Still one of my favorites in San Antonio. Been going there at least 15 years, never a bad meal. Out of town friends always love it!

Awesome Mexican food and great margaritas. Try the O 9er ! If it's a nice day, eat outside on the patio.

Some of the food was very good, while some were only mediocre, the fried flour tortilla dessert was inedible, hard like a rock. Service was ok but not very attentive. I drove here on recommendation from a friend, but would not come back.

Food was good but not worth the 45 wait for a table. We had the guac, queso, mole enchiladas, enchiladas verde, puntas puerco, and mushroom enchiladas. The Verde and mole were the best items. Service once seated was prompt and attentive.

Love the food here as well as the outdoor ambiance on a pretty afternoon. I had the chicken enchiladas with two different salsas. Both good and rich, served with rice and beans. I had enough to take home and have the next day for lunch....More

It is an error to confuse Tex-Mex of which in our view, Paloma Blanca offers the best example in San Antonio, with true Mexican Cuisine (see our review of Mixtli), but Paloma Blanca does Tex-Mex superbly. We entertained a group of six. Seating permitted conversation...More

Since 1997, Paloma Blanca Mexican Cuisine has become well-known for offering much more than traditional "Tex-Mex" fare. Tempting offerings include items as varied as grilled snapper, enchiladas verdes, pozole soup, hand made flautas and tacos al pastor. For margaritas by a cool fountain, a relaxing dinner on the terrace or appetizers in our hacienda-style dining rooms, Paloma Blanca invites you to enjoy our autentico brand of Mexican cuisine and hospitality.
