Savor a Little Taste of Mexico in the City of San Antonio

Located as it is so close to the Mexican border, San Antonio is perhaps THE best place in Texas to find authentic Mexican cuisine, not to mention their divine fusion of Tex-Mex. 

Your first stop should be at La Gloria, where you can dine like the locals do. It's no surprise this is where San Antonians like to bring their friends and family to experience the good life. Owned by one of the Alamo City's celebrity chefs, La Gloria is almost as good as a trip to Mexico. Enjoy traditional street food and drinks on their beautiful outdoor patio. 

Casbel is also an excellent place to find some authentic Mexican eats. This quaint restaurant, tucked away in Southtown, makes some of the best mole you'll ever eat!

For a more upscale experience, La Fonda is a popular go-to for their stunning patio, yummy margaritas, and thoughtful specials that don't leave you feeling like you just ate your way through Mexico.
