If you've got 70 cents jingling in your pocket, this taquer?a has breakfast for you.. The Scene More than just a tiny hideaway, this classic taco house is where Mexican nationals stop for a bite of home when they tire of the Tex-Mex version. The menu is in English and Spanish, but don't expect the staff--usually the owner's family--to respond if you talk like an Anglo. Point to what you want and be thrilled when you get it. With the out-of-the-way location, near Interstate 10 on Hildebrand Avenue, there's hardly ever a wait. But get there early, because in true taquería fashion, the place closes after lunch.
The Food Freshly cut avocados, handmade pico de gallo and tacos stuffed with chorizo and egg or thinly sliced, aromatic lengua (beef tongue) make the textures and flavors as south-of-the-border as San Antonio gets. In addition to the tacos, a variety of combination plates are available.
