We found this place while driving around San Antonio on our family spring break trip. We stopped in for dinner and loved the festive decor and atmosphere. The service was just okay but we did notice they were extremely busy. When we asked if it was due to Spring Break they said yes and that they are not used to... More

We have eaten here several times during our visits to San Antonio. It has good Tex Mex food. It is not as busy as the River Walk or the Marketplace. It is a little loud in the restaurant but still a great place for visiting with friends and family.

We went on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was at capacity. Service was a good as could have been expected given how crowed it was. Since there was a wait we ordered drinks at the bar, but had to pay for them at the bakery counter which turned out to be quite an ordeal. Only one person could process... More

We went on a Friday night since the wait at Mi Tierra was so long. We were seated immediately and the service was great. The prices are reasonable and the food was delicious. I also had the sopapillas which you should definitely try. Don't get deterred by the security guard out by the parking lot. He made us feel safe.

Been here many times for dinner, however it's time we tried their breakfast. The atmosphere is great and artistic. Love the rich Mexican decor throughout the restaurant. The food was delicious and the prices are average.

Had a group of 20 or 22 people and they seated us promptly upstairs. Rudy (Rodolfo) was our only waiter and he did an excellent job! He worked hard the entire time. Food was quite good - everyone seemed to enjoy their meal. Price including tip was $345 - so about $17 per person. Owners or managers were quite friendly... More

So, the parking lot was packed but I managed to get in and get seated fairly quickly. And the food was okay, but a bit overpriced for what I got. Two major reasons I won't go back: (a) they give you a small bowl of chips and (b) they seem to put no tequila in the margarita. For the chips,... More

Stopped here after a long day at the Alamo and Riverwalk. We were looking for a place away from the hustle of the tourist crowd. This was not far. Very festive. Good variety on the menu. We even got a song from a mariachi quartet (for a small $).

Put this eatery on your bucket list! I lived in San Antonio for many years and this place was a 2 to 3 times a week visit for good food. Moved out of the San Antonio area 19 years ago, visit occasionally. This was our first stop when arriving in San Antonio this trip. Please do yourselves a favor, take... More

Description
At Pico de Gallo, our high standards were set over 75 years ago when Pete Cortez, a native of Guadalajara, Jalisco opened his first restaurant, Mi Tierra. In time, popularity of the restaurant grew and a new, more spacious location had to be purchased. Today, our family owns four restaurants - La Margarita, Pico de Gallo, Viva Villa Taqueria and Mi Tierra, and Pete and Cruz's children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren still uphold the same standards that were set years ago. We are still revered as one of the best Mexican food restaurants to visit, and provide a unique cultural ambience that is fun for locals and tourists alike. Conveniently located in the heart of the Alamo city, we invite you to bring your family and friends to experience everything that is Pico de Gallo.
