Stephanie and Jesus Martinez, the sibling team behind the Pleasanton Road shop, told MySA they saw buzzworthy videos of the sweet-and-sour treat and thought it would be right at home on their menu — as long as it was Lucas-laden and doused in chamoy.
"We knew people were waiting to have it in San Antonio," Stephanie Martinez told the news site. "People were lining up for it … calling all day.”
As part of their twist on the snack, the Martinezes load up their "pickle enchilado" with extra treats. In addition to a heavy dose of chamoy and Lucas, El Chango Loco throws in Hot Cheetos and a Nerd rope.
Customers can get the whole enchilado for $7.99.
El Chango Loco is located at 2802 Pleasanton Road. It's open Thursday through Tuesday from noon to 10 p.m. and Wednesdays from noon to 5 p.m.
