Best Restaurants in San Antonio
Southerleigh Haute South
Ok. So’s here’s the deal. Southerleigh Haute South has the best fried chicken I ever had in my life! Hands down. I actually might be glad it’s a five hour drive away from me because I’d be there every day if it was closer.
It’s a casual restaurant concept that serves lunch, dinner, brunch, and take-out. Southerleigh Haute South features a menu based on southern style food including fried chicken, biscuits, and an oyster bar, paired with local Southerleigh craft beers. The restaurant also offers a full bar.
Go for the fired chicken but make sure to save room for dessert because their pies are exceptional as well.
Inspired by Mexico’s Golden Era, La Panaderia also draws influence from French, Italian and American breadmaking techniques which includes a 48-hour fermentation process.
Real pan. Real ingredients. Real cultura.
La Panaderia is open daily for coffee and bakery service, breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
Nestled in the San Antonio Botanical Garden, Jardín is a Mediterranean inspired restaurant with a farmhouse ambiance.
The Mediterranean influences are seen throughout the menu with a plethora of options that highlight fresh, flavorful, garden-driven tastes. A full bar will feature frozen Peach Bellini’s, a classic cocktail program, and a wine list featuring boutique selections of both new and old-world wineries.
During the warmer months, diners can enjoy eating outside in Gertie’s Garden adjacent to the Sullivan Carriage House. This large outdoor patio area is surrounded by mature Texas ash trees that offer wonderful shade in the summer.
Boudro’s on the River Walk
Settle into a table at Boudro’s, a Texas bistro, along the San Antonio Riverwalk and bask in warm and welcoming hospitality as you enjoy a prickly pear margarita and then delight in the tableside guacamole presentation that’s a San Antonio treasure.
Whether you enjoy your experience nestled among the limestone walls inside the restaurant, at a table along the riverwalk or on a barge while floating on the river itself, you’ll see how Boudro’s transforms a meal into a dining event.
The County Line
The County Line has been serving legendary award-winning, slow-smoked bar-b-q since 1975. They are famous for big meaty ribs, extra lean brisket, and spicy German sausage.
Save room for their banana pudding or just order it right from the start so you make sure to enjoy every bite.
