American businessman and restaurateur. Stehling and his brother, Mike Stehling, co-founded Taco Cabana, a fast food restaurant chain specializing in Tex-Mex cuisine, in 1978 in San Antonio, Texas. Felix Stehling's wife, Billie Jo Stehling, created the décor and overall interior look for the restaurant chain. Mike Stehling later left the company.
Felix Stehling decided to take Taco Cabana public when the chain reached fifty stores, including locations in Austin and Houston. However, in 1994 Taco Cabana's board of directors ousted Stehling from the company. Taco Cabana, which is currently owned by the Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc, now has 162 locations, as of December 2012, spread throughout Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
Stehling is also credited as the inventor of the beanburger, a now common dish in the San Antonio area, consisting of refried beans, Fritos and Cheez Whiz.
Stehling, who suffered from dementia during his later years, died on 10 December 2012, aged 87.
