Good Tastes Abound in San Antonio
If you’ve traveled around the country, you already know that San Antonio has the best Mexican food. Folks travel from all over the world to try our South of the border specialties.
Every time we return on a late night flight from a road trip, it’s the first thing we crave. Whether it’s tacos from Las Palapas or fajitas from Taco Cabana—we gotta get our Mexican food fix. Beyond the drive-thrus, there are some other stars in the Alamo City.
Some of the gems in San Antonio include a few of our city’s oldest family run businesses. For die-hard Tex Mex fans, you’ve got to try the chicken tomatillo enchiladas at Nichas (Southside location or north side) and their chilaquilles…oh, so good! A bike ride on the missions trail just isn’t complete without a meal at Nichas.
Then, there’s Don Pedro, also a Southside institution for almost 45 years, with their incredible enchiladas but ask for their legendary chile rejellno and cabrito.
And then, the Godfather of all Mexican food restaurants in San Antonio – Mi Tierra. I’ve been eating there for more than 30 years but on a recent visit got a fascinating tour from one of the Cortez family members…owners of Mi Tierra for more than 70 years. The history that hangs on the walls alone is priceless…not to mention the many movers and shakers in the social and political world that have walked through those doors.
Other local gems – Rosarios in South Town and Aldaco’s STONE OAK out north of 1604. La Maestra, Blanca Aldaco’s delicious margaritas are the stuff legends are made of. And her Tres Leches cake is said to be the first and best ever sold in San Antonio.
