Chef Johnny Hernandez's brands of San Antonio restaurants are returning to pre-pandemic menus and hours of operation. The homegrown, lauded chef who owns La Gloria, Burgerteca, and The Frutería is busy with updates as the end of year approaches. He's working on a new build, holiday orders and expanded hours.
Burgerteca, the Southtown restaurant specializing in Mexican-inspired burgers, is returning to a daily schedule, Hernandez says. The restaurant had been previously closed on Mondays amid the pandemic. Burgerteca will also soon expand the menu of burgers, loaded fries, and sandwiches to include a few pizzas like an al pastor option. The restaurant is also bringing back the Chilaquil Burger, which is topped with an egg, and the Pacifica Tuna Burger.
