Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 April 2012

We have been eating here for 40 years, and it has been in business for at least 10 more years that that. The specialty is the "puffy-tacos" and the food is always excellent. We visit here EACH time that we visit San Antonio. It is family owned and the food is true San Antonio style, unlike many other Mexican food restaurants.

Reviewed 12 January 2012

We've eaten at many great restaurants in San Antonio but always had to travel quite a distance to get to them. El Tipico is close to where we live and it is a great place to get your Mexican food fix at a sit down atmosphere with wait staff. We were greeted by friendly folks and were seated immediately. One odd thing was that the menu was under glass on the table. That made it sort of hard to read. We ordered, was served in a reasonable amount of time and the food was very good. If you are in this neighborhood and don't want fast food, go to El Tipico!
