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.

Everything was fantastic...the ambience, the service, the decor, except the food, which was average. Although it did have good gluten free options, it also seemed to lack spice and flavor, which is a big no-no for Mexican. Even the enchiladas tradicionales, the dish that makes or breaks a restaurant, were a pass. Go here for drinks, and appetizers, but there... More

Choose this place because of reviews being one of San Antonio's best for Mexican and wasn't dissappointed. From the home made chips, great selection of sauces to the highly recommended Enchiladas Number 9 this place delivered. Juan was our server and was great! Get reservations. This place gets busy.

I ate at Paloma Blanca for a business meal. We selected it in part because they have an extensive gluten-free menu which one of my colleagues needed. She appreciated having nearly as many options as the rest of us for her meal. We made a reservation in advance and arrived a bit early, so had to wait in their swanky... More

I've lived in '09 (visitors, look that up) all my life, and started to go to Paloma when it took over the La Fonda location. They moved here, ohhhh, 10 or so years ago. This is the preferred place when my daughter calls and wants to know if I want a marg and some nachos with the grands. Very pleasant... More

Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. 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.
