Open for business in San Antonio since 1932, this family-friendly restaurant in a hacienda-like building is fun and casual, but still upscale. The beautiful dining room opens onto an inviting outdoor patio. The traditional Mexican fare includes such as steak Tampiquena ("Tampico-style": grilled tenderloin strips with a green enchilada and charro beans ) and a variety of enchiladas. Several Tex-Mex specialties also populate a robust menu. Flan and tres leches
cake ("three milks" cake—a butter cake soaked in sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and cream) are made daily, and the vibrant bar delivers tasty margaritas.
