My family and a group of friends had the pleasure of eating at DeWese's Tip Top Cafe this past weekend.\r My husband and I travel quite a bit and love eating good food. My husband has always said never eat at a restaurant where you don't see a lot of cars. Yes it was packed and we were willing …

No matter what you order, fresh made tortillas you get. This place has great food for a fabulous price. Just be aware, you may pass this place up trying to find it, so drive slow when you exit I-10. With 2 locations in SA, this place is a ""must eat there"" restaurant.

My husband and I eat here about once a week- it is so good! The food is unique and they have a wide variety with tasty chips and salsa to start. I always get the fish tacos and my hubby gets the chile rubbed sirloin- I highly recommend checking this place out :).

I am surprised at some of the reviews I read.....we ate at the downtown location everyday for lunch while visiting San Antonio. Looking for a place that had healthy options we were very impressed with the food. The staff was very friendly and the food was great. We tried something different e…

Molino Rojo is by far the best authentic Mexican restaurant in San Antonio, I love the homemade tortillas and their fajitas are to die for. This has been a Saturday morning breakfast tradition in my family for over 5 years...even after I moved out my family still congregates there to enjoy good…

While staying in San Antonio we didn't have a car and were trying to save every dollar possible, which meant walking instead of taking the bus. So we walked all the way from the other side of San Antonio town to get to this little cafe. It is literally situated in what feels like the middle of n…

