The El Felix

The El Felix is a spin on southwestern cuisine that plays to Ford Fry and Chef Kevin Maxey's Texan roots with a relaxed, inviting atmosphere. 

In creating the menu, the east Texas-natives designed a "Mex-Tex" menu that plays to their own Texan roots, tracing the beginnings of the cuisine to the 1930s, as Mexican cooks first doctored up their dishes to suit a "Gringo" palate with Americanized elements, giving birth to the Tex-Mex dialogue.

"Kevin and I wanted to do food we like to eat," Fry said. "It's natural for a chef to want to be true to a certain culture, and likewise, we wanted to do authentic Tex-Mex, because it developed where we're from.”

The menu includes classic Tex-Mex techniques such as braising for bean dishes, a mesquite flavored wood-burning grill for fajitas several ways and authentic, handmade tortillas. Cultural classic dishes include hot tamales, pollo con mole, chilis rellenos, sopa de tortilla and "puffy tacos," a San Antonio staple.
