Some of our favorite places in the neighborhood and nearby.
Our favorite breakfast tacos, literally right outside the front door on the corner of Commerce and Smith! My favorite is potato and egg mixed with refried beans and cheese; my husband loves the bacon and egg. Dine in or bring them home and have breakfast poolside!

This great little Mexican bakery is about 1/2 mile from the house at 1225 El Paso Street and will feed the entire family for under $10! Your kids will love the gigantic chocolate donuts, me, I prefer the Apple Fritters.

There are some decent Mexican restaurants nearby that are tourist friendly, like Pico de Gallo and Mi Tierra. But Taqueria Chalapa Jalisco is where we bring our out of town guests. It is my favorite place for Chicken Enchiladas Verdes. I’m sure everything on the menu is delicious, but we can’t stop with the Enchiladas. The portions are generous and the prices reasonable compared to the tourist spots. Indoor seating only in this basic restaurant, but they have a window for picking up your call-in order. About 2 miles away at 1902 McCullough Avenue.

Shopping and More
Everyone loves The Pearl only two miles away! It has a great, family friendly outdoor area, shopping at unique boutiques and shops, a weekend farmer’s market, a great variety of eateries, and access to my favorite stretch of The Riverwalk headed towards downtown south and to Brackenridge Park directly north. I love the layout of The Pearl which is super pedestrian friendly.

Near the Alamo, this shopping area, which also has a cafe and restaurant, is made up of really charming, small historic building. I love just strolling around and browsing the unique shops.
