In January, 1977, with the encouragement of family and friends, Chris Madrid, a University of Texas marketing major, opened Chris Madrid's Tacos and Burgers, in historic Mid-town section of San Antonio. The burgers quickly became the favorite menu item and soon the tacos were deleted from the menu and name.
Today, Chris Madrid's has turned into a unique dining experience. It is a quaint, friendly restaurant offering personal attention, a quality product, and a genuine concern for customer satisfaction. Tex-Mex decor adorns the old gas station and cantina. The cantina is a full service bar featuring iced down longnecks and frozen margaritas.Chris Madrid's is a fun family atmosphere where all of San Antonio comes together-from judges to working stiffs and politicos to college students. Customer feed back is encouraged and depended on.
