, perhaps?). All I can say to her is....keep the recommendations coming. Two of us went to the Express location.... More

Henry's has great service, a warm atmosphere and pretty darn good margaritas. But its the Puffy Taco that you want. If you order just Puffy Tacos, they'll usually be at your table within about 3 minutes. Unreal. Took longer to get drinks from the bar. Other dishes take a normal time, but its the puffy tacos you want. It is... More

We went on a busy Saturday afternoon. We had to wait about15-20 minutes for a table. When we were seated we were served quickly. We ordered the 3 puffy tacos. Very good. I got beef fajita, carne gusada and a shredded chicken all with Cheese and guac. Very good. I would say the care gusada was the best. Queso and... More
