Fajtas- San Antonio- out of the following 4 choices which is the best?

I'll be in San Antonio next month

I know some of these spots are touristy but if I were to pick out of the following 4- where can I find the best?


1- La Fonda on Main

2- Mi Tierra Cafe & Bakery

3- La Margarita Restaurant & Oyster Bar

'4- Rosario's Mexican Cafe Y Cantina

  1. I've had them from 3 of the 4. Mi Tierra is not one that I would choose. They do much better with the other things.
    I'd list La Margarita, La Fonda a close second, and Rosario's (not tried them there)
    Even though La Margarita and Mi Tierra are from the same family, they are completely different.

      Thanks for your input.

      Has anyone been to Rosario's for Fajitas? The reason why I brought this place up is because it was voted best fajitas by one of the local tv networks

    2. One more restaurant that captivated my attention (that makes 5)

      Does anyone have any thoughts regarding the fajitas at Piedras Negras de Noche?

        I would go with either Rosario's or Piedras Negras. I've never had fajitas at Rosarios and I have never been to Piedras Negras but here is my rational:

        Everything I've had at Rosarios has been good and almost every place in town makes good fajitas so I imagine Rosarios are pretty good.

        The user Lepricano on Urban Spoon likes Rosarios and Piedras Negras and does not like Mi Tierra or La Margarita.

        I have no personal affiliation with Lepricano but I always take his reviews very seriously for he is *the man* when it comes to the San Antonio Mexican food scene. Especially when it comes to the inner city, out of the way type places that tourists would never find . . but I basically trust his opinion on all of it.

        Hope you get more specific info before your trip!

          Thanks San Antonio Sam

          From what I see on the web it seems that Piedras Negas attracts locals of Mexican Descent- this might be exactly what I'm looking for.
