The restaurant itself is small. The ordering window is to the right and the menus are posted along the aisle so you can be ready to place your order when you arrive at the front of the line. The menu options were just regular type Mexican food, made with lots of grease and fattening stuff. I carried our tray of food outside and fortunately found one open table where we could eat. The food was okay, not great, yet this place was jam-packed. Both inside and outside, the tables were full. The ordering queue filled the inside aisle and spilled outside the door. I apparently was missing the appeal of this place. Eating here this one time was enough for me.
Over the years I’ve learned that locals shortened the name of this restaurant to SAT-CO and I’ve even heard it called FAT-CO. I believe it. The food was dripping in grease and I could practically feel it clogging my arteries.
When an acquaintance learned I frequently traveled to Nashville, she enthusiastically asked me about San Antonio Taco Company. She had lived there for several years and missed the food from this restaurant. She shared a story that when laid over at the Nashville airport for several hours, she called in a carry-out order and took a roundtrip cab ride to SAT-CO to get her restaurant fix. I was incredulous. Why would anyone put forth that much effort for this fattening food?
