gross!! - Edit

I used to love this place and recommend it to everyone. Last time I went, there was a huge dead roach in our tortilla chips. Never going back.

usmarine_63 27 Mar 2018 - You're in south Texas, vegan. If you refuse to go to a place because out of the many times you've gone, you ONCE saw a cockroach, you must be a transient since you probably cannot go into your own home. You clearly acknowledge the food is delicious. One star? You should have taken a few moments to think before letting the entire world know how ignorant you are.

Mex without the Tex - Edit

Guajillo's was introduced to us by some of the most dedicated vegans in San Antonio! They raved about this place and we soon knew why.

Not many veggie dishes listed on the menu, however there's ONE dish my husband and I love so much that for awhile, we were there every Saturday, happily chowing it down for lunch.

Our favorite dish is Mole Verde con Calabaza / Green Mole with Zucchini! It comes with beans and rice... NO animal products or broth used in preparation of either one.

All seasoning in this restaurant is done with different peppers is what they've proudly told us. Peppers are the main ingredient for all flavors.

According to my vegan chef hubs, they have certainly made it a fine art! He describes the dishes he's tasted as rich, flavorful, well-balanced and unique. (He's pretty particular and tuned-in on foodie topics.)

Me, I just LOVE them, especially this Green Mole (made from roasted pumpkin seeds!) served over grilled zucchini.

The friendly owner/manager(?) has told us that they are very willing to make other dishes vegan if patrons simply ask. He, himself, is looking to eat more vegan.

Chips are fresh and super crisp and the salsa is spicy with lots of flavor, so very different from any other we've tasted.

It's a comfortable, down-to-earth kind of place. Good service and consistently tasty food. So affordable.

We actually share one serving of this green mole dish. When we order it to split, they bring it on separate plates with generous portions of beans and rice. Plenty for us to eat! We leave happy and soon crave it again, so we return for more!

Blah! - Edit

Okay, so this shouldn't be considered veg friendly there are only 2 things that are vegetarian and one of them is empty calories. So get the beans right, well they come out and are very watery unflavored and most certainly canned. You can serve canned beans but you have to flavor them come on. Also the tortillas are always stale and microwaved, the food here is awful it is a place that gets by, by marketing to out of towers there are much better veggie places and much better places to get Mexican food out, just drive down the southside or downtown on Broadway and you will find dozens good places. Drive downtown and go to Picante grill get some great food and be happy.

Cons: Stale tortillas, Watery canned unflavored beans, Very few if any veggie options

usmarine_63 27 Mar 2018 - Blah? Canned food? This guy/gal clearly has a cardboard tongue. You won't find more authentic Mexican food in the area. Yes, it is different from the Tex-Mex joints many are so used to in the south, but unless you've been deep into Mexico (as it's clear this bozo has not), your "review" is nothing more than a guess. By the way, this restaurant advertises as having "vegan options," and it does have options. The options are limited, but the statement is true. I've been going there for years, and I know first-hand (yes, I've seen batches being made) that all dishes are made in-house from scratch. As a side note, if the "tortillas are always stale," beans are "most certainly canned," and the food is merely "blah," as bozo above states, why has he/she repeated gone there?
