Good Mexican food at reasonable prices and close to downtown and the Riverwalk. The enchiladas with the Tomatillo green sauce is the best as is the rice and beans.

Great restaurant to get Mexican food for lunch or dinner near Brackenridge Park. Our meals were very tasty! Even our vegan found something to eat (vegetarian beans, rice).

This is a pretty restaurant and the wait staff did a good job with 4 little old ladies wanting separate checks. I ordered the tortilla soup, and it barely reached room temperature. All of the other dishes were the same way. The soup was good, but it should be steaming when it reaches the table, and so should the fajitas.... More

This restaurant has become my family's favorite. Anytime we are all together and we ask everyone where they want to go eat, it's a unanimous vote for Tomatillos. It is great Mexican food regardless of what you get. My favorite is the Enchilladas Verdes, but everyone has their favorite. They also have just about any Margarita that you want, and... More

The food used to be great here. They made a wonderful guacamole table side with a tequila shot infused (don't knock it, it was delicious!) but not any more. In fact, the whole menu is different and not an improvement. I assume it's under different management because the food is bland and doesn't have that homemade taste like it used... More

Went there for dinner and was pleasantly surprised. They had a great assortment of margaritas we tried several different ones and they all were great. Got the beef fajitas and they were excellent. Chili con queso wasn't the best but we were overall pleased and when I got the bill I was shocked at the value. Happy hour is a... More

My family and I had just arrived into town after driving for almost 6 hours figured we would try it out...YUCK! The service was very slow and a little unprofessional. We all ordered something different (that's 6 different dishes) and each every single one of them was disgusting. How do you mess up bean and cheese nachos? How in the... More

I love Tomatillos!! I come here at least twice a month to treat myself to am amazing Taco Salad. The queso cannot be beaten either! The people are great, the environment is relaxed, and the food never disappoints!

The portions were very plentiful. All four of us ate about half of what was served. Of course, we had an appetizer and chips first. The appetizer had 3 small scoops of guacamole, but since there were 4 of us our waitress added an extra at no charge. Very nice atmosphere, attentive service and good food.
