A tiny little restaurant crammed in a strip mall on oober crowded and busy Medical Drive. Sometimes I (and the kiddos) need to pick up my husband from work. Since I’ve made a rule of never driving between the hours of 5 and 7, we needed a place close to his work to lay low while traffic died down. (I’m not a pleasant rush hour driver, it makes me insane.)
My husband, who won their hearts because he can speak Spanish, ordered the carne asada. By the way, Spanish is the preferred language here meaning you’ll probably be greated and spoke to in Spanish until you indicate otherwise. The first time I came I thought I was so cool because I responded in Spanish.
The minute we got past “hola” and “como estas”, I was fresh out of words and not feeling so cool anymore. Don’t worry, they speak English here too, just not right off the bat. It’s kind of fun that way. Anyway, back to the food. His steak was flavorful and tender and on a bed of cactus, which I love; soft, tangy and tart and goes really well with the grilled steak, beans and rice.
And like most places in San Antonio, they also have breakfast tacos so don’t let the time of day deter you. And because they’re near the medical center, they’re open super late for those of us who have second dinner around 12 😉210.615.3644)
