Best Enchiladas

1. The Original Blanco Café
1720 Blanco, (210) 732-6480

On a recent visit to Blanco Café's Midtown flagship (established by Alejandro F. San Miguel in 1974), the place was still abuzz long after the lunch rush had ended. Several tables were joined together for a large party finalizing wedding-day plans over plates of puffy tacos and what many consider the best enchiladas in town. Served in three no-nonsense varieties ($6.29 for classic cheese, $7.29 for chicken or beef), these tightly rolled treasures served with rice, beans, and homemade tortillas are the antithesis of pretentious upscale Mexican cuisine. The rest of the menu similarly delights with fast, fresh, Tex-Mex classics. All-day breakfast in this cheery booth-lined room (decorated with prints of the Avenida Guadalupe and Jesse Treviño's iconic raspa vendor) is the hangover cure of choice for many a local in the know. And don't leave without reading BC's collection of humorous signs such as "Lost Dog: 3 legs, blind in left eye, missing right ear, tail broken, recently castrated, answers to name of 'Lucky.'"
