When I was a poor undergrad at Trinity University, my favorite Mexican restaurant was the nearby Teka Molino at 2408 N. St. Mary’s. It was just down the street from campus and then walking distance from my apartment my junior and senior years. The food was unmatched and a heaping plateful could be purchased for less than $3. Forty years... More

There's a smell that I remember from childhood after moving to San Antonio in the restaurants. The first time I walked into Teka Molina I had the same smell in my nose and oh what a wonderful smell it was. This isn't fancy, but if you are looking for authentic Mexican food in San Antonio, then you will want to... More

A friend took me here for lunch. Coming from Marlyland, where Mexican restaurants do not feature chalupas, I wanted to try them here. I was not disappointed. Had a chicken chalupa and was pleased to find out what it is all about.

Ordered a variety of breakfast tacos to share among the 4 of us. They were excellent. The tortillas are homemade and the bean and cheese and chorizo and egg are especially good. Our favorite however is the carne guisada and flour tortilla plate. A real treat.

I ordered the No.1 Mexican Plate (Enchilada,Tamales, Rice & Beans) for $7.45 and it was delicious. This is a busy location that seems to get a lot of carry out orders so it may seem to take a while for a dine in order but I think it is worth the wait. Although I did not have one, a margaritas...

This is a tried and true Mexican restaurant. We were there for lunch on a Saturday, and it was packed! It's a locals place, so we were surprised to be sitting next to a couple from North Carolina. I asked how they found this place, and it was apparently recommended. This was there second visit as they were leaving that... More
