There's certainly no shortage of Mexican fare to be found in San Antonio. In fact, it could be said that the city is overrun by it, particularly taco trucks and Jaliscos, which seem to sit on every corner of the city. However, if you're looking for the best of the best (and of course you are!), then read on to track down this city's finest!
Cappy Lawton, owner of La Fonda on Main, is well known for his superior cuisine, Mexican and otherwise. He's currently being lauded for the recent release of his Mexican cookbook, along with co-writer, Chris Waters Dunn. The title of the book is Enchiladas: Aztec to Tex-Mex. You can sample some of these amazing recipes first by visiting the restaurant.
For a completely avant garde Mexican cuisine experience, Mixtli's progressive Mexican cuisine should be at the top of your list. They manage to seamlessly incorporate exciting aesthetics and entertainment into their extraordinary dishes. They only serve one 12-top a night in a train boxcar, so reservations are required.
If fancy's not your thing, head on down to Southtown for some local Tex-Mex and authentic grub that will satisfy your cravings. For that hole-in-the-wall delight, try Tito's. Their Creamy Cilantro Chicken Enchiladas are hard to beat. Cascabel is another treat. They offer affordable, scratch-made cuisine from the Mexican interior. Expect black beans, not pinto, and corn instead of flour, but it's all delicious!
