Miche Monday! Tito’s.

Tito’s

955 South Alamo • 210.212.8226

($4.50)

Beer: ✪✪✪✪

  • Choice. I had a Modelo, my go-to beer. The other standards are also available.

Dressing: ✪

  • None.

Spiciness: ✪✪✪

  • Sadly not nearly spicy enough. It had a bit of a peppery punch but no real sting, which I appreciate in a michelada.

Color: ✪✪✪

  • Blonde. They don’t make these with tomato or clamato juice. It suffered because of it. A good michelada has a bit of color to it. Still it made for an airy summer drink.

Overall Taste: ✪✪✪✪

  • Light but better with a shot of tomato juice, which the bartender provided happily when we asked. I love Tito’s. It’s one of my favorite restaurants in San Antonio. This bumped up the star rating here. Still a good michelada has a little something  extra to it: celery, chili powder, olives, hell even shrimp. I mean, that’s a meal! Always visit Tito’s; just don’t think you’ll get the city’s best miche.
