If you're wanting to get down and dirty with some old school American classics, try the historic Earl Abel's or Jim's, which have been San Antonio traditions for many decades. It's where they eat when Mom's not cooking.
For the ultimate in breakfast goodies, enjoy your morning (or brunch) being wooed by some buttermilk biscuits, pancakes or an assortment of other baked delicacies at Guenther House. Don't worry, you can work it off by taking a walk along the river walk, which is just feet away from the restaurant.
