Horrible service, poor management. We went to Pericos for my birthday lunch with family and friends. We sat outside, and the rest. was not very busy (5-6 tables occup.) Our server was very quite and misunderstood everything we ordered. We only saw him once between the time we ordered and the time we rec'd our food. When our food arrived ( 50 min. later!!!), two orders were wrong, two were cold and my meal was missing! We got ahold of our server to make him aware of the mistakes and he looked dazed. So he went back and put in my meal order. 25 minutes later my meal still wasn't out. At this point my guests were done and I was aggrivated. The manager came over and made excuses but still didn't get my food out. We left very upset, without cutting the cake and the manager took 25% off out meal. Needless to say, we had a horrible time. I have gone back once since, and the service had not improved.
Bad customer service - food good if you get it..
We live near this resturant and saw it go up...been in it about 5 times over the past 5 years now.
If you can stand bad service (that is if you actually get someone to take your order), the food it actually good.
Over the years the service has been getting worse. THis past Dec 2007, we felt like trying it one more time - it had been a year since our last bad service experience. We had hoped that it would improve. Well after being seated fairly quickly. We waited for nearly 20-minutes!!!! before we told them we were leaving for NO ONE came by to get our drink order. This was when the place was at 40% capacity and there were wait staff seating or standing and chatting up with other customers.
TERRIABLE SERVICE!!!! We have had it and will no longer go here any more.
if you actually get food - it should be good.
Great on any day or night of the week!. The kinda establishment where you can take clients for lunch, have a drink in the evening, listen to live music on the weekends and have a nice Sunday lunch with the Family. Fair prices, great drinks and the service is excellent.
AWFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE.
My husband and myself took 4 friends from out of town to this restuarant, only to have our evening RUINED by HORRIBLE customer service on the part of the MANAGER!!!! It was so BAD that we where all very ANGRY through out our meal and afterwards! Had we not waited an hour to eat WE WOULD HAVE LEFT THE RESTAURANT WITHOUT EATING!
It was probably one of my WORST experiences at a restaurant ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
in a word......."tasty". Get here early, parking is at a premium. Fantastic staff, great drinks (try a parrot tail on Tuesdays), incredible food. The salsa brought to the table with in seconds of sitting down is so fresh and flavorful. Try the charro beans as opposed to refried for a great experience. They have great lunch specials during the week and breakfast on weekends. You can call and place an order to go. Can you tell this is my favorite place to eat at?
Great Local Restaurant. If you prefer local restaurants over big chains and are in the mood for Mexican food Perico's is definitely the place to go. The chilli relleno was delicious. I also recommend a mango margarita. We went on a Friday night and the place was packed so get there early. This is a great family place or place to entertain out of town guests.
A must visit for out of towners. If you are tired of the tourist trap that is the Riverwalk, head out of downtown and make your way to Perico's. Very reasonable priced, this tucked away gem is a local's place but should be the place tourist come for the real Tex Mex experience. The margaritas are huge and strong, the salsa is fresh and the best I've had in San Antonio, the menu has many outstanding meals most under $9. Live music on weekends and special occasions, a must visit place if you live in San Antonio and a place to go for those watching their pocketbooks while in SA.
Great service. While not taking reservations, the management worked very hard to accommodate my group of 14 and mangaged to seat us all together. The waiter was very attentive and provided excellent service. I was extremely pleased with the courtesy shown my group and the very pleasurable dining experience we shared. Great job!
Traditional Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes, based on family recipes, are served in a colorful dining room and on a tree-shaded veranda..
The restaurant can host parties of up to 50 outside, offers daily specials, including various enchiladas. The menu features dishes like sombrero de fajita--beef or chicken cooked with onion and bell peppers, topped with Monterey jack cheese and covered with homemade tortillas. Steak a la Mexicana is composed of spicy thin strips of beef topped with the house picante sauce. Many entrees, including children's plates, come with rice and beans. Bar drinks feature margaritas.
