Happened upon Tito’s Restaurant in San Antonio via my normal path of Tex Mex discovery: ride around aimlessly for awhile, stop at a place that looks interesting, stare at what other diners are eating, glean their facial expressions for pleasure or disgust-order accordingly. The roast chicken enchiladas in a creamy jalapeno sauce are delicious. The chicken is so perfectly cooked I actually stick my head in the kitchen to see if there is a sous vide machine on the premises.

The cream sauce holds true heat, no veining and deseeding going on here.

The puffy tacos are a disappointment. Not nearly enough carne molida.

I’m dying for an agua fresca but Tito’s does not offer this treat.

The room is lovely with 20 foot ceilings, lots of local art and an expansive feeling that’s quite welcoming.

Service is fine, the server is efficient, little else needs to be noted.

Tito’s is not going to threaten my San Antonio Tex Mex mainstays but the food is certainly worthy of a visit.

They’ve won all sorts of “Best of San Antonio” awards but I suspect that like our own local “best of” awards, it has more to do with how much advertising you’re willing to purchase in the awarders newspaper more than anything else.
