When you're in San Antonio, be sure to go for a walk along the Riverwalk. To make the experience more complete, sit down for a drink, or eat at one of the many restaurants, bars or cafes. Most of them have terraces as well as tables inside, and there are even some on boats. The price range are medium-high, but it's a particularly nice area and it can be worth it for the experience and the quality of the food. San Antonio has been named the most romantic destination in the United States, largely thanks to these restaurants that flank the river. Go for it, and give yourself a special moment.
Buffalo Wild Winds is a chain of sports bar with lots of TVs on the wall showing the latest football, baseball, or basketball games. Ideal place to go have some beers and wings with friends, but probably not the best place if you want to have an intimate conversation. They serve typical bar food like wings, chicken fingers, burgers, and salads.
This Starbucks is located in the Barnes and Noble. It's your typical Starbucks, but the atmosphere is different: it's super quiet and almost everyone is reading. All in all, it's a calm and peaceful place where you can enjoy a coffee and some quality time with your new book.
I discovered Bee's Mexican while walking to Market Square. It's located on Commerce Street, just three minutes from the popular market and directly opposite the Spanish Governor's Palace. It is the kind of place that goes unnoticed among tourists, because from the outside looks more like a shop than a restaurant. Even if you peer inside, the layout of the room (somewhat dark with no windows) usually dissuades the tourists looking for something more inviting. However, this restaurant is run by a Mexican family that serves tasty homemade food at unbeatable prices. I ordered 3 mini tacos pastor and a glass of water and it cost $3.21. Unbeatable.
Saltgrass is one of the many restaurants you'll find the Riverwalk. There are some outdoor tables so you can soak up the Riverwalk atmosphere, but the Western-style interior is just as nice. For its location, it's really not an expensive place. I got the baked potato soup and it was pretty good (though I had actually ordered the tortilla soup). However, it did take half an hour to bring the food. I also got the Hickory chicken burger with BBQ sauce, caramelized onions, mushrooms and jack cheese and it was delicious. The kitchen is open late (10:00pm) and they have free wi-fi.
Cracker Barrel is a chain restaurant that serves country-style American food like apple pie, steaks, corn on the cob, and chili. It's a family-friendly place and most the clientele seemed to be elderly or families with kids. Before you enter the restaurant, there's a little general store selling things like jams, blankets, cookware, clothing and more. It's a nice place to look around while you're waiting to be seated.
Great restaurant in new and vibrant development let of downtown San Antonio. Lots of activities to do around the pearl and close access to river walk extension. Restaurant has very good texas and American food and great ambiance as well.
This burger joint is in front of [poi = 120518] The Alamo [/ poi]. The burgers are served without anything on them, no seasoning, no lettuce, no tomato, and you put whatever you want on afterwards. We were in a hurry that day and we ate them very fast, but then we realized that the burgers were spectacular. It really was the best I've tasted.
It is located in the Market Plaza in Market Square. The restaurant offers Tex-Mex fast food: soft tacos, crispy tacos, gorditas, nachos, brisket, onion rings and fajitas. The service is fast and the prices are very cheap.
This cafe is in the heart of La Villita. The service is fast and very friendly, and in addition, they serve strawberry lemonade ($ 3) which is delicious. If you're hungry, you can order a salad or some Mexican entree. The kitchen closes at 4.
This pizzeria is one of several restaurants located in the La Cantera shopping center, just outside of San Antonio. They have several dishes - salads, pastas, and wraps, as well as pizzas, which are sold whole or by the slice (very generous portions).
