Dishing out hearty portions of excellent Tex-Mex fare since 1979 in a former Dairy Queen, this is the type of unpretentious, friendly spot San Antonians love. The enchiladas are made of red tortillas and cheese bathed in hearty chile gravy; a classic assortment plate lets you try all five varieties. Departures from Tex-Mex include cabrito (goat) in salsa and the milanesa con papas, described on the menu (accurately) as a Mexican-style chicken-fried steak. If you’re really hungry, try the Los Barrios deluxe special platter, which includes two beef tacos, two cheese enchiladas, a strip of steak, rice, beans, and guacamole. Portions are large. You can easily satisfy hunger pangs with a chalupa Vallarta a la carte ($4), a large red tortilla stacked with chicken, lettuce, tomato, guacamole, carrot strips, jalapeños, cheese, and sour cream.
