GOOD FOOD – FOOD GOOD NOT MANY CHOISES ON MENUE THE SERVICE SLOW GIRL TAKING CARE OF BIG PARTY NEXT TO US AND FORGOT ABOUT US WILL GO BACK AND HOPEFULLY SERVICE WILL BE BETTER
HORRIBLE – DO NOT EAT AT TOMATILLO's unless you like raw meat and manager's that argue with customers! They served me a barely cooked picadillo meat taco. Unfortunately, I had already eatten half before I noticed...The brillant manager on duty, explained to me that the meat was not raw- that it turns pink like that when it is OVERCOOKED?!?! Seriously? Basically, not only was my food bad, but then the manager argued with me instead of just saying, she was sorry for my experience and attempt to make it better right away. I'm pretty sure she never learned that rule that the customer is right. Not until I told her I would post my experience review did she change her attitude and say that she would have a manager call me. I won't hold my breath about receiving a call. To give her a bit of credit, in the end (after I telling her I would be posting a review) she did not charge me for my dinner. Bottom line, there are waaay too many other great Mexican Restaurants in SA - why risk a repeat of my experience? I encourage you to try one of the many other Mexican restaurants nearby on Broadway instead. I'm giving the service a frown-y face rating bad rating because of this manager - The waitress was actually very good.
Tomatillos is still my favorite – My friends and I eat at Tomatillos for lunch at least once a week. The food is always good and fast. Then I come with my family at least once a month. We love the Fajitas!! We also have tried some of the new things on the menu and some specials. Sometimes we like different things to try. And the desserts are great, try the fried cookie dough, they are sooo good. I love the orhcids in the margaritas and my husband likes his big glass of draft beer. The kids have a good time, and the decorations are really neat!!
Tomatillos --Still great – My family and I had dinner at Tomatillos last week. We had not been there in a few years. But we will definitely be back. Our food was excellent, and served hot. The service was also very good, they took very good care of us. We had some of their Partida Margaritas served tableside, they were so good we had two each. We definitely recommend everyone to go to Tomatillos, especailly if you are like us and have not been there in a few years. We will be back!!
Fast service – The price is average.
Food taste is average.
Food usually comes out really fast.
Salsa and chips are very good.
I will go back.
Believe it – No way, never again. I've never been to this restaurant before but visited because of a wedding dinner. We had a limited menu to pick from because of the event. We were a little late so we didn't get to eat the appetizers. The plate was okay. Maybe my expectations were a bit high but they were located on Broadway across from the Witte Museum and located near Alamo Heights. What we got for the price we paid, we could've gone to Taco Cabana and got the same amount of food, FRESH and cheaper by $6. It was weird how fast the food came out. We didn't get to eat the appetizer so when they brought me the bill, I noticed they didn't give me credit for it. The manager immediately closed her eyes and shook her head and simply said "That's the price of the plate, sorry". What kind of customer service is that? If she wasn't going to give me credit for the food NOT eaten that I paid for, she could've offered a coupon for a free appetizer for my next visit, a gift card for the amount of the appetizer OR offered to have them cook it for me to take to-go. Not very good customer service, would've gone to Mi Tierra's in the Market Square. Cheaper for the same food, their salsa is way better and the tostada chips don’t come from a bag, they make them fresh and waaay better customer service. On top of that, Its located in downtown San Antonio. I’m Mexican-American and do not recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food for a good price.
Excellent Establishment – Wow, I'm not sure what restaurant Yaxx stepped into, but it wasn't Tomatillos. I've been going to Tomatillos for several years and have never had a bad experience. The food is great, the ambience is lively, and I always have a great experience.
It's convenient to my office downtown and it's one of our favorite places to go for lunch.
It's a great restaurant and does get packed on the weekends, so maybe that's why yaxx found themselves waiting a bit; how loooong is lllllloooooong? I go there to take my time, be attended to, and RELAX.
Overall i think this restaurant is fantastic. Don't believe everything you read, including my comments, visit Tomatillos and make your own conclusions.
Horrible service, rude staff, disgusting food! – This is the worst "restaurant" I've ever been in San Antonio...
The host was so rude and didn't say Hello, Welcome or nothing... just looked at us and says "yes"? What!? How do you say just yes!! you're supposed to say " Hello, Welcome or something similar to greet the people!
We had an event early this year in there... close to 40 people... and there was this lady... OMG! her name was Helen or something like that... she was rude and by the way she was looking at some of the people in our tables, she was profiling...
Then, the food... disgusting and overpriced! and COLD!!
It took a loooooooong time to served drinks that actually I went to the bar by myself to get us some drinks!
I do not recommend this place! don't go there... It is actually a waste of time and money!
First time... LAST TIME, Period!
Too bad they called themselves "best places in San Antonio" Yeah right... to scare customers away!!!
Best TEX-MEX in San Antonio – I've come to Tomatillos on several occasions. Rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, and when I feel like eating great Tex-Mex Food! I love their margaritas, the festive atmosphere, and the great service! If you haven't been there, you're definitely missing out!
Best Mexican food I've found in SA – We've lived in San Antonio for about 5 years now and have tried many of our friends' recommendations and have found ourselves to be disappointed most of the time. Tomatillos kept popping up as one to try but we'd never been there. We went for the first time the other night and found out what our friends were talking about - the food is probably the best Mexican we've had in San Antonio (and I'm picky since we're Texans), the margaritas were fantastic, and it was a great experience overall. It made enough of an impression on me that I felt I need to write a review; we've definitely found our Mexican food of choice in SA!