I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.
If you want to try a different cuisine.....tired of Mexican, burgers or pizza all the time? Don't want that sluggish feeling ya get after eating so much pasta again? Experiment and try out some Israeli cuisine. Fresh and delicious food like sandwhiches made to the order---with even the vegetables cut/sliced fresh to order. I know this because I have seen it myself. Combinations of flavors and food items that are unique to many people, but that you will really LOVE when you go. Don't miss out on their incredible soups too! You'll want the entire batch of soup----they're that good! As a frequent customer here, I have seen new customers come in, order items they've never tried or tasted ever before, and watch them DEVOUR their plates and state how delicious the food is. Doesn't that say enough? Having coffee that's better than Starbucks doesn't hurt either! Seriously true, folks! Ya know how you can go into some places, ask them questions about their food and it's like they're annoyed with it or they just don't know? I promise you, you will NOT get that type of service here. They're happy to help, happy to explain things to you. So, just do it. Try them out. You'll thank me for the suggestion.
In an era of cutting corners and passing along the bill to the customers, its great to know that their are restaurant owners who still care about the community they are a part of. The staff at Tresca are proud of their ellegant spot in the Plaza at Concord on Sonterra. The hostess explained to us that tresca meant "a love affair." And that the owners indeed have a love for the city they are part of. All of the art is local, and the food is exceptionally fresh crisp and tasty. The server informed us that Tresca is commited to using friendly farm meats and organic veggies. The wine list is extensive yet not over priced and if your group has varied tastes you can order bt the caraffe, glass, bottle, or just a splash. I thought this offering was unique and perfect for diners in this area. I love trying different wines, and it is obvious that Tresca has designed their wine menu with their guests in mind. The service was the best Ive had in quite a while. When it came time to move between courses, it felt as if the entire staff made our group the priority! Thank you and we will be back soon.
I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant. It was close to my particular home, so that was already a plus. However, the actual dining experience was a pleasure. My b/f and I read the reviews about this place. 2 good out of 3. Makes me wonder if the bad one was because they were rude customers. Anyhow, the waiter was pleasant and prompt with everything. He was polite and very attentive to our wants. He suggested his favorite and gave reviews on the dishes we actually did choose. I had the Chicken canalonni (spelling) and it was WONDERFUL. Also, the ambiance of the inside was very pleasant. Clean, sophisticated and romantic. Very tastefully decorated. I was highly impressed with it. The food, from bread, to appetizer to entree' was magnificent. The prices were also very reasonable; comparable to Macaroni grill; however, the quality of food is better here. All in all, I give it 2 thumbs up. It WILL be going into to my recommendation list and my favorites to dine. So please, don't rely on the one negative review - give it a chance.(Pardon all spelling mistakes)
I have been to Pat O's many times for lunch and hurricanes and always have had a great time. Lately I have not been going out because San Antonio Bars are all the same. Meat markets with guys trying to grab you in places they should'nt. Tonight I was downtown with my girls and we ended up on the patio listening to an acoustic band jamming and drinking Yup you guessed it Hurricanes. I went to the ladies room and discovered a stairwell going up with people making their way up there. I followed a couple and ended up in a bar that reminded me of a place I went last winter in Berlin. OMG. it was amazing! I totally forgot about my friends and got lost in the middle of a packed sweaty dancefloor. The Dj was playing the most amazing techno I have ever heard in San Antonio much less the United States and the Bass just grabbed a hold of me and moved me all night. My girls ended up finding me and we had the time of our life! Forget all the other clubs in the city and go there. I promise you will have a blast!
This is the first Rainforest Cafe I have visited. When I heard my fiance, his parents and myself were going THERE for lunch I was disappointed... I thought it would be really tacky and embarassing to be there without kids... anyway, I was wrong! It was so cool inside - they don't just have decorations here and there, they go ALL OUT. It is really neat, a very cool place to eat a meal. Our waiter was a little inattentive, but the atmosphere and the food made up for it. Our portions were HUGE (even for America), and all of our food was very tasty! The aquariums inside were especially impressive... it would be a LOT of fun for a kid to go there, but it was fun for us adults as well!! Their menu is not cheap... not expensive... right in the middle... if you're looking for a fun place to enjoy a yummy lunch/dinner, go here!
My wife and I spent a wonderful anniversary on the river on a Saturday evening back in mid April. I knew we would have to wait since the place is not very big. The wait was only an hour so we just went to another restaurant just down the way and had drinks till our hour was up. He had the guacamole for two to start off with with a few beers. They both were great!.. beers were ice cold and we could not stop eating the guacamole Our waittress was very pleasent had given us just enough attention to make sure our drinks were never empty. We had the blackened prime rib which was very tasty and cooked just right. I would reccommend Boudro's to anyone over one of the chain steak restaurants you can go to one of those next time your are in Arlington or Waco.
We chose The Fig Tree to celebrate my son's 21st birthday and his receiving the Purple Heart for injuries received in Iraq. There were 10 of us along with several other large parties but we felt as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The staff was absolutely wonderful and the food was great. We ordered a variety of dishes and everyone of them came out perfect. When they found out what we were celebrating most of the staff, including the manager, came by to thank my son for his service and to wish him a happy birthday. It is a great upscale restaurant but with such pretty decor, outstanding service and excellent food it is definitely worth the money. When in San Antonio we will definitely to going back to the Fig Tree.
Went there the first day it opened. It was swamped but we were still seated fairly fast. It's typical home cooking fare. If you're not in the mood for typical American food, this not your place. They serve you a lot. I don't think you can walk away from this place hungry. Breakfast is also good. Most plates come with a lot of food. The ham was very good!!! What else is good;mac and cheese, hash brown caserole, meatloaf. Chicken fried steak and okra are decent, I don't believe everyting is made from scratch there as they state. Chicken fried steak looks and tastes a lot like IHOPS. The chicken fried steak is definitely better at Chili's across the street. But service is pretty good considering they have so may customers.
The Carriage House Bistro is a part of the Botanical Garden... my fiance had planned on going through the garden, but we stopped in the Carriage House Bistro first to have lunch. IT WAS AMAZING!! I don't know why their website doesn't have more information on it and how good it is. Anyway, we ordered some sort of dip and "crisptinis" as an appetizer, we both had french onion soup, I ordered some sort of salad with a very zippy dressing... a few glasses of wine... it was just phenomenal, I don't remember having a lunch like that before. Customer service is great there - our waitress was very nice, very friendly, and very knowledgable. We are moving soon but will make it a point to go back there one more time before we leave!!
