Ácenar is not Mi Tierra with a snazzier paint job. With the exception of some slick color photos of nibbled galletas, paletas, and dulces - and maybe the noise level - there's not much at all in the highly charged interior that suggests Tex-Mex, classic or contemporary. In fact, the clever use of a molcajete grid on the patio takes us back to a much earlier era.;;The same might be said for the menu: It's divided into San Antonio Tex-Mex Favorites and Ácenar Specialties, and it's not clear at first glance whether the SA favorites are alleged to be updated, or if all the tweaking took place in the specialties section. An appetizer such as the house-smoked salmon nachos with discrete black beans and dill crema looks much like the classic cosa, but the taste is altogether otra. And it works, despite the rarity of both dill and smoked salmon in any Mexican kitchen, traditional or Tex. - Ron Bechtol
Aldaco's Stone Oak outpost remains true to its downtown roots with fresh, flavorful Mex and signature treats, including the avocado margarita and pastel tres leches. -- Ron Bechtol (02/09)
Beautiful garden setting with peacocks and Asain phesants roaming the grounds. Diverse menu apealing to all tastes with an array of desserts and specialty drinks.

; Barriba’s colorfully chaotic space seems designed to appeal primarily to the tourist trade. Menu items and drinks also stretch local norms, both in price and in sometimes overwrought composition. Service and setting hold up their end, but we’ll wait for the place to mature a little before returning.
