You could say that Esquire Tavern has had some regulars. That's no surprise since it's been in continuous operation since 1933, a Texas record. Perhaps people never tire of the 79-foot bar, a signature feature of the modest barroom. Could it be Esquire's reputation for the cheapest drinks along the river (reportedly almost half the price of other places) that keeps them coming back? Ponder these questions as you sip a longneck and listen to strolling mariachis.In more recent years, The Esquire has become a hangout for local and visiting foodies who appreciate the effort and dedication they have to incredible scratch-made fare.Enjoy a variety of appetizers, soups, salads, burgers, sandwiches and entrees, including beef short rib empanadas, fried catfish, chile relleno and chicken-fried ribeye. Oh, no, they didn't! Yes, yes, they did! You can even enjoy a few sweets if you have room. Try their fried apple pie or ice cream float for a true delight! The cocktail options are also out of this world. So good you'll have trouble moving on to the next bar.
