For a quick Eastside lunch, it's hard to beat El Chilito. The faster and arguably more flavorful offshoot of El Chile, this colorful corner taqueria was part of the first wave of hip eateries to hit Cherrywood and is still an anchor of the street. The chef hails from San Antonio, and he brought with him one of the city's claims to fame: the puffy taco, a corn tortilla fried to a bubbly crisp and filled with rich picadillo, plus crisp lettuce and juicy tomato to offset the oiliness. The only thing that can make it better? A generous line of their roasted salsa.
