Dining Guide

Chile, Tomate & Cebolla

Daily specials set high standards. Consider, for instance, the extensive taco menu, with both breakfast and lunch offerings, the latter choices ranging from lengua (tongue) to asada (beef). With its name signaling some of Mexican cuisine’s key ingredients—chiles, tomatoes, and onions—this is a great little family-owned place, no frills supplied or needed. If you drop by in the morning, you can get what San Antonians consider a real breakfast: freshly made flour or corn tortillas, fiery salsas, and blanquitos (eggs) to order. Should you return for lunch, you’ll find specials like fideo (here spaghetti-size noodles) with pollo and creamy poblano-cilantro shrimp enchiladas. The tortilla soup is to die for, by the way. The simple space has a loyal neighborhood clientele, guaranteeing the occasional politico drop-in. The servers are infallibly friendly but sometimes pressed to keep up.
