Nick's Taste of Texas
About Nick's Taste of Texas: this has been one of our favorite restaurants for over twenty years. If you're going there expecting to eat Mexican food, your're going to be disappointed. The food is Tex-Mex from San Antonio, Texas. Their specialties are Guisado, Barbacoa, Texas Chili, BBQ, fajitas, ribs, hard shell tacos and enchiladas. You can get a po' boy sandwich and menudo (they don't serve patas). You won't find better tortillas anywhere unless you can make your own.
Eating at Nick's, at times, is like eating at a big party or family reunion partly because of the way the tables are set up. The food is not gourmet food, it's just good, simply made food, that could have come out of a home kitchen. Sometimes, on some items they can be inconsistent. On any given day, the breakfast potatoes can be either sliced and fried or home fries, and the chilaquiles are served at least three different ways, depending, I suppose, on who's cooking that day. it's a gamble if you'll be served your favorite way.
Still, even with that Nick's Taste of Texas is a great place to take the family for breakfast. Lot's of seating so you can sit and drink your coffee and talk until you feel like leaving. No one is rushing you out the door.
