Ray’s Drive Inn, 822 SW 19th St, San Antonio, TX.

Ray’s is Home of the Original Puffy Taco. When traveling, I try to visit local eateries that features that area’s specialty. The puffy taco is one in San Antonio. Ray’s is a fun, quirky, welcoming landmark in the city since 1956. Don’t let the name fool you, go inside the restaurant to eat. They do have a drive thru, just don’t think it will be like Sonic when you pull up.

I ordered one beef and one fish puffy taco. Oh so good. That puffy shell is amazing! The beef filling was savory and a blast of flavor. The fish was good, but not the powerhouse I found in the beef. Excellent quality, great prices, super staff, and entertaining atmosphere. Ray’s was a special place and I can’t wait to return.

Their menu offers more than puffy tacos, but when in Rome…er, San Antone 😉

Hours: Tues – Thurs 11:00am – 11:00pm, Fri and Sat 11:00am -midnight, Sun 11:00am – 11:00pm. CLOSED MONDAYS.

Mad Girl Eats Taco Taco Cafe in San Antonio

Taco Taco Cafe, 145 East Hildebrand Ave, San Antonio, TX

Taco Taco Cafe in San Antonio, named Best Taco in America by Bon Appetit magazine. Their breakfast taco, bacon and egg, along with their lunch taco, El Norteno were named best. It was brunch time so decided to try both. The bacon and egg on homemade flour tortilla, I added guacamole. Phe–nominal. The beef El Norteno was a savory powerhouse, def needed salsa to round off and brighten the flavor. Definitely worth getting off of I-10 for. Glad I stopped!
