San Antonio-based Taco Cabana brought the combo-plate aesthetic of Tex-Mex to the fast-food arena. Although the drive-through waits are almost unbearable in the late-night hours, oft-inebriated revelers jonesing for enchiladas, fajitas, and breakfast tacos line up anyway. Taco Cabana's fresh flour tortillas are good enough to eat alone, so don't throw away any extras. If you're inside, be sure to go hog wild at the extensive condiment bar. All the salsa, pico de gallo, chopped onion, and cilantro you can carry is available free of charge.
