I was meeting friends from Georgetown, Tx for lunch and we decided upon Lisa's Mexican Restaurant. I had googled looking for a restaurant with flare and this one struck my interest. We had never been and I was nervous since our friends from out of town were joining us for brunch at this place. I had a Bloody Mary, chalupa... More

This is always a family favorite for dinner but took a friend to lunch check it out for a possible location for a party. The place was busy with many from the local university and other business & tradesmen. Lunch was up to their high standard and served quickly.

Read reviews that this place has the best pozole in San Antonio. Ate there today and found the pozole anything but great. It was tasteless with no sign of any spices and was watery and weak. The restaurant's salsa was also tasteless. To add insult to injury, the service was horrible. Every time I needed something I had to flag... More

I'm sorry to hear you were less than impressed with our pozole.

Ever since we got married at Lisa's Mexican Restaurant in September my wife and I have been enjoying this beautiful place. The muted lights, the excellent aproned wait staff, and the impeccable linens, all help enhance the enjoyment of the meal. My favorites are the tender pork with red chillies, and the chicken soup. All traditional Mexican food home style,... More

Thursday is Margherita night, and the frozen Margheritas did not disappoint! All of the appetizers were awesome, and my burrito was the best I've ever had!!!

Again a favorite with our visitors, including a 11 & 13 yr old. The mixed Fajitas were a hit as were the puffy tacos, the shrimp stuffed chili relleno. As normal their margaritas were enjoyable.

Got sat pretty quickly for a Friday night. The place is over saturated with tables leaving you almost no space to sit without bumping into a fellow patron. The chips and salsa came quickly, but unfortunately were stale and not very flavorful. Then it took over 10 minutes to have a waitress take our drink order. It was busy, but... More

Great strawberry mojito. The enchiladas verde was flavorful. The jalapeño margarita was also full of flavor. Very smooth and the favor of the jalapeño was spicy. My only complaint was it was in a martini glass and should have been in a bigger more margarita glassware.

Hi there, Greta! Although I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed your flavorful enchiladas and margarita, I'm sorry that the size of our glasses was a bit of a downer.
