San Diego-born actor and comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias participated in a Reddit Ask Me Anything session Wednesday, answering hard-hitting questions about career, family and — of course — food.

The Alamo City received a special nod when user 'Fun-ghoul' asked: “Where's your favorite city in the US (or the world I guess) for food?”

The stand-up special and feature film star answered, simply, “San Antonio, Texas ... Garcia's Mexican Restaurant.”

User 'slowfloyd' elaborated on the eatery’s offerings, telling the AMA spectators, “For those that don’t know, Garcia’s is tiny and only open for breakfast and lunch, but their food is amazing, definitely worth the wait for a table to open up. It’s quintessential mom and pop.”

The revered Tex-Mex hole in the wall is located at 842 Fredericksburg Road. It's open Tuesday through Saturday, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
