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

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

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.

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!

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

This place is the BEST!!!! Margaritas rock, they will put you on your butt so be careful!. The chipotle enchiladas are yummmmmy and I am not an enchilada person. The cilantro enchiladas mmmmm, and the shrimp taco's can't be beat, chicken nachos devine! Service is great and definately worth going over and over!

EL Mirasol
13489 Blanco Rd.
San Antonio TX 78209

Complaint Description:
Ten Minutes after placing my order, I was informed that they were out of
Enchiladas Nortenas! I asked my waitress what she recommended and she
recommended the most expensive plate on the menu! I asked her if I could get
that at the same price as Enchiladas Nortenas and she said no, so I asked to
see the manager and he said no. I love their Margaritas, their food is good,
their service has always been extremely poor!!! The management doesn't seem
to care!!! The Margaritas are in fact so good that most people including
myself have always overlooked the extremely poor service!!! They should have
told me on the spot that they were out of Enchiladas Nortenas instead of
waiting 10 minutes to come back out! Needles to say, I will never step foot
in that establishment again!!! I also posted a blog with KTSA Jack Riccardi
The DISH and plan to call in to his show this week! If only El Mirasol's
service was as good as their Margaritas!!!!!!

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.

I must say, at these prices and in this setting, I expected more. My memories of the place are wonderful but it seems like they are cutting corners. If you want this caliber of food, go to Taco Bell. Save yourself some coin.

Pros: Our waiter realized the food was terrible so he removed it from our bill.

Cons: The food tastes like poor Russians made it.

The Lobster Enchiladas were absolutely delicious! Watch out for the margaritas though..they are very strong. Great place for family and a group of friends.

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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.
