In 1941, Pete and Cruz Cortez opened a little three-table cafe for early-rising farmers and workers at San Antonio's Mercado [Market]. Sixty-five years later, the Cortez family is still serving authentic Mexican food to hometown regulars and hungry tourists at their three restaurants: La Margarita, Mi Tierra, and Pico de Gallo.

La Margarita is well-known for being the first American restaurant to serve sizzling fajitas. And it's pretty famous for amazing margaritas, too!

Pete's and Cruz's children and grandchildren continue the family tradition of good food and big-hearted hospitality at the family of restaurants. Join us!
