What would life be without good food. Well, San Antonio has some of the best restaurants in Texas, and it’s not all Tex-Mex (though you’d be hard-pressed to find better in the Lone Star State). So which restaurants did San Antonio Magazine pick to be the best? Have a look:
Start the day right and indulge your sweet tooth at Tribeca, where Sunday brunch takes on epic new meaning. Or try Magnolia Pancake Haus for a fluffy stack any day. In the mood for a breakfast taco? You can’t miss with the fluffy soft breakfast taco at La Gardenia or the savory stylings of Taco Taco Café.
A good burger goes a long way for lunch (or any time). Grab one of San Antonio’s best at Arcade Midtown Kitchen. Or, if you don’t trust San Antonio Magazine’s rankings, go with the reader-selected Big’z Burger Joint. Either way, you’ll get a juicy burger that makes “Mmmmm” too weak a word.
Not into meat? Have no fear. Green Vegetarian Cuisine has San Antonio’s deepest and best vegetarian and vegan diner/restaurant menu. The Clean Plate, which specializes in the straightforward (as opposed to the trendy or experimental) will never steer you wrong, and if you want a delicious meal free of dairy, soy, eggs, corn, nuts, and preservatives, visit the Little Aussie Bakery & Café.
Try Two Brothers BBQ for family-friendly dinner San Antonio style, or the appropriately named Friendly Spot for dinner with the kids. If you have a hankering for non-American cuisine, Sichuan Cuisine and Phoenix Chinese Café have you covered for Chinese; Morroccan Bites will introduce you to the exquisite pallet of Mediterranean delicacies, as well as the Trattoria in Alamo Heights will give you your Italian food fix (though if you just want a pizza, try Barbaro or Dough Pizzeria Napoletana. But since this is San Antonio, you might want the local favorites. Try Cascabel Mexican Patio or La Gloria, and you’re not likely to be disappointed.
SweetsEven if you didn’t start your day with pancakes, a sweet treat is always a good thing. Get your just desserts at Stella Public House, famous for its salted caramel panna cotta with banana brûlée . You can also try Choco Patisserie, or, if you don’t want a sit-down-dessert, visit Bird Bakery for some of the best cupcakes in town. Just know that whatever you’re looking for, you won’t go hungry in San Antonio.
