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! Perfect. My dining partners all enjoyed their meals and margaritas. The atmosphere is casual with... More

Visited tonight with 13 in our party, including two children with food allergies (all nuts and eggs). We had a great table to the back so we didn't feel like our large party was bothering anyone. The service was prompt and attentive. The owner visited the table and was exceptionally helpful especially with the food allergies. He brought out the... 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.

Being in San Antonio again for a different occasion, I had to make sure we ate here again. No waiting for a table and our waitress was very nice. The fajitas were excellent with well seasoned meat and the always good homemade tortillas. The sopapillas are very good here. Being from SC, we don't have authentic Tex-Mex so this was... More

We're thrilled you had a chance to see us again, Cindy! We know South Carolina isn't really known for their Tex-Mex, so it's wonderful you got to enjoy that here.

This is the second visit for me to this restaurant. Both times I've had the El Mofofo which is a marinated beef and pork grill served on a portable flame. Includes grilled onions, green bell peppers and green olives. You also get a generous portion of guacamole, beans and rice, choice of flour or corn tortillas. I also ordered a... More

It's just wonderful you enjoyed both your visits here, Diane!

Los Barios is my go-to when in San Antonio. The chicken mole enchiladas (#9) and the chicken puffed tacos (see photos) simply cannot be beat. I've never tried the "new" upscale location on the northside. When a location has worked for decades, why risk something new. Highly Recommended

Truly authentic Mexican food. My wife loved the charro beans and vegetarian enchiladas. The chicken flautas were also good. The service was good. Plenty of chips and salsa. We have been here before and will keep coming back.
