We visited Casa Navarro on a bright spring day. The story of this famous Tejano José Antonio Navarro unfolds as you walk through the walled enclave. He’s rather like the Benjamin Franklin of Texas.
The heat from the sun made the cool and dark interiors more inviting. The white-washed walls and dusty courtyards transported me to a much simpler time. The spaces really felt like a home.
Joy and I spent the heat of the afternoon walking along the sunken river walk. Joy’s friend Carrie directed us to Boudro’s on the walk, where we had the best guacamole of our lives. The steak was delicious, but the guacamole was only topped by the double chocolate brownie. The guacamole recipe is available on their website.
