The food and the service were very good. My combination plate with puffy taco, cheese enchilada and tamale were great. Decent bloody mary's. My father ordered the Cabrito (goat) and he really enjoyed it. If you are a tourist, don't let the area the restaurant it located in fool you. Parking is decent behind the building and across the street.... More

This review is not about the food, although it is great, it is about the service and management. My church went there on a Sunday for lunch without a reservation.

Overall the food was pretty good, but the puffy tacos were very disappointing. They were not cooked enough to be crisp and fell apart the moment they were served. Then I had kind of soggy shards of masa with my taco salad (what my taco plate turned into as it fell apart). These were my first ever puffy tacos and... More

It's disappointing that our puffy tacos failed to impress -- especially since you had such high hopes for them. From your description, it doesn't seem like we put our best foot forward with our puffy tacos, so we're sorry to hear how your visit played out. It certainly seems like an off day, so we hope to welcome you back... More

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.

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.
