I went back to this restaurant recently and tried the cheese enchiladas....they were so very, very good! I got mine with cheddar cheese, but you have a mozzerello alternative, too.

We have been come to El Mirasol for years and have made a point of coming here even when we didn't live here. In our opinion it is the best Mexican food in SA, and worthy of visiting from anywhere you are staying. We prefer the original location over the new Alon location for ambiance and familiarity. Food quality is... More

Went for our anniversary, nice atmosphere and quick service. Lobster, shrimp, and snapper enchiladas were good. My husband enjoyed his nachos. Best margaritas I've had by far. You only need one lol. Their tres leches cake was great too.

I ate here with my Bible Study group of friends Saturday night. I had reserved our tables ahead of time and they were ready as soon as we arrived. Service was excellent! All the staff was super helpful and friendly. I had the chicken enchiladas and they were great! Margaritas are a little pricey but are very good. Overall, it... More

Firstly, no one at hostess stand at noon...big mistake. See picture. A waiter finally saw us and seated us. Pretty and new place. Waiter was friendly. I ordered the shrimp tacos but they brought me fish tacos. And the charro beans were lukewarm at best. Couldn't find the waiter again so we flagged down lady who turned out to be... More

I have been eating at El Mirasol for years. Service is consistently good. Quality of the food has never been an issue. Lots of menu choices to fit any palette. They have a nice variety of hot sauces, but you have to ask for them because they only bring one style out with the free tortilla chips. Their flavored margaritas... More

You will not be disappointed. The Margarita's pack a punch. The Snapper Veracruz & Lobster Enchiladas are fantastic. Friends had the steak and raved about the quality of the meet. I highly recommend dining in the outside patio (but not on the raised deck area).

For some reason, Trip Advisor does not recognize this restaurant on Military Hwy and it should because this is the real deal! So maybe El Mirasol on Blanco gets credit for my 5 star rating intended for Una Cocina but if you read this review and want the best Mexican food you can eat, go to Military Highway and enjoy....

I wasn't planning on writing a review, but here it is with the sun rising on the next day, and last night's meal is still sitting as an uncomfortable lump in my stomach after several hours of no sleep due to indigestion. First off, the setting is quite nice and clean, well-lit and inviting. The service was excellent and attentive,... More

The young manager made sure our margaritas were perfect. The staff was exceptional. This is the best Mexican in San Antonio. Period. La Fogata was sold, then went downhill. So the La Fogata founders opened this place and put their creativity and culinary prowess on steroids. The finest Mexican food you will find north of The Rio Grande.

Thank Chuck N
