Just over 150 miles (241.4 kilometers) from Mexico, San Antonio boasts some of the best – and most authentic – Mexican cuisine you will find in the state of Texas. It’s hard to go wrong, but here is a select list of top spots to try in town.
You know it’s good when a restaurant doesn’t even need to have a website – this authentic spot‘s traditional fare speaks for itself. The house-made tortillas are fluffy bases for a variety of savory toppings, but most popular are the breakfast items served up starting at 5 a.m., including huevos rancheros with barbacoa and chilaquiles verdes.
There are two locations of Rosario’s Cafe Y Cantina to choose from – one on the north and one on the south side of town – both trendy and large enough that you likely won’t have to wait. The fajitas and seafood offerings are notably fresh, and other menu standouts include the enchiladas verdes, La Piña margarita, and smoky, roasted salsa.
