It's kind of hard to believe it took until 2020 for San Antonio to have an event called Taco Week.

Be that as it may, now it does — and the inaugural edition is almost upon us.



San Antonio Taco Week runs Saturday, September 26, through Sunday, October 4, giving residents a chance to pair two of their favorite consumables: beer and tasty things wrapped in tortillas.

As part of the celebration, which benefits the San Antonio Restaurant Association, more than 20 local eateries are offering $5 and $10 specialty taco plates paired with cold beer from event sponsor Corona — or other libations.



Participating restaurants so far include Alamo Biscuit Company, Big Poppa’s Tacos, Beto’s Alt-Mex, Chela’s Tacos, Gold Feather Birds and Beer, La Hacienda le los Barrios, La Hacienda Scenic Loop, Los Barrios Mexican Restaurant, Mi Tierra Café y Panaderia, Mi Familia Café, Patty’s Taco House, Sangria on the Burg, Tapatio Vegan Tacos, Tiago’s Cabo Grille, Viva Vegeria and Viola Ventana.

The restaurants will offer their promotional plates both through dine-in and take-out. Noshers are encouraged to fill out a SA Taco Week Passport and share on social media with #satacoweek for a chance to win a $500 grand prize.

So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
