What to Eat in San Antonio

San Antonio dining primarily revolves around two types of food: Tex-Mex and meat. Those craving spicy enchiladas or cheesy chimichangas from below the border are encouraged to dine in the Southtown neighborhood. Recent visitors highly recommend Rosario's, which receives top marks for its prompt service and delectable plates like ceviche and chicken flautas.       

However, the large influx of business and recreational travelers has jumpstarted the diversity of cuisine in San Antonio. Downtown restaurants cater to carnivores, offering local favorites like prime rib and chicken-fried steak, and feature some of the more upscale eateries like Bliss and Bohanan's. When you make your way to the River Walk, consider calling the restaurant you select ahead for a reservation since this area is quite popular. Some visitor favorites along the river include Texas bistro Boudro's for its steaks and Ácenar for its contemporary Mexican cuisine. If you'd like to follow the lead of a local, consider signing up for a food tour
