Not BBQ, but dang good Tex Mex. Work brought me to San Antonio this week. I pm'ed Griffin, and he told me about Casa Rio... I think it's the oldest tex mex place in the area, if I'm not mistaken. Tried it out last night...




I decided on the Tamales...



The chicken and cheese chili was killer. Everyone in my group raved about the food. Their salsa and guacamole was excellent, too.

After dinner, we had a nice walk down the Riverwalk and did some sightseeing.



Just thought this sign was funny...;)


Having a great time so far. Saw the Alamo movie at the IMAX last night, and we are visiting the Alamo tonight. Maybe I'll get to see Pee Wee Herman's bicycle? ;)

Thanks to Griffin for the great information. I took some more pix of another restaurant called Acenar that I'll post when I get back home. They had some great Tex Mex as well. Hope to even eat something else tasty and unhealthy after visiting the Alamo tonight. :)

Been to Casa Rio a couple times and food is great! Like the mariachi singers that drift around and in & out of the various places. For a couple $'s most will try to play just about anything that you request, even if they don't know it and it's not traditional.
