  • San Antonio staple Tomatillos will leave the Broadway corridor on Sunday, September 26.
For more than 25 years, Tomatillos Cafe y Cantina has served up generous portions of Tex-Mex fare with a side of festive atmosphere on Broadway just north of downtown.

But the fiesta is coming to an end — at least in its current location.

The SA staple's last day of business in its current spot will be Sunday, September 26, MySA reports. A representative for the restaurant confirmed plans for its move to 1827 N. Loop 1604 East, Suite 103, which previously housed seafood spot Sam's Boat.

Dallas-based investment group Briarwood Capital purchased Tomatillos' building in February of 2019, the San Antonio Business Journal reports. At that time, the company said it planned to redevelop the property into a new retail or mixed-use concept, but provided no additional details.
