It's certainly not hard to find somewhere cheap to eat in San Antonio, but a restaurant that hits all the marks when it comes to flavor, quality, service, ambiance and affordability can be few and far between, or at least it used to be! Now, the city is practically bursting with restaurants showcasing talented chefs and fresh, local cuisine - good enough to compete with the more well-known foodie cities in the U.S.
Let's start with The Cookhouse, who serves up the finest New Orleans-style fare in the city. Chef Sypesteyn takes his craft very seriously. At the same time, he loves playing with food. He makes his own charcuterie, bread, cheese and pretty much everything else you'll find on your plate. With access to the freshest gulf seafood, and a talent for bringing authentic Louisiana flavors to Texas, this one is hard to beat when it comes to best value!
After a long day of shopping at La Cantera, The Whiskey Cake is an ideal choice for fabulous fare on the north side of town. They consistently serve great, affordable, scratch-made food that won't put a dent in your wallet or your time.
The downtown landscape can be somewhat daunting to out-of-towners, and frankly, even for locals. It's largely high-end restaurants and steakhouses or unsatisfying fast food. With new restaurants like O'liva, Rebelle and The Clean Plate, you can now eat well for both lunch or dinner!
