Besides Mi Tierra, are there any other Mexican food restaurants open on Christmas Eve night? Several years ago, we ate at one on the riverwalk. Can't remember the name. Thanks.

That sounds like an excellent idea. Some good, down home Mexican food the night before the relatives stress everyone out. Actually, every day should be Mexican food day.....

We love Casa Rio. Last time we went on Christmas Eve, it was closed.

It was my tradition, for about 10 years running, to make beef enchiladas every Christmas Eve......can't remember why I stopped. Homemade Mexican food is so good, and it's like a craft project almost.......so many steps to enchiladas, at least when I make them there is.

(Maybe that's why I quit?)

It's not on the Riverwalk, but we made reservations today for Pappasito's (YUM!) on Christmas Eve. Just a thought! :-)

sapphire, this morning my sister, sister-in-law and brother decided on our family gathering Christmas Eve menu. We are making Mexican food and instead of enchiladas I'm making enchilasagna. Much quicker and easier and the flavor is all there.

I agree most restaurants are open Christmas Eve during the day, but come late afternoon/early evening, most of them close, at least as far as the suburban restaurants are concerned. This is something I've come to realize over the past few years on those occasions when some of my family members wanted to eat out for dinner on Christmas Eve.

A couple of years ago, we ended up at La Posada Del Rey in Lincoln Heights. We weren't particularly looking Mexican Food, it was just the only place in the vicinity that we could find open that evening.
