San Antonio: Guajillo's and Panchito's

I don't get to San Antonio as often as I would like, but I've been there twice in the last two weeks and tried a new-to-me Mexican restaurant each time. Guajillo's, except for the dynamite table salsa, was a disappointment. I got the tacos al pastor, and it was almost horrible--dried out, tasteless meat that I had to douse with salsa in order to gag it down. My waiter was a surly jerk, too. I will not go back.

Yesterday a friend and I each had our first experiences at Panchito's on McCullough, and we each went for the chile relleno stuffed with picadillo. The poblanos were big, and the filling was well seasoned. The batter could have been a little more floury and less eggy, as it totally wilted under the sauce, but as a whole it was a truly excellent chile relleno. My friend shares this opinion. Our server was cordial and took good care of us. I'll certainly go back to Panchito's and try some other dishes.
