This is one of life's unanswerable questions, so let's try and answer it! What is San Antonio's best Mexican restaurant and why?

I always crave Salsalito because of their cold red salsa that's is ooozing cilantro! I also LOVE the green sauce from Mamacita's, but I think their food lacks flavor. One of my new faves is Amorcitos on the access road of 1604. Their Border Enchiladas are great!

There are many fine Mexican Restrants in SA. My personal favorite is Los Barrios. They are located on Blanco Road at San Angelo Street, 4 blocks south of Basse Road on the NW corner.

We've tried a few since our arrival here 3 months ago, but the one that we keep going back to and is my fav Mex I've EVER had is El Chapparel. We go to the one in Helotes on Bandera Rd...just a hop skip and a jump north of 1604. EVERYTHING I've had there is awesome!!!

Oh gosh- this is so hard to answer!! It totally depends, IMO, on what you are in the mood for. Quesadillas? I love the ons at Rio Mambo- nice chunks of white meat chix breast w/ fresh pico de gallo and gooey cheese....
Enchiladas- (hole in the wall type place) Piedras Negras, Breakfast tacos- Taco taco. My husband always orders fajitas, so he's have to chime in for that.
Cool atmosphere- Rosarios

Amorcito's is just east of Bitters on the access road. It has been open about 6 months. They have green sauce which is really good. It is a little pricey, but you can get good specials on certain days of the week, and the lunch menu isn't bad. It is owned by a guy who also owns a restaurant in Pasadena called Border Grill. We really enjoy it.

I also agree, Los Barrios and El Chapparal are both worth the trip over!
