Pericos Mexican Restaurant
10820 Bandera Rd, San Antonio, TX 78250, United States
Review №1

Great place....the caldo de rez is fabulous and so are the tortillas

Review №2

We are only eating at restaurant with outdoor dining. Pericos has a nice outdoor patio. We enjoyed their lunch specials. Good beef enchiladas. The corn tortillas are awesome. We have been going here for years never disappoints

Review №3

Pericos is one of my go-to Mexican restaurants. The food always hits the spot. The puffy tacos were my choice today & they didn't disappoint. My companion was wowed by the beef fajitas. I just wish my day would've allowed for a Parrot Tail. Next time, for sure!

Review №4

Service was good. Food was not as good as before the Covid Shutdown. They also now charge for chips and salsa before your meal.

Review №5

We grabbed a family fajita pack to go last night and spent $80 last night (included $10 tip) that's supposed to feed 4-6 people is what the manager claims. We had a total of 12 tortillas for 15 pieces of meat. So we made 5 fajitas from it with 3 pieces per tortilla. Normally when we go there I get a fajita plate for myself and I easily get 3 full fajitas just off one plate for $17. I could have bought 4 of those for the same price and got 12+ fajitas. The manager told me it feeds up to 6. Who puts 2 pieces of meat and only eats one fajita for dinner? Most of the box in the picture is onions and peppers. Saddest dinner in months.

Review №6

First of all we were stuck in traffic for four hours from Austin to San Antonio we're taking my mother in and out to eat the traffic was very frustrating we were very hungry we intended to go to another restaurant but ended up at Betty goes because the other restaurant closed. We are so glad that we ended up at Pericos the drinks were excellent the food was excellent but the best part of our experience was the service. Angela our waitress was very attentive she was fast on her feet, very sweet even though were a little agitated she was very patient with us, She even called the manager out to greet us I thought she was top notch!

Review №7

Pericos has always been a personal staple of mine always great food, staff and service. Rene held it down behind the bar! Thanks again.

Review №8

Took off a star because they didn't service any chips and salsa when we sit down but in the long run that's okay save some calories. We sat outside under the oak trees. Umbrellas would have been nice. But very friendly wait staff and the best Tex-Mex cheese enchiladas I've had in San Antonio in a long time. Good margarita also

Review №9

Angela was our waitress and she was awesome! We had been on the road a long time and were a bit hangry but Angela made our time here well worth it. Great food, great drinks and awesome atmosphere! I recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for good food, good drinks and awesome service!

Review №10

I don't remember when they started charging for chips and salsa. The flour tortillas are not as they used to be either. When your entree arrives they don't offer you any salsa for your meal. On a positive note, Rene at the bar is awesome.

Review №11

Have not been out since the COVID started and our first place was Pericos. I must say our server Andrew was on point and very attentive while bringing stuff without us asking. He continuously checked in on us and made us feel very welcomed. Excellent service Andrew we will be back to visit.Thank you,Chris C

Review №12

I had the cheese enchilada plate for lunch, very good. The ice tea is different than most restaurants. FYI - they are now charging for chips and salsa. Overall a very pleasant experience, the server was very attentive.

Review №13

Food was good, though I've never been to a Mexican restaurant that charges for chips and salsa. When we got it it wasn't normal salsa, just beans, some Chipotle salsa and a spicy salsa. Atmosphere was good but rarely saw our waiter

Review №14

Went with my family for a birthday, it is beautiful and the food is great. I enjoyed the Enchiladas de Mole, two of my favorites. It also cost less than I thought for four adults. My new favorite place.

Review №15

Food was Amazing we were seated outside on the patio 10ft between us and the nearest table.Waiters wore mask very nice. And all people outside had on mask. Very impressed.

Review №16

I've had better food from a gas station. Albeit I ordered to go. For the price I paid, around $50, the quality of food was terrible. The tortillas were hard corn and flour, one of the omelets I ordered had several pieces of egg shell in it, the potatoes in each of the 3 plates I ordered tasted old and the amount did not represent what the picture online showed, the beans looked and tasted watered down. The sweet tea I ordered tasted old as well, they went as far as putting several lemon wedges in it to try and cover up the taste. The only good thing I have to say is that the server who came out to help me was very courteous and helpful before and after I wanted to add the sweet teas to my order. Overall service was great, quality of food... well you read the first line.P.S. the person who recieved the egg shell omelette stated that this place should have closed when the Covid restrictions happened. I'm inclined to agree.

