First Review by thornburg

lacks taste but choices - Edit

Tacos had tons of veggies but no flavor beans or anything. Broccoli and mushrooms in a tortilla. Vegan tamales were off. The frozen dinner ones are better. The chalupas are actually just tostadas. Waitress said we just “call them chalupas”. People were friendly and has shredded chicken for Omni friends but there better places out there for sure.

Pros: friendly service , vegan cheese options

Cons: bland flavor , misleading menu

SO GOOD - Edit

This place was amazing! There were tons of vegan options and even more vegetarian options. The owner was working in the kitchen and plenty of regulars stopped by to say hello during the meal. She clearly connected with the people that frequented.

My parents came to visit me while in San Antonio for work and my dad suggested the spot. We'd never been before so we tried a little of everything. My cousin and dad aren't vegan and there were options for them My mom and I split two dishes that were served with salad and chips and salsa. The beans were all vegan! They even had Daiya cheese to top the dishes. I'd highly recommend the tamales.

I'm excited to go back and try the tofu filling on my next trip to San Antonio.

Pros: Options! , Friendly and informed staff, Super yummy!

Cons: Chips and Salsa weren't free, Chips weren't stellar

Out of towners probably wouldn't go back - Edit

"Non-refried" beans were good (tasted refried). The guac had a good taste but it almost seemed like it was squeezed out of a bag.
The theme and decor was pleasing and authentic.
The salsa was NOT good.
Though I can appreciate a restaurants attempt to make a dish healthier, I feel as though they could have been a little more creative in terms of their use of spicing/flavoring...
Tofu was bland.
Would give a 2.5 out of 5

Cons: Salsa

Healthiest Mexican in Town! - Edit

When I choose Mexican, this is my "go to" choice for both flavor and quality! Fun and colorful, the only negative is that ey do not accept credit cards. Be sure to have cash on you!

A favorite local place for years! - Edit

This place is the best Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, and for vegetarians this is a true world class restaurant! Adelante serves authentic Mexican food with variety to please almost everyone. The entrée choices range from less spice, salt and fat (some would say bland, I would say simple and basic) to the most incredible Poblano pepper enchilada you'll ever have. Their sweet potato fries ordered with queso dip make for a wonderful appetizer. The Adelante puffy tacos are fantastic; they are fried in canola oil so they are light and relatively healthy. Things I wish Adelante would change: I wish the guacamole was more consistent, some days it is great and other days it is just ok. Also their basic salsa served with the chips is a roasted pico de gallo salsa, so you have to order a side of fresh pico de gallo if you don't like roasted salsas.

Pros: Excellent food, Healthy choices, Very friendly staff

Cons: No outdoor seating

Adelante- Good Veg Mexican Food - Edit

Adelante is great for going out for good vegetarian Mexican food. Their tamales, beans, veggie quesidillas, are all really great. The whole wheat tortillas are not vegan though. Just make sure to check with the staff if you are vegan because there are some seemingly vegan things that aren't!

Pros: Fresh, Healthy, Delicious

Cons: Non Vegan Tortillas ;(

Impressive choices - Edit

I went with a group that had 3 omnivores and 4 vegetarians. Everyone found lots of choices to their liking. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of vegetarian tamales available. The black beans and brown rice were flavorful and cooked to perfection. The whole wheat tortillas were thick yet flexible. Why didn't this place exist when I *lived* in San Antonio?!

Pros: variety of choices, great flavor, casual setting

Cons: a little loud
