Red Roof Plus+ San Antonio Downtown Riverwalk - 1011 E Houston St, San Antonio, TX 78205 | Tel. (210) 229-9973


San Antonio's culinary palette derives from the influence of European and Mexican traditions of generations ago. New arrivals who settled here introduced us to fragrant spices, cooking styles reflecting both heritage and innovation, and foods of exotic lands. Many of our acclaimed chefs who studied elsewhere bring their world-class training back to our culinary landscape. Talented new chefs are honing their skills every day at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America—San Antonio.

Secrets of the Locals

Take some foolproof tips from a local who has written extensively about San Antonio's culinary offerings and traveled the world enough to know what's worth recommending.

Comfort Food

Tommy Moore's Cafe & Deli
Southern-style home cooking and soul-food. Meat loaf, macaroni and cheese, fried chicken, freshly cooked greens, cornbread and cobbler.

Josephine Street Café
A Texas "roadhouse" in an early 1900's building. Friendly, casual staff and patrons. Pot roast, pork chops, steaks and classic chicken-fried steak.

Fabulous Stops on The River Walk!

The San Antonio River Walk is lined with dozens of interesting places to eat. For signature San Antonio food, try any of these spots, some on sections of the River Walk that are well known to locals but not to out-of-towners.

A striking, contemporary ambiance welcomes diners to this colorful Mexican restaurant. Experience house-made salsas, chiles rellenos, mole and more.

Biga on the Banks
Owned by nationally renowned chef Bruce Auden, Biga offers fine dining founded in the classics but reaching into Texas and Southwest regional cuisine.

This “Texas bistro” has great steaks, blackened shrimp and more, but don't miss the guacamole made fresh tableside.

The Fig Tree
In a historic building once occupied by the French consulate, the Fig Tree's traditional menu of steaks and seafood tastes even better served on an elegant outdoor terrace overlooking a quiet bend in the River Walk.

Las Canarias (La Man sión d el Rio)
Sumptuous but not stuffy, Las Canarias' reputation stands for fine wine and cuisine and stellar service.

John Besh's first restaurant outside of New Orleans. Farm-fresh ingredients, bistro specialties from house-made pâté to cold, fresh seafood.

Small plate delicacies served in a steel and glass conservatory, part of the historic Hotel Havana, one of innovative hotelier Liz Lambert's new visions.

Zocca's Italian kitchen serves rich fare like a lump crab tagliatelle if you feel like indulging as well as less indulgent dishes for those watching the waist line.

Outdoor Dining & Patios

Downtown off the River Walk

Charles Court, a lushly landscaped inner-block hideaway a block from the River Walk, provides intimate outdoor seating for Zinc Bistro & Wine Bar. Sip a margarita and have the signature sizzling fajitas at La Margarita Restaurant & Oyster Bar at historic Market Square, just far enough removed from the action to be relaxing.


Sitting on the River Walk's new Museum Reach section, the historic Pearl Brewery is a burgeoning culinary mecca with a crop of noteworthy restaurants, all with outdoor seating. The varied dining options include smoky Texas barbecue with homemade sides at The Granary ‘Cue & Brew, delicate Italian from Osteria Il Sogno, and La Gloria's interior Mexican street foods where you'll dine at the river's edge.

A brief walk or trolley ride from downtown to Southtown in the King William Historic Neighborhood —with an eclectic blend of shops, galleries and restaurants—will be rewarded with unique outdoor dining places like The Monterey or Feast . Drinking and noshing at The Friendly Spot depends almost entirely on benevolent weather and friendly folks, which of course happens often. Tables are scattered under mature pecan trees, and there's a kiddie playground.

The historic Monte Vista neighborhood dates to 1890 and its distinctive homes and gracious trees suggest a bygone era, as does La Fonda on Main, the city's oldest Mexican restaurant. La Fonda's patio is sheltered by an enormous heritage oak.

Alamo Heights sprouted a century ago near the headwaters of the San Antonio River. Try the impressive tree-shaded deck shared by Cappy's, and its less formal sister, Cappyccino's, and admire the local art on the interior walls.

Hill Country

On the city's northern edge, the Texas Hill Country landscape is in full form, and no restaurant takes better advantage of it than La Hacienda de Los Barrios. There is a canopy of mature trees, playgrounds and outdoor bars that cater to every age. The romantic Grey Moss Inn has a stone-flanked patio under a cover of huge oaks and an old well that now serves as a grill. For a Tex-Mex hankering, the view from Aldaco's Stone Oak perched atop a hill can't be beat.

Off-the-Beaten Path

Vets and civilians alike hang out under the stars on the River Walk's new Museum Reach at VFW Post 76, the oldest post in Texas. With a two-story Victorian-style home built in 1904 as the backdrop, come for the ice-cold beer, friendly patrons and live music on weekends.

At the edge of downtown, in the historic Five Points Neighborhood, The Cove has an organic, locally-grown menu, an outdoor patio with a playscape and live music. This truly funky spot also doubles as a car wash.

Kids are a big focus at Two Bros. BBQ & Market on the North Side, across from Walker Ranch Historic Landmark Park. There's an extensive play area, and picnic tables nestled under live oaks complete the picture. This popular pit-barbecue spot is run by one of the city's top chefs and his brother.

Food & Drink Events


When the stars come out over San Antonio, it's time to head to the nightclubs and dance halls. Main Plaza , in the heart of downtown, has live music all year long. Two-step to a country-western band at Cowboys Dance Hall, or soak up Tejano's Latin rhythms at Graham Central Station. San Antonio is home to the revered Jim Cullum Jazz Band (you may have heard their weekly radio show on NPR) and they play live at Bohanan's Prime Steaks & Seafood. Whatever your mood, San Antonio offers a wide range of entertainment options when the sun goes down.
