The New York Times named a San Antonio taco on its list of Best American Dishes of 2023.

  • Take that, Austin.

Details: The brisket taco at Garcia's Mexican Food on Fredericksburg Road made the list.

What they're saying: "A juicy, crisp-edged slab of brisket, a blanket-soft tortilla, some pico de gallo — when the basics are executed this well, there's no need for any other adornments," Times food reporter Priya Krishna writes.

The bottom line: This is no secret to San Antonians, but we'll take the recognition.
