Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant
When we told friends we were writing a guide to local tacos, we were warned repeatedly not to give Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant even more attention—longtime fans don’t want to deal with the resulting lines. But considering that the Garcia family has been making barbecue and Tex-Mex (and combinations of the two) in San Antonio for the past 53 years, we’re confident that the present generation, led by brothers Andrew and John Garcia, can handle yet another wave of taco enthusiasts. Best of the options: succulent fatty (that’s a good word in barbecue parlance) brisket on a thick flour tortilla.
