Splashed across the back wall of the Cortez Family's Pico de Gallo, the more local-friendly sister restaurant of Mi Tierra Café and Bakery and La Margarita Restaurant and Oyster Bar, is an elaborate mural featuring dozens of notable Latinos. Try to identify them all — over tangy margaritas and a sizzling charbroiled chicken, fajita and sausage parrillada — to test your knowledge of Mexican-American history and San Antonio's Latino cultural heritage. See if you can name the civil rights activists, religious and military leaders, and celebrities without pulling out your smartphone. History lessons are always better when paired with a little Tex-Mex. 111 S. Leona St., (210) 225-6060, picodegallo.com
