San Antonio takes pride in its weather - it's what Texans do. You can eat outside here almost all year-round, if you don't mind the sweltering sun. However, for non-Texans, now's the time to truly enjoy dining al fresco in the Alamo City. Grab your friends and get ready for some fresh air, fantastic food, and hopefully, a nice bottle of wine or great local beer!
When it comes to al fresco dining, Maverick may have the rest of the city beat. Although the restaurant itself is spectacular, dining out on their patio is simply a must. This Texas brasserie isn't just for Francophiles, although it certainly has a wistful French feel to it. However, the menu is very versatile, from Texas Quail to Pan-Seared Lake Trout to Rotisserie Crispy Duck.
If you're in the mood for Mexican food, La Fonda has a beautiful, lush patio, perfect for sipping margaritas on. Their cuisine is mindful, with healthy options. This is not your typical Tex-Mex restaurant, and they have some of the best fish tacos in the city.
For something more chill, head to The Luxury or Big'z Burger Joint, where they have giant outdoor eating areas, inexpensive eats, not to mention room for the kids and the dogs. What are you waiting for?!
