The very best Enchiladas in San Antonio Moderately priced Great service. Should be in the top 20 restaurants of San Antonio. Upscale local crowd at this one. A nice place. Make sure to order the Tres Leches Cake to experience Mexican Food Heaven.

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.
