We needed to get some food immediately & it was late Friday night on a holiday weekend.  So we stopped in here & asked if we could get some food at the bar area.  They said they could.  I came with my 2 teenage daughters, so we sat a table in the bar.  I had to go up to the bar the entire time to order any drinks & food.  I could tell that the 2 bartenders were really busy because they both seemed mad at each other & were running in each other.  They seemed more interested in getting drinks for the other walk up men then the mother with 2 daughters. I did get the guac, which was good, but there were really not enough chips.  I also order the ceviche & shrimp tacos - which were really good.  But the kitchen helpers did not bring them out & the bartender had to go back & get it from the kitchen.  He did offer to refill the chips, but noticed that other people that ordered food got their plates right away.  Just not impressed with the service.  Just a bad experience in that respect.  I wished the service would have been better & more responsive.  Also there were 2 bartenders & one of the bartenders did not regard me at all while I stood there.  Rude!
So Acenar is usually my go to for taking visitors since it's right on the river and the food is super good. Sadly this time, when my sister and parents came to visit from out of state Acenar was a huge disappointment. Over the few times my sister had visited, she fell in love with the salsa and now anytime we visit she insists to go just for the salsa. Somehow they RAN OUT of SALSA!!! How does that even happen at a mexican restaurant? Like if you know it takes several hours to prepare salsa, you should start making some when you are starting to run low and not when you are totally out. We ended up canceling our order and going to Torchys and I might have to reconsider my go to visitor restaurant....
If you're in downtown San Antonio and you're looking for good food for a good price and you need to get in and out, Acenar Mexican Restaurant is the place for you. I'll be back.
