I didn't hate it but it didn't wow me. Ultimately it was fairly expensive for the amount and quality of food that we got. I don't regret going but I wouldn't go out of my way to go again.

Really good empanadas. Wonderful pastry shell. Bean soup is delicious. Dessert empanadas superb. This place is a real gem. One of my favorites. Eat here, treat yourself. You'll be glad. Service is always good too.

I have had the empanadas at catered events. I never ate inside the restaurant. Nobody makes a better empanada in San Antonio than they do. Service was okay. Food was fabulous'

We were recently visiting San Antonio and decided to eat at Beto's because of a recommendation from a local. The food was okay. My fish taco was skimpy on the fish and the flavor was just ordinary.

We visited Beto's on a recent Friday evening with a group of five adults (one in a wheelchair), one child, and one infant needing a highchair. We arrived around 6:30 and had no problem getting an inside table. There was nice entertainment from a man playing a keyboard and singing. The service was good. The food was ok. I really... More

Just south of the SAT airport, is a quaint restaurant specializing in Latin fare. We enjoyed tacos, quesidias and the best empanadas we've ever had. The crust is light and fluffy like a croissant, and the fillings are fabulous! They are so good, order 2. The staff is friendly and efficient. We shall return to try more empanadas!

My husband and I hadn't been to Beto's in awhile because it is no longer in our running path but I'm so glad we returned. The food was outstanding- the fish tacos, empanadas, and Caesar salad were all great. If you go, be sure you get the chimichurri sauce. It has an unusual pizazz. Besides the food, there are two...

This is definitely a local's place. I had not been here in awhile and was craving their nachos. They put poblano sauce on them, so they are to die for and the best in the city. I usually get the mix chicken and beef, but my friend does not eat beef. So we ordered the chicken and vegetable combo. While... More

Introduced a friend to Beto's last night and she loved her beef empanada. I had the fish taco and it was refreshing with a great taste. Margarita was just okay.. This place has a huge outdoor covered area with fans, a stage for performers and it's on little bar.

Great service, good food. The combo two is a great value & gives a wide choice. I had the beef & red poblano empanadas and a beef fajita. Excellent combo. My wife had the quesadilla & an empanada that was equally good. The yucca fries make a great appetizer.