Review №17

Angela gave us Great service and had an awesome attitude. Service was excellent and she was attentive to our needs. Five stars!

Review №18

This was my first time at Pericos and I will most definitely be coming back. The food was very good but what put it over the top was my server Ulises. It is my 3rd year anniversary and I received some of the best service on my special day. Definitely recommend eating here, definitely ask to be seated by Ulises if you are looking for service with a side of kindness.

Review №19

Great and friendly service! Trinity was a great waitress and very on top of it. The margaritas are really good and I'd recommend this restaurant!

Review №20

Their food was so good. We had the enchiladas and the flautas. Don't miss out here if you're craving some good Mexican food!Manny was our waiter while we were here and he take really good care of us!

Review №21

I'll start off by saying that I hate to go into a restaurant within 30 mins of closing. I have worked retail before and I understand starting closing procedures around that time. We arrived about 10 til 8 and we're seated. We ordered and the waiter kept coming back to the table to tell us that the kitchen had run out of charo beans and only had American cheese. We asked for more french fries for my son and more tortillas and were told that the kitchen had already closed. I wish the hostess had reminded us that they were getting ready to close because we felt rushed and it ruined the value of the meal. The $100 I spent there was a waste. I've had a better experience at a fast food restaurant. I used to be a regular but have have seen this location quickly going down. Never again.

Review №22

Great food and even better service! Trinity was amazing and made the experience all worth while! Definitely will be a returning customer!

Review №23

70 dollars worth of food and not 1 hot sauce for anything. No napkins or flatware which I could have lived with but I was specific about not getting hot sauce on last order and was reassured that it was going to be in my order. I almost think it was intentional. It is what it is but I won't order here any more which is unfortunate.

Review №24

Typical wannabe Mexican food. I'd rate it a zero if I could. I wonder if they share recipes with Mama Margie's and Palapas because they all lack flavor. If you're here for the booze, then I'm sure your palette doesn't judge, however, for my fellow foodies this place leaves a lot to offer. I got the chicken fajita nachos, and it was nothing short of flavorless chicken and American melted cheese. My 5 year old makes better nachos than that! The guac is legit just mashed avocados lacking any seasoning at all..AT ALL! I wouldn't be surprised if the refríed beans are from a can... *sigh* NEVER GOING BACK!

Review №25

Abel Villareal the manager at this restaurant was amazing very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend this place 10 times more Because of him!

Review №26

Always pretty consistent. Service is good and food is decent. Our go to breakfast spot most Sunday mornings.

Review №27

My girlfriend and I had an amazing experience Here. The food was wonderful, the service was fast, and we had a perfect way to end our anniversary. Thanks to Our waiter Ulises, we were able to get very fast service with quality food! We need more waiters like him in all restaurant chains!

Review №28

Good empanadas and enchiladas! Our server was great as well.

Review №29

Trinity was such a cute little waitress, so sweet and has amazing customer service! i love the panchos combo! give this girl a raise

Review №30

Ive never been to a Mexican restaurant that didnt offer complimentary chips and salsa with your meal. Street tacos and empanadas were lacking flavor. Tasted like ground beef with no spices.

Review №31

No problem with the employee, however, I ordered the cheese enchiladas plate with the little portion of rice and beans which was on special for nine bucks. This was to go and I asked for some pico de gallo and raw onions to take with me and they wanted to upcharge me and didn't even give me any plastic ware. I think it was not worth the price at all for that. Shouldn't have been any more than four dollars even with today's prices. Wanna upcharge for a little portion of pico and onion and not even give any plastic ware? To me that's pitiful

Review №32

My 10 yr old son fought cancer for 7 years before he succumb. Because of treatment he rarely ate but when he asked for food he asked for Pericos salsa! Thank you for making him smile. Food is a gift of the heart. I personally love your menudo. Everytime I pass Pericos I think of my son's smiles.

Review №34

Tried this place for the first time. Ordered the pollo asado plate. Chicken was so fresh, tender, & flavorful! Was a little put off about having to pay for chips & salsa, but the 3 salsas were so delicious it was worth the small cost! The Pancho Margarita was so smooth & flavorful. Beautiful presentation too! The Tres Leches Cake was delicious as well. My server Andrew & a young lady (sorry, can't remember her name) were very attentive to my needs. Will definitely be back!

