San Antonio, Texas: Taco la Gardenia; restaurant review


Taco la Gardenia  1805 N Pine St., Government Hill, (210) 229-9702. 

Prices here are rock bottom, and most everything is very good.  Favorites are the enchiladas verde, the sope, and the locally popular “puffy tacos.”  I hear the chilaquiles is also a don’t miss.  However, the day I chose to dine here for the first time, our order took FOREVER.  One blind customer complained loudly to the server when his meal finally arrived, “What did you do?  Go home and cook it from scratch?”  Our wait had approached an hour, but I remained mostly content noshing on the delicious salsa and chips.  Our waitress finally explained to us that a cook had quit and one of the servers had been pulled in to help in the kitchen.  I will return because I adored my sope.  Next time I’ll order two.

In a little nook off the main dining room, a bakery purveys pan dulce items.
