Yummy gourmet San Antonio mexican restaurant

My husband and I just came back from San Antonio this weekend and had dinner at El Mirador on St. Mary's in the King William district. For those not familiar with San Antonio, this is just south of downtown in a historic area with many restored houses nearby and a very short cab ride from downtown San Antonio.
I had the Chicken Rellano and my husband had the cabrito. The chicken rellano was prepared with an ancho cream sauce, stuffed with goat cheese and served over mashed potatoes. My husband's entree had the goat meat stripped from the bone and prepared with herbs. We thought both entrees superb and are used to paying much more for comparable meals in Houston. Both entrees were under 20 each. We also had margaritas on the rocks and thought them above average as well. The top shelf margarita has 1800 tequila (a very premium tequila) cointreau & grand marnier. One of these puppies will do considerable damage but the taste of the alcohol is not overwhelming. Mario was our waiter this evening and I would recommend him. He obviously enjoys people.
We have also been in for Sunday brunch at this same restaurant and ordered from the omlette bar. There are some unusual options such as squash blossoms and the Oaxacan fungus for your omlette. Yummy, yummy!
