El Pastor

San Antonio
Mexican Restaurant

El Pastor, located just north of the border in McAllen, began serving traditional dishes in Mexico since 1966 before it hopped over to the States in 2009. Throughout its decades-long development, its menu staples (baby goat, charred meat, charro beans, handmade tortillas and hot sauce) haven't been touched; goats are still strictly breast-fed and all meats are charred with mesquite charcoal. What has changed is the addition of a highly praised, all-you-can-eat breakfast bar.
