I suspect all food in this little town may be good. The building is very cool, plenty of seating and looks to be a local hot spot.

My Mom and I drove to Ballinger from San Angelo just to have a nice drive in the country. I ordered the chicken fajitas, and my Mom ordered a senior plate with a cheese enchilada, beans, and rice. The chicken in my order was cut into little slivers, and the amount was laughable, I would guesstimate the amount of chicken... More

Alejandra's was the number one pick on Trip Advisor, and we weren't disappointed. The salsa needs a bit more heat, but the chips were light and fresh. We ordered beef fajitas for two. The meat was tender and a perfect serving for 2, we could barely finish it. The retried beans were creamy and cheesy, and the guacamole was chunky... More

A group of four of us had dinner at Alejandra's in Ballinger following a successful deer hunt. We found the service to be friendly and efficient and the food delicious. If I were to offer any criticism, I would have to say that the men's bathroom was dirty and not well services.

One taco was so crispy I picked it up and it broke in half. I was initially excited because I thought the shell was... More

My wife and I often stop here when we ride to Ballinger from San Angelo and back. About an hour ride in San Angelo and makes a great place to have breakfast on the weekends. The town is small but interesting. The restaurant itself is made from a converted General Store. The staff are all very friendly and the food... More
