Fantastic meal in a wonderful atmosphere. The service is top notch, the Mexican Plate, topped off with the famous Puffy Taco is worth traveling a long distance for by itself. Compliment it with a great drink and you won't want to leave!

This was our first time dining here and we had never heard of puffy tacos. The food was delicious and the service was above and beyond. My favorite was the charro beans! I wish we would have had room for dessert but we will be back soon :)

It is definitely a Tex-Mex flavor. Generous on the cumin and a good deal of fried food. The service is good, the portions are abundant and the menu is ample . Had a fun evening

Puffy Tacos are a unique San Antonio tradition. Henry's are delicious and authentic. Enjoy the picado filling on puffy corn tortillas. Not a low calorie dish, but fun to try and enjoy. Only in San Antonio

I grew up on this side of San Antonio back in the 70s, but there was no Henry's Puffy Tacos. It sits about 100 yards from the former site of the McDonalds's restaurant where I used to work. We had the 3 Puffy Taco Plate -- chicken, beef, and shredded chicken. We also had a side of guacamole. No sodas,... More

Great food, you can't go there too often and much as you would want, as this place can dish up some calories with those puffy tacos and chips. Great restaurant.

Known for their puffy tacos, and know why, they are good! We had the TexMex plate with one enchilada, one beef puffy tacos, beans and rice. The taco was excellent, the cheese enchilada was ok. The borracho beans were excellent too. Mary provided the best service, along with a super Margarita! Ambiance was festive, crowded for a Tuesday night, but... More

I was stuck in San Antonio for a series of very boring work meetings but lunch made it all worthwhile. I had the Puffy Fish Tacos and they were incredible! The flour tortillas are thick but puffed up as if the air inside the tortilla had expanded. This place has totally ruined me for all other tacos from now on.... More

I never had a puffy taco before , but I can't say that any more. The chicken puffy taco was wonderful. A unique texture that's not too crunchy or soft.... the goldilocks of tacos... just right! Our server Josephine was a great host for our first visit. But you shouldn't pass up on the tortilla soup... it is delicious! They... More
