Check out the menu for a full listing of tasty tacos as well as fajitas, queso flameado, steaks, and sandwiches.
- Based in Mexico, El Papalote brings a robust and fresh approach with its first U.S. outpost. With nary an enchilada, the long menu emphasizes the grilled meats and vegetables of northern Mexican cuisine. There are about a dozen beef tacos and a similar number of shrimp ones (we especially liked the Papalote-style, with bacon, green pepper, and mushrooms). – Texas Monthly
- We liked the spicy house chips and the salsas, focusing on chiles rather than tomatoes. – Karen Haram, _San Antonio Express-News
