A little bit of history
Welcome to Lisa’s Mexican Restaurant, a San Antonio tradition since 1981.
Lisa’s is owned and operated by Alicia. Lisa’s mission is to enrich the lives of our guest by providing superior quality food and beverages, providing legendary customer service and treat our guest and employees like family.
Lisa’s original location on West Commerce and 24th Street was founded by San Antonio restaurateur Lisa Wong. Alicia joined Ms. Wong to make Lisa’s Mexican Restaurant not only a favorite neighborhood favorite but a San Antonio tradition.
Alicia’s remarkable devotion and determination earned her the position of general manager which allowed her to fully earn ownership of Lisa’s.
Lisa’s was known as a breakfast and lunch favorite in the West side of San Antonio for many years. Families and friends knew it as “Lisa’s on Commerce.” The small, low-key atmosphere catered mainly to local families. It was Alicia’s charisma and innovation that allowed Lisa’s to grow into the full service restaurant and bar it is today.
Lisa’s opened its doors at this present expanded location on Bandera Road corner with Woodlawn on August 2017. Thank you to our loyal and committed restaurant family and you, our patrons, Lisa’s has grown to be the favorite dining establishment it is today.
