welcome to TexMex - Edit

Hopped off the plane from California, opened Happy Cow and landed on LaBotanica. I got there for brunch on a Sunday and happily enjoyed the barbacoa jackfruit nachos and tacos as well as a vegan concha. The food was good and I was happy to find a vegan option here in big meat country

Good but small - Edit

The atmosphere is great and the staff is friendly. The food was good but the portions are small and it is a bit pricey. Everything on the menu is completely vegan so no worries there. It does get really busy at night so it does take a while to get your food only reason I’m giving it 3 stars.

Pros: Good food, good atmosphere, friendly staff

Cons: Long wait time in the evenings

Great vegan food in a delightfully quirky little establishment - Edit

I was visiting San Antonio on business in January 2018 and tried La Botanica with two nonvegan friends. I'm not sure that they were terribly impressed with what they got, although one of them said that the nachos were the best that he'd ever had. I had the chilaquiles verdes, bread pudding, and hibiscus tea and thoroughly enjoyed them. The chilaquiles were tasty, and the bread pudding was sweet and delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful, and I felt right at home.

Pros: Pleasantly quirky ambience, Delicious food, A rainbow flag in one window!

Great food & atmosphere - Edit

La Botanica has become one of my usual spots to grab lunch/dinner. I've had their nachos, Ms. Bellas, burrito, sweet potato filled empanadas, and mini potato tacos. I'm not a huge fan of their sugar bombs. They're too sweet for my taste. They have a lot more items on their menu than what is listed on their site. The food is always fresh and perfectly fried. The staff is very friendly. I love the casual laid-back atmosphere.

Will definitely be back! - Edit

Love the atmosphere and ambiance! Really liked that they have a full bar in addition to their specialty drinks. Only 1 bartender when we were there so it was quite a wait. It was during the week, but still- quite a wait. But the bartender was super friendly. Too bad they only had 2 Michelob Ultra, so we had to switch up the beer. We had the Ms. Bella's appetizer- super delicious! Then we had the Bella Fajita Taco Plate- very good! Then topped it off with the Sugarbombs for dessert- amazing!! Prices were great too! I wish I could give a half star so my rating would be 4 1/2 stars.

Do not recommend - Edit

I checked out La Botanica on a Saturday night... I ordered the oyster mushroom burrito and the fajita tacos. The descriptions looked amazing, but sadly the food was lacking in taste, quality, and portion size (for the $$ price). There were almost no mushrooms to be seen in the burrito, the rice and tortilla stale, and overall unflavorful...also, this burrito was the size of something off a fast-food dollar menu. The tacos were no better, there was barely any filling and whatever portabello was there was overcooked. Truthfully, I've never gotten food at a restaurant that looked this disappointing (do they even care in the kitchen???). The one saving grace of the night was the deep fried rice balls with strawberry sauce for $6 (These are the only reason that I'm giving 2 stars instead of 1). They were really flavorful. Sad and disappointed that this vegan option is not better.

Cons: Small portions, Expensive, Not tasty

good food - Edit

The food menu is very limited and even more so if you go on a Sunday. The drink menu far surpasses the food options which would make this a great place for an evening out. Seating is limited to the patio (hot with some fans) or an even hotter inside so plan on bringing a sweat rag. Other than that it's a great place to eat and not have to worry about animal products hiding in the dishes.

Pros: Large drink menu, Delicious food

Cons: Limited menu, Climate

Good Vegan Food! - Edit

The atmosphere is super dope and hella chill! Love the good vibes! Food is absolutely delicious! Super innovative and creative! The staff isn't the nicest all the time, kind of hit or miss. Also, the food is a bit pricey. The menu is kinda of small but it is worth trying!! Food is on point!

Pros: Great food, good atmosphere, dog friendly patio

Cons: pricey, not a lot of parking

DELICIOUS!!!! - Edit

The food was some of the most creative and flavorful Vegan food I've ever tasted! The specialty drinks were also amazing! Mi carino was, hands down, the best designer drink I've ever had! With the live music and animal friendly patio, it's the only place I want to go on the weekends!

Pros: Tasty food, Pet friendly, Music

Cons: Portions are small, Small menu
