Review By: Stefanie Parks –
Ok, now that we’d had a real Texas BBQ meal, it was time for some Tex-Mex. The only problem was that we were still full from our amazing lunch at Augie’s. 7:00 rolled around, then 8, then 9… and it was no use. We were stuffed. But, we needed Tex-Mex, so we hit the river walk and decided that we would just wait as long as we could and then worst-case scenario, we’d just share one entree (and a margarita, and chips and salsa, of course).
Everyone says that you have to eat Tex-Mex in Texas. To be honest, I really had no idea what Tex-Mex was, so I looked it up on Wikipedia. “Tex-Mex is a term describing a regional American cuisine that blends food products available in the US and the culinary creations of Mexican-Americans influenced by Mexican cuisine.”
Well, it tasted like Mexican to me!
We had spent the day scouring the river walk in San Antonio and finally decided on Cafe Ole for dinner. Why? Because of their 60 oz. Margarita, of course (their sign says Cafe Ole – Fajitas and Margaritas… exactly what we wanted). By the time we sat down at around 10pm, we still weren’t starving so we ordered the beef fajitas to share (charbroiled beef marinated with a special blend of spices and served on a bed of grilled onions and bell peppers) and figured that that combined with the bottomless chips and salsa would be plenty.
The fajitas were really good and came with small tortillas, which I loved. The meat was great, the flavor was great, the veggies were great, and the salsa was the perfect heat for me. Even though I wasn’t starving I loved every bite.
There really is nothing like a good Mexican meal and a huge margarita to go along with it! Oh, and an awesome view of the San Antonio river walk doesn’t hurt either.
