The Enchilaco – it’s exactly what it sounds like, and your taste buds must experience it. Located in Floresville, Raul’s Enchilacos (101 Creekwood Dr.) is slightly southeast of San Antonio and well worth the drive.

Cheese enchiladas are delicious, and who doesn’t love tacos? An Enchilaco takes the best of both worlds, and the outcome is a taste that’s unique, but still familiar. Forget about using a fork – the soft taco surrounding the enchilada takes care of that. Biting through layers of tortillas and cheese, topped with sour cream and guacamole, makes patrons remember their first Enchilaco experience and leaves them wanting more.

In addition to the item the restaurant is named for, the menu consists of traditional tacos, nachos and beverages. The chicken fajita taco is made with quality meat and freshly grilled bell peppers and onions. Served with a side of guacamole, this taco tastes great on its own or topped with the delectable green dip.

The nachos come with a variety of options. From basic bean and cheese nachos to the “Tres Hombres” nachos with “Everything…And More” piled on, all nacho lovers will find something that pleases their palate.

Aside from the food, the best thing about Enchilacos is the price – $10 should be more than enough for tacos or nachos and a drink. Pairing any entrée with a Mexican Coke is definitely suggested. Everyone knows Coke tastes better out of a glass bottle anyway.

Enchilacos is open from 10:30 a.m. – 7:30 p.m. on weekdays, 10:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays and closed on Sundays. Visitors can’t miss the little blue building right off of highway 181. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and the service is friendly and efficient. An Enchilacos food truck is also in the works.
