Kind of a Baja California vibe. I enjoy the Baja Fish Tacos (#3) and the steak nachos.

Chuy’smultiple locations
Born in Austin. Tex-Mex. One of my favorites places. My favorite dish is the grilled shrimp tacos à la carte with the creamy jalapeño dressing. I’m also a fan of their salsa fresca.

El Sabrosito Jalisco Restaurant118 N Weidner Rd, San Antonio, TX 78233
I’ve only been through the drive-thru here. The mixed parrillada plate has a lot of food! The meats taste good. I was not a fan of the nachos because of the cheese. The salsas are on the hot/spicy side.

A San Antonio Tex-Mex staple. Good spot to kick back and chill. Unlimited chips with a good salsa bar. I recommend the bean and cheese taco, the picadillo taco, the carne guisada taco, the queso appetizer, and the fresh lemonade. I also like to order a soda with half Dr. Pepper and half Big Red.

The Original Panchito’s Mexican Restaurant4100 McCullough Ave, San Antonio, TX 78212
Same owners as the other Panchito’s. However, this location has a completely different atmosphere. This restaurant has serviced tables and a bar. I like ordering the Poco de Mexico appetizer as a meal. I am also a fan of the shrimp nachos.

A San Antonio sensation. Known for their grilled chicken meals. I’m a fan of their salsa verde.
