- Tacos' Cochinita pibil with pickled onions are one of the menu items at Chela's.
In its latest issue, the magazine named Chela’s Tacos one of "11 Great Taquerias Owned by Women," adding that the mini-chain a "perennial San Antonio favorite.” It was the only Alamo City eatery to make the list.
As evidence of Chela's greatness, Texas Monthly cites owner Celia Davis’ banana leaf–wrapped tamales oaxaqueños and the Costra de Chela, a corn tortilla filled with a slip of fried mozzarella topped with al pastor and pineapple.
Chela's currently operates two brick-and-mortar spaces — 3420 N. St. Mary’s St. and 5231 Broadway, Suite 117 — along with its food truck, which it uses for catering gigs.
