A-MAZING!!!!! 8/7/2011

It saddens me to say that I am a 6th generation Texan (a 6th generation Helotian/San Antonian at that) and have never stepped foot in this place! The food was awesome! We went on a Saturday night and were seated right away, chips and salsa were on our table before we could get comfortable in our chairs. I decided to order the Taquitos de Puerco and I have a feeling I will be craving these bad boys pretty often! The ingredients were fresh, the meat (roasted pork marinated in fresh herbs) was flavorful, and the presentation was beautiful! My husband had skirt steak with ranchero sauce...no knife necessary! The couple we were with had Enchiladas Verdes and some chicken tacos that they said were also very tasty! We will definitely be back very, very soon!!!!!!!!!! more

One of my favorite restaurants in SA 4/12/2011

I have been in San Antonio for 2 years and I love El Mirosol. The food is gourmet mexican food and the service is inpeccable! If the weather permits, sit outside by the water fountain and enjoy the peacefulness. The chalupa is the best deal $5.95 ( just ordered it for take out) The enchiladas with 3 kinds on one plate are wonderful and the crab salad is a special treat for a mexican restaurant. I have never had anything bad there and have dined there for lunch and dinner at least 30 times! more

Overpiced and bland 9/1/2010

This was all around unpleasant experience that ended with a slap in a face in the form of huge bill. Iced tea: very chlorinated taste. Chips and salsa: Chips ok, salsa = gross with a bad after taste Beef fajita: this was just an odd dish. it was basically strips of beef in what tasted like marinara sauce. Rice: Simply did not like the taste The restaurant itself was not very appealing in terms of color choice and design and obviously caters to a wealthier crowd. However, was NOT worth the cost. more

Best Food, Best Service, Best Drinks! 4/18/2010

Wow, if you want the best and only true authentic mexican restaraunt. This is it!! You can not touch this food anywhere, the food is delicious! The drinks are awesome and the service is wounderful. I just found this place out and will be sharing this with everyone. The quality is nothing but the best when tasting anything from the chips and salsa to anything on the menu and then the drinks. Pros: Food, service, and drinks Cons: can't have enough! more

Tacos a la Parilla !!! 3/21/2010

We've always had a good meal here at El Mirasol. The top shelf margaritas are kick a**!! The other evening I ordered, at a friend's suggestion, the Tacos a la Parilla with Chicken. They were delicious!! May be my new favorite dish!! Pros: Not your typical Mexican fare Cons: Kinda pricey more

Poor customer service 8/19/2008

EL Mirasol Pros: Margaritas Cons: poor customer service and management more

If you enjoy watered down taste at exorbant prices... 6/16/2008

I remember this restaurant from almost a decade ago... it was GREAT! However, I just recently stopped by and was completely disappointed. I ordered mushroom quesadillas -- they smelled great until I bit into them and discovered that the mushrooms were canned. At $9 for a simple appetizer, I would think they would use fresh produce. Ok, whatever, I'll let it go. I then ordered an avocado stuffed with crab and shrimp. Mmmmm, delicioso.... Not so much. A salad at $13, I didn't think I had to ask if it was imitation crab and canned shrimp. Wish I would have! It was disgusting. I ate two bites and had to set it aside. My significant other ordered an enchilada plate and his rice and beans also tasted like box mixes. I can say this -- the service was excellent. The waiter saw that I had not eaten my salad so he asked about it and then took it off the bill. That was very considerate. Pros: Our waiter realized the food was terrible so he removed it from our bill. Cons: The food tastes like poor Russians made it. more

Best Beef in town 1/9/2006

Fantasitis food and wonderful drinks. Great environment especially on the patio. Highly recommend. more

Fantastic food! 6/22/2005

El Mirasol was recommended to us by our son. The food, margaritas and service were great! The prices were reasonable. My husband and I went on a Wednesday evening and had no trouble with parking or crowds and we didn't have (or need) reservations. We are looking forward to dining there, again. more

A Hidden Gem 6/8/2005

By far my favorite mexican restaurant in SA. I take all of my out of town guest here and they love it. I travel in and out of Mexico often enough to appreciate authenic mexican dishes with good flavors and this place has it all. The margaritas are the best! Pros: food, waiters, expensive Cons: parking, small patio more

Doesn't get better than this 5/10/2005

I enjoy this place so much it hurts. The food is more than enough and it's so good that I felt like writing about it!! The service is great and the margaritas will knock your socks off. The ceviche is the best appetizer and I think that the ambience of their patio is the best in town. Try the chipotle enchiladas and you will not be disappointed. Make a reservation!! Pros: Service , Flavor, Ambience more

Great Margaritas, ok food 1/19/2004

The Margarita's really are terrific! Two is enough. Be sure to sit outside, the fountain and ambience is wonderful. The food, being tasty, is rather on the skimpy side. So, be sure to order appetizers, or you will leave hungry. Pros: good Parking, Nice outdoor seating, great margaritas more

fun place! 9/25/2002

this is truly an awesome mexican restaurant! great service, the BEST margaritas...and the green enchiladas are to die for!! parking sucks though. more

Excellent 8/16/2002

Best chipolte sauce in town; excellent on enchiladas. Friendly, welcoming serving staff. Powered-up Margaritas with attitude. Splashing, soothing fountains found near outside ""wait"" deck and next to brightly decorated, covered patio area. Music is never loud but Latin-pumping good tunes. My new fav restaurant in SA! Pros: excellent food always, fresh, fun tastes, moderate price Cons: Outside area not big, can't eat on deck more

Authentic 6/4/2002

If you're looking for authentic Mexican cuisine this is the place. They also have their fair share of tex-mex for those who don't want the authentic stuff. The atmosphere is great and their Mirasol Margartias are the BEST! It does get crowded, especially on weekends, so if you're hungry go early or expect to wait. To me, this is the best Mexican restaurant in town. Pros: great food, good service, good atmosphere Cons: wait, parking (not enough) more
