Feed Your Face And Your Soul At Sacred Heart Church In The Segundo Barrio
Back in the day, you could almost always find a church that would hold a pancake breakfast or enchilada lunch after Sunday Mass. Those days have made a comeback at the jewel of the Segundo Barrio, Sacred Heart Church.
La Tilma Mexican Grill, named after the miraculous cloak of San Juan Diego, is a ministry of Sacred Heart.
The restaurant opens every Saturday and Sunday and dishes up Mexican classics including breakfast specials of two eggs, chilaquiles, beans and tortillas, plus coffee for less than $4. Four tacos, beans, rice, salad, and tortillas will set you back a mere $4.95, or you could go all out and for $5.95 get the Platillo Mexicano.
Everything is made fresh to order, and judging from the almost 800 meals it serves in just two days of the week, it must be amazing. La Tilma isn't just about feeding people or making money, the aim is to help employees get skills that they can take to other jobs in the restaurant business.
La Tilma is only open to the public on weekends, but caters during the week. If you want to go and get saved and get fed, head to La Tilma in the Sacred Heart parish hall behind the church on South Oregon Street, Saturdays and Sundays, 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
