The restaurant sells chilaquiles, tacos, beer, cocktails and aguas frescas. Chilaquiles are served with a variety of salsa flavors, including rojo, chipotle, habanero, entomatados, chile verde and creamy green, the release states.

The chain was founded in 2023 by El Paso-based hospitality group Pan y Agua.

“We are excited to bring the flavors from our hometowns of El Paso and Ciudad Juárez to San Antonio and to be part of the vibrant Pearl District community,” Pan y Agua partner Nick Salgado said in the release. “We know that San Anononians will recognize our passion for authentic Mexican flavor combined with our West Texas spirit.”

Salgado founded Pan y Agua in 2008, along with Octavio Gomez and Chef Rudy Valdes.

This is Pan y Agua’s first restaurant in San Antonio.
