Nothing beats South Texas heat like a paleta. Since 2013, SA Pops has been offering Alamo City residents looking to fight those scorching temperatures the best paletas in town. With adventurous flavors like hibiscus rasberry and Mexican chocolate, SA Pops also offers staples like mango, strawberry and lime. While the simple treat easily brings the taste buds alive, the atmosphere at Chef Andrew Gutierrez's is friendly and his customers have nothing but good things to say — not only about paletas but also about Gutierrez's ice cream and off-the-cuff creations he's known to make on the spot. That's a product of loving what you do. "I always liked ice cream and I always wanted to have my own business, but I've always been working," Gutierrez has told the San Antonio Current. "This is something I could do at the same time." If the constant five-star reviews on SA Pops' Facebook page are any indication, the dessert restaurant's tasty fruit pops are tops.
