San Antonio has had a spicy love affair with El Mirador since Julian and Maria Treviño opened the doors in 1960. It’s a passion fed by authentic family recipes and a legion of true-hearted fans in a city famous for Mexican food. From 1968 to 2008, Doña Maria’s cooking drew a diverse congregation of devotees – federal judges sat alongside concrete finishers, visiting celebrities vied for seats with hotel housekeepers. And she got good press – as far back as the 1980s, her Sopa Azteca was praised in The New York Times, which also provided the recipe. Breakfast, bronche, lonche y dinner, flavor and pasión infuse every bite of our classic Mexican cooking, served to loyal locals, infatuated visitors just discovering us, and those who just can’t stay away. Chris Hill acquired the restaurant in 2014, promising to keep el amor burning for the alluring satisfaction of Comida Mex.
