Spring into Yum at Some of San Antonio's Favorite Restaurants

Spring has sprung in South Texas, and there's no better place to enjoy it than the beautiful city of San Antonio, which is finally garnering some attention for their vast culinary options. While the sun is shining, but not too hotly, it's the perfect time to dine al fresco. Here are some fantastic restaurants with outdoor dining options and cuisine that spans the gamut. Here you go!

First up, Maverick is one of the newest restaurants to open in the Alamo city, located in the lovely arts district called Southtown. You can make a day or night of this place, as it feels like a true respite from the daily grind. This Texas Brasserie hits on every level, from the food to the decor, service and drinks. They have a stunning patio, perfect for enjoying cocktails and apps, before digging into some of their more decadent eats, such as the rotisserie duck, with confit legs. 

For an exceptional, yet affordable, meal that offers some tried and true South Texas fare, head to Sangria on the Burg for an array of craft-made sangria, margaritas, and one of the best brunches in town. Chow down on some brisket and pork belly tacos and you might just think you've sprung into heaven instead!
