I just love a good Mexican food. I can’t tell you how many times I have gone to a Mexican restaurant and been disappointed in the food. I tend to like the food I make at home. I make great guacamole and amazing tacos. I have a recipe for chicken tacos that I just love as well. So today I looked at the city of San Antonio, Texas and found three Mexican restaurants that caught my eye that I will have to visit when I get to San Antonio.
Wapo Taco is located on the northwest corner of 410 and Babcock. They are proud to say they are not a Tex-Mex kind of food. Their goal is to provide authentic, affordable, delicious Mexican food. They offer non-traditional and traditional plates that will allow everybody in your party to find the food they want.

This inspired Lisa to go out on her own and be an entrepreneur. When Rosario’s was in bankruptcy court in 1992, Lisa saw the opportunity to purchase it and reestablish it in the Southtown/King William area. Seven years later, she moved the restaurant to a larger location with ten thousand square feet. That was triple the size of the original restaurant.
Lisa’s generosity knows no bounds. She is active in her community donating then thousand dollars to The Children’s Shelter and twenty-five thousand for Katrina relief. Her awards and recognitions are too numerous to list in this article.
Today it is a place where the artists, politicians, musicians and the who’s who love to dine. No wonder Rosario’s has over twenty-five hundred rave reviews on the web.

San Antonio TX Hood Cleaning is proud to bring this article to you. They have trained, bonded and licensed professionals who do hood cleaning all over the San Antonio, Texas area.
Next time you are in a restaurant, ask the owner/manager when their last hood cleaning was done. They should be able to show you a certificate from their hood cleaning company that it is done quarterly.
