San Antonio is undeniably a cultural mecca of the state — and a foodie paradise! Whether you’re looking to crush a plate of enchiladas with a fresh Chispa margarita before a night cruise on the iconic San Antonio Riverwalk, sink your teeth into a perfectly-cooked and tender slab of Brazilian steak, or treat someone special to an evening of fine dining, San Antonio’s restaurant options run the gamut!
La Fonda on Main
La Fonda on Main is a true staple of the city by travel journalists and hometown natives alike, and there is likely not a better place in town to indulge in some of the best upscale Tex-Mex. In addition to the notoriously delicious food, the fairly central location in town and enjoyable atmosphere make this one of San Antonio’s most beloved restaurants. And bonus points for some stellar margaritas!
A product of the same owners and chefs responsible for La Fonda, Cappy’s Restaurant falls more into the “American contemporary” category in terms of the menu offerings. Considered another one of San Antonio’s upper echelon dining options, the menu draws influence from all over the country with regional and seasonal specialties ranging from quality brunch to fresh seafood and fantastic Kobe beef burgers. A fully-stocked bar tops off the experience!
Pollos Asados Los Nortenos
Returning back to San Antonio’s thriving and notorious Tex-Mex scene, Pollos Asados Los Nortenos has its own real case to make for the title of top Tex-Mex establishment. It’s a little different experience than La Fonda, but the vibes from this older restaurant has an inviting, seasoned, and relaxed feel to it. And their beef fajitas? The quality and authenticity is legit!
Texas De Brazil
Have you ever experienced a Brazilian steakhouse? Texas De Brazil is the perfect place to indulge your inner carnivore with an ambiance that sets the tone for a fun culinary adventure. You can find just about any type of meat, cooked exactly the way you like, in unlimited quantities. That’s right — unlimited! Coupled with some seasonal hits and an extravagant salad bar with what feels like endless options, this place is a fantastic option for meat lovers.
