When it comes to dining in San Antonio, the city is an evolving blend of old and new. Time-honored neighborhood restaurants and casual mainstays are the backbone of San Antonio’s food landscape, and, unlike in some larger cities, these classics manage to coexist with the influx of burgeoning fine dining establishments.
Whether it’s puffy tacos, green curry, fried fish, or smoked brisket, there’s a little something for everyone in the Countdown City. In recent years, mixed-use developments like Pearl have become sites for restauranteurs looking to make an impact in San Antonio, and many have been successful in achieving their goals. Still, residents and frequent visitors remain loyal to the “puro San Anto” homegrown restaurants that make the city so unique.
As with all businesses, because things are changing constantly, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open and find out whether there are updates on current offerings and service models. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the businesses themselves.
