A word from MiJo's Tex-Mex & Cantina
MiJo’s tex-mex & cantina is owned and operated by Claudia Caballero and is derived from Panchito’s Mexican Restaurant and Pericos Mexican Cuisine. Panchito’s is owned and operated by Roy and Evelyn Reyes. Pericos Mexican Cuisine is owned and operated by Russell Reyes. For the past 30 years the Reyes family has provided its guests in San Antonio true authentic Mexican food, famous homemade flour and corn tortillas and outstanding service. Claudia is bringing the same great recipes, with an Austin twist!


MiJo’s tex-mex & cantina is named after two very special children, Mia Caballero and Jordan Russell. Mia and Jordan are my niece and nephew. The restaurant is specifically named after both children, Mi for Mia and Jo for Jordan. You will see them often eating in the restaurant. Their pictures are on almost every table in the house.

    Food was fantastic! Wait staff was friendly. It took a bit to get our food - but we had a large group. That was the only complaint I'd have. The waitress very attentive - our chips and salsa never went empty! Food is more true Mexican - delicious!

    The food was authentic and very good. I have NO idea why they don't advertise that one of their cheese appetizers comes on fire. We ordered it and the tables around us were amazed and all ordered it as well- seems like they could use some help marketing. We were there the same time as a large party and after waiting close to 30 minutes for drinks our waitress explained that they were out of glasses. I'm pretty sure they took our used glasses, washed them, and brought them back out with refills. We would have asked for something to be discounted because service was SO slow, but they forgot to charge us for our food, so I guess it's a wash.

    I saw that the restaurant was listed on OT and booked a reservation for 8. I got a confirmation number and when a member of our party arrived early that evening mentioning the reservation, there was no record of it. Fortunately, they were not too crowded and were able to accommodate us with a table. Does OT need to contact them about this or are they not really participating in OT. Would be helpful to know for future reference.

    The food was bad; no other way to say it. Our waitress was great, friendly, knowledgeable, joyful, etc. I hope she finds a job at a place with better food. Example: My enchiladas "chipotle" didn't have "chipotle" sauce on top of them; it has melted cheese that looked like velveta (in 30 seconds it was rubbery and hard).

    Had a business luncheon and the service was very attentive, but not overly intrusive like some places. Food was very good - Flour tortillas were excellent! Will be back

    I just returned to Texas after several years and this place reminded me why no other state can do TexMex like Texas.