Review №35

Review №56

I was there today we spend a good amount, we wore in the patio just us .it was very nice day, It got hot and we move to a shade spot ..the manager came an told us that was a hazard place to be that we have to moved. They dont even have a umbrella on the tables..I think that's a place were a band plays. Earlier on we wore sitting on a broken chair. That was a hazard chair....the waitress was very nice. But the manager was stupid. I will never go to that place... thanks the way I dont want a apology..keep it

Review №57

Trinity was the best waitress i've had in awhile, i'll definitely be back!!

Review №58

I used to like the food, but this time it wasn't that great, also the music they play it's the main reason why we didn't enjoyed being there. They need to play better music, yesterday was not good. I asked my husband to leave only because the lousy music

Review №59

I ordered to pick up the food was Terrible and dry i call the Manager to explain that food was to dry , she told me that we had to return the food my mom Ordered Enchiladas she eat half the plate , I took 2 to 3 bits it so bad I told the Manager , she said return the food ill give fresh once will we went they did not replace my mom plate only my, I told the Manager this was bad business , never again to eat at this restaurant she didn't seem to care!

Review №60

Great quick food, and service! Always a great experience.

Review №61

We were greeted and seated promptly. Waiter within one minute. Drinks within 2 minutes. Our food arrived hot and plated beautifully within 5 minutes. Try the brisket on the weekends. It's cooked to perfection. The Rico's tacos app makes me feel like I'm in Mexico. We will definitely come back.

Review №62

Food tasted good and the staff seemed considerate and sincere.

Review №63

Good first visit... family loved the chip & queso with beef

Review №64

Big servings of whatever you order, has a great little bar area while waiting to be seated or will bring your me to you at the bar upon request, great outside patio area ideal for social distancing.

Review №65

Manny was great! Good food and reasonably priced!

Review №66

Def Medicore, first time thought it was just a bad day, 2nd time not any better expected more especially overall, food n drink wise, would not go back.

Review №67

Trinity was an awesome waitress, very nice and friendly. I will be coming back ONLY for trinity.

Review №68

The food is good but I won't be going back because they charge for chips. There's many other places just as good that don't charge for chips.

Review №69

My new standard for Mexican food. Had three enchiladas with three different sauces, which apparently is no longer on the menu, but still available by request. The three sauces were each flavorful, as were the side dishes. Service was pleasant and seemed to arrive right on time. Value was good- it didn't break the bank. We will be back, probably soon.

Review №70

Manny is an excellent server. He has been our server on most of our visits and he has never disappointed us.!!

Review №71

Not a whole lot of razzle dazzle on the (To-Go order) packaging. To be quite honest the packaging was very generic (Lacking any color) I eat with my eyes. The food was a different story! The tortillas were very soft, I'm assuming homemade. The flautas were full of flavor, very delicious. The enchiladas looked down right mouthwatering.I absolutely would go back again.I spent $24 and some change on 2 plates of food and 1 drink! If you're curious. Not the cheapest (Mexican food) but definitely tasty!

Review №72

Hey y'all. I got the chicken chipotle dinner. Bruv the sauce tasted like my schools macaroni and cheese! It was too much cheese and you couldn't even taste the chipotle. We were at table six. They charged for the chips and salsa even though they should be free. They came with beans which were the best thing we were served. They made me gassy though :/. Don't get me started on the kids meals. The portions were small. If you want to starve your kids order from the kids menu. Took lots of free fresh naps though because the restrooms were closed .

Review №73

This is a great restaurant!The service is fast and friendly.The food is of the highest quality.The building is very clean and modern.The general manager, Catherine, runs a tight ship and is extremely knowledgeable and professional.I will be recommending this restaurant to my friends and family.

Review №74

I feel bad for leaving 3 stars because everyone seems to love it here, but I would consider my experience okay. My enchilada plate was good but nothing out of the ordinary, the shrimp taco plate was on the skimpy side for the price, and the service was alright. My friends and I spent an unnecessary amount of time waiting for the check. On top of that the plates were taken away first while our cash and debit cards were ready on the table. Nevertheless it has a beautiful ambiance, the people are friendly, and seems like the perfect place for happy hour so maybe it was just an off day, so I will give it another shot.

