Johnny Hernandez's Burgerteca Grand Opening on Dec. 4


It's here! It's here! Burgerteca, the brand new restaurant concept developed by locally renowned Chef Johnny Hernandez, is having its official grand opening to the public on Monday, December 4, 2017. Woohoo!

When I was approached to do photography for Johnny Hernandez, I jumped on it because hello - it's Johnny Hernandez! After the photoshoot, I could not wait for Burgerteca to open up! So many innovative ideas that blend culinary cultures in one stop. 


Influenced by Mexican cuisine, Burgerteca is a never-done before burger concept that offers custom-made burgers with ingredients and flavors distinct to traditional Mexican food such as chiles, spices, moles, queso, flavors like al pastor, pibil, and chilaquiles served on hamburger yeast buns which are baked daily. Drawing inspiration from extensive travel throughout various parts of Mexico, Hernandez’s burger menu is themed with flavors native to Oaxaca, Puebla, Veracruz, and Yucatan.  The menu includes items such as the ‘Oaxaqueña’, an Angus beef patty dressed with mole negro, black bean spread, pickled onions, avocado, and queso fresco, as well as the ‘Pacifica’ with seared tuna topped off with chipotle-lime mayo, cabbage slaw, sesame seeds, avocado, and tomato.

Burgerteca is located at 403 Blue Star, San Antonio, TX 78204, directly on the Riverwalk Mission Reach, the eight-mile stretch that provides visitors with a historic view of San Antonio. Burgerteca is situated close to walking and biking trails, the perfect place to pop in after a run or outdoors activity.

Burgerteca hours of operations are Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.For more information, please visit
