A popular Mexican food truck concept prized in San Antonio for its breakfast tacos, chilaquiles, and cheese-crusted keto tacos is getting a new permanent home.

Authenticity-driven Naco Mexican Eatery, an award-winning street-foods-of-Mexico concept started more than three years ago by husband-and-wife team Francisco Estrada and Lizzeth Martinez, will open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the Los Patios development this fall.

The new restaurant, to be located at 2015 NE Interstate 410 Loop, will provide diners will plenty of room to stretch out as they scarf down breakfast and all-day Mexican morsels from the expanded Naco menu. The space will include 2,900 square feet for indoor dining, an area for private events, and an expansive 3,000-square-foot patio surrounded by natural landscape and offering a view of Salado Creek.

The new Naco will serve breakfast, lunch, early dinner, and brunch on the weekends, and the food truck operations will continue.

While the brick-and-mortar location will feature a menu of all the food truck fan favorites (tacos, tortas, keto-friendly and veggie-forward dishes, house-made salsas, and, oh yeah, some dang fine freshly made chilaquiles), the Naco menu will also have some new offerings.

Additions include all-day chilaquiles with new sauce options like an intriguing almond mole; a selection of breakfast egg Benedicts made with traditional Mexican toppings like huitlacoche and Naco’s brisket; Mexican-inspired croissants with options like guava and cheese; and all-natural agua frescas.

“We are blessed to be in a wonderful city, surrounded by the most amazing people who have fallen in love with our Mexican food that includes our own family flavors,” Estrada says. “We can’t wait to be able to showcase even more with our full-service restaurant space.”
