Mexican Manhattan

This family business opened in the early 1950s. The unusual combination of “places” in its name got my attention.

Cultural Contrasts On the Neon Sign

After photographing this sign, I learned the local dining institution offers patio seating along the Riverwalk. Wish I’d known that at the time of my nearby stay!  It’s proudly open for business while the City of San Antonio blights its front entrance and street parking with a construction project.

Someone on Flickr commented he’s been eating with his wife at this establishment since the 1970s. He endorses it for being an unpretentious place where locals eat. Most tourists walk by it and never give it a second look.  If you visit San Antonio, the regulars vouch for it!
