Best Texmex Food
in San Antonio

“Tex-Mex” first entered the English language in the late 1800s as a nickname for the Texas-Mexican Railway, but today the name conjures up thoughts of fajitas and chili con carne. Adapted from traditional Spanish and Mexican recipes with the addition of American ingredients, Tex-Mex cuisine often features melted cheese, beef, beans and chili.