Review №75

Very underwhelmed, we are on vacation and seemed like a good choice in the area. Server was nice but the kitchen sent out the food at different times . Food is mediocre with lots of beans and rice . Lots of sauce on main dishes to mask bland food. Typical texmex not authentic Mexican though. My dish was on the table 10 minutes before my sides..didnt make any sense.

Review №76

Great food, server's were awesome Andrew our server was great!! Real clean restrooms.Thanks Andrew, we will become regulars!!

Review №77

Today we stopped in just before the restaurant opened and our awesome waiter Manny welcomed us in early. Manny was an excellent waiter. His 17 years with the restaurant really shines and made our visit very pleasant. We love Pericos food and order To Go all the time. We will be dining in more! See you soon Manny.

Review №78

Good was really good. Will be coming back for sure. Table side guacamole was amazing. And the Rico's tacos w/homemade corn tortillas were some of the best street tacos I've ever had. And good Margarita, can't beat that. Armando was very friendly and even though he seemed busy, he still was attentive and he hustled it.

Review №79

Manny is absolutely wonderful and attentive. My grandma loves coming here because the food is very authentic and had a small issue with a previous visit. Manny made sure everything was great this time around and was very attentive to our table. He is one of the reasons we will continue returning!

Review №80

This is my second meal here. I had the beef carnitas dinner and it was excellent. The spice was at a perfect level for me. It complimented the food without taking over the flavor. Like my last visit, the staff was wonderful and food preparation did not take long at all. In terms of quality, Pericos is establishing consistency with me and is quickly becoming one of my favorite restaurants.

Review №81

A bit pricy but good food. With going to

Review №82

Beautiful clean restaurant. Friendly staff, fast service, and great food.

Review №83

Review №84

Go for happy hour prices on margaritas and appetizers!

Review №85

Pericos rocks. Joey G is back. Food was amazing! See you tomorrow Pericos.

Review №86

Great food..The service is great!

Review №87

Pericos is a good place for a quick bite to eat or to spend time with the family for the ambiance. One thing we always get is the queso flameado. The dishes we get are filling and we have never had a complaint for what we've ordered. The wait staff is always friendly and provide prompt service for each visit we've had to the restaurant.

Review №88

Rene is the bartender and he is so nice and attentive

Review №89

Mediocre. But very strong margaritas and they're only $3 during happy hour.

Review №90

Great food and fast service and friendly staff..

Review №91

Nothing that sets this place apart from other good Mexican restaurants in the area. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't exceptional.

Review №92

Went here with the wife on a Friday night; busy but no wait. Live singer, but not too loud, and performed a varied selection of music. Food was great and priced reasonably. Service was good. Will definitely go back.

Review №93

Omg I had the most amazing time there combination fajitas were delicious the service was awesome surprise me with a very very happy birthday song that my wife requested the desert that they gave me was delicious and every time we're in town in San Antonio we tend to pay a visit there at least twice to clean times a month our readers name was Alex very very friendly enjoyed our service from Manny

Review №94

Hello First Time & L️VED It

Review №95

Another great meal at Pericos. Quickly seated. Great and reasonable prices. Clean setting. Excellent and friendly service. Andrew was personable..and friendly. I would almost consider adopting him! Will definitely go back again! Ask for Andrew!

Review №96

Stopped in for a fathers day late lunch... Had the parilla with a friend. Food was excellent as well as the margaritas!!

Review №97

Ok mex restaurant but nothing super standout about it. Waitstaff was very attentive but this place CHARGES FOR CHIPS N SALAS... WHAT!?!?

Review №98

Oh my gosh, the atmosphere is good, very friendly service and the Fajita Plate was delicious. Tender fajitas, rice & charro beans, guacamole with a salad and the delicious tasting flour tortillas. You guys need to go to this place and enjoy. Don't forget a smooth tasting drink.

Review №99

Every once in a while I will go to Pericos. The atmosphere is calm and service is always great. I always ask for Antonio Roque's section. He always gives the best attention and service. The Taco ricos are the best or the barbacoa tacos. The drinks are great too!

Review №100

Everything was very fresh and pretty delicious. Especially the queso with guacamole and beef in it, and their warm salsa. I usually don't like warm salsas, but their's is super awesome. Our server Andrew was pretty awesome as well, kept up with stuff even being busy. Definitely pretty great for the prices. If you're looking for a solid place for mexican food, this is definitely somewhere to check out.
