Our Story

Brothers Salvador, Rafael, and Mario Alvarez, from San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Mexico, opened their first Mexican restaurant in 2001 in San Antonio. The Alvarez brothers, who come from a family of 14 siblings, opened a second location in Schertz, TX thereafter. From 2002-2003, the brothers also owned another restaurant called My Little Mexican Café, on Clark Avenue & Roland Avenue. They decided to expand towards the deeper NE side of San Antonio, thus El Jalisco Mexican Restaurant #2 in Schertz was born.
Salvador, Rafael, and Mario each have many years of experience cooking authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex food. Salvador even has more than 7 years of experience cooking Asian and Chinese cuisine in San Antonio.
