Las Tejas (The Tiles) was founded in 1942 by Leoncio del Canto and his family, in a colonial mansion in Nataniel Street, which characteristics red tiles gave the name to this classic meeting point of San Diego neighborhood.
The bar was relocated in the old Teatro Roma where you can still see the old logo on the entrance of the restaurant. In the mid-70s, the owner sold Las Tejas to Adolfo Lira and his wife, Rebecca Duran, who with his family have been commissioned to endure the tradition of representing this restaurant for the Chilean culture.
Las Tejas, also known as “Palacio del Terremoto” (the Palace of the Earthquake), has established itself as an important exhibitor of typical Chilean food, dazzling visitors with dishes such as Cazuela de vacuno, pernil, parrilladas and costillar. And in recent years it has made an effort to support national cultural shows, allowing the presentation of great national music artists.
