Wow! I just had lunch at La Tuna and it was great! I had the Chicken Sandwich. There was 4 in our party and we all enjoyed our selections very much. The food was hot, fresh and full of flavor. Looking at the other diners' dishes, I'd have to say everything looked great. The portions were generous. The service was wonderful as well. We had a great lunch and will definitely be back to try out some other dishes. It does get a little crowded at lunchtime, but we got there just before the crowd came in. There is not too much seating indoors, but there are plenty of tables outside in the shade of the pecan trees. Even at a little less than 100 degrees, people outside seemed to enjoy themselves. The shade of the trees really helped making it tolerable.
I find myself being being an extremly picky person when it comes to bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. I have experienced some of the best and worst places not only in SA but in all around the US. Ivory has made it to the top of my list, especially for San Antonio. I went on a Saturday night and the whole experience was FABULOUS. The DJ played a good variety of music, the drinks were inexpensive because they had several specials, and the service was great. I was impressed with how clean everything was since it was all white.
