Located between the Majestic and Aztec Theaters, good place to visit before a concert. Really like their chips and salsa. Good happy hour. Had the mango pork carnitas tacos which were tasty, but cold. Service was OK. Convenient and satisfying, but not great.

Great atmosphere, mediocre service, garbage quality food. Don't come here if you want distinct flavors or unique eats. Everything you get here you can buy in the grocery store pre made. Atmosphere was nice though, but that's not hard to do anyway on the Riverwalk....More

I had dinner here with a large group and was extremely disappointed. The cheese served with the nachos tasted like the cheese is so disliked in junior high. It tasted like it was strait out of a can. The enchiladas lacked flavor and the guacamole...More

They have a live blues band every day except Mondays. The food isn't that great but the band usually is!

First of all, there was live blues, which all sounds alike after a song or two. It was WAY too loud. We were having to yell to talk to each other, which I don't enjoy. The food was good, and the waiter (Michael) was great!

This is a lively cantina that will make you feel like you are in a small town in Mexico right here in San Antonio. The cocktails are unique and delicious, the food is just what you would expect in a cantina. Barriba sits above the...More
