San Antonio Must Eats

I’ve been meaning to do an updated post on our favorite places to eat around town! There are so many yummy places to choose from! Be sure to save this post for anytime you are needing a new place for a fun date night! With all the covid-19 craziness currently going on, it’s so important to support these local businesses! I have included details on how to order ahead, and which place is offering curbside services at this time. If you are sick of cooking and just need to get out of the house, definitely give some of these places a try! I’ve organized these based on what side of town they are on. Enjoy! 

Downtown Area;

Con Huevos Tacos

Call or order online for curbside service. Easily among my top 3 taco shops in SA! So fresh, so yummy, everything is so delicious! You really can’t go wrong here! My top faves are their Quesadilla Desebrada De Res and Chilaquiles Verdes Bowl (add avocado!)

Senor Veggie

Call ahead for take out. Need a yummy vegan place? This is it! Menu occasionally rotates, be sure to check their Instagram for any specials. We loved their Southwestern Empanadas and Veggie Street Tacos.


Call ahead for take out and curbside. “Due to the current situation, The Fruteria and Burgerteca will be merging and offering customers with a consolidated menu. All curbside and takeout orders are to be picked up at The Fruteria. The address is 1401 S. Flores, San Antonio, TX 78204 and our phone number is (210) 251-3104. We appreciate your support during these trying times!” Even with their currently limited menu choices, this is a great place for a yummy Tex-Mex burger! Be sure to also try their chile con queso fries! We have never tried Fruteria but I’m sure it’s amazing too!

2 M Smokehouse

Text or email for curbside pickup. More on the southside of town, but our #1 BBQ around town. They often sell out early and in non-corona days can have a 45-60 minute wait just to order! But they are well worth it! Can’t go wrong here! I love their tacos (only available on certain days) and their Mexican street corn is the best I have ever had! Their sausage is so good too! 

Alamo Heights;

Honchos Churros

Order Online, also offering a drive-thru service at this time. Our #1 Dessert choice in SA! They also have a food truck location in the Medical Center. I always get their mini churros with their Honchos sauce and either, chocolate, Nutella or condensed milk! All so yummy! 

Bird Bakery

Call or email ahead for curbside service. Best cupcakes in SA! Their carrot cake and coconut candy bar are my faves! 

Philly’s Phamous Cheesesteaks

Text ahead orders. Have a few locations but are usually at the Rose Bush (2301 San Pedro Ave). Check their Facebook page for updates. Some of the best cheesesteaks in SA! Very comparable to ones we enjoyed in Philadelphia! Be sure to try their fries with cheese wiz! Their cheesy bacon ranch fries are amazing too! Portions are very generous! 

The Dogfather

Call ahead for curbside. I’m not usually a hot dog fan but this place is something else! A little on the pricey side, but these are not your normal hot dogs, these are gourmet hot dogs and they are amazing! Always so tasty! Their weekly specials are always really unique and amazing! Their Guac dog is my fave! Their tots and curly fries are heaven!

Cabo Bob’s

Order online for drive-tru pickup. Fresh yummy Tex-Mex! They have a number of Austin locations and we were so glad to recently find them here in SA! They somewhat remind me of Cafe Rio, but more Tex-Mex. Their nachos, fish tacos, and steak salad are my faves! But I don’t think you can go wrong here!

Hula Poke

Call ahead for take out. They have a few locations around town, one near the Northstar mall, one off San Pedro off i-10 and one at Bandera and 1604. If you have never had Poke it’s basically like sushi but in a bowl. They also have sushi burritos but I prefer the bowls. So fresh and yummy! I always get their Ahi Tuna and Spicy Salmon. Their eel sauce and sriracha aoili are my fave dressings.

Med Center;

Pasha Mediterranean Grill

Call ahead for take out. Multiple locations around town. We live near their Pasha Express and love it so much, we go almost once a week! Always so fresh, flavorful and always friendly service! Dave always gets a large salad with gyro and chicken. I love to get a rice bowl with chicken. Their tzatziki and spicy hummus are my faves! Be sure to also try their dolma! I’m so glad Dave made me try it, it’s so flavorful and yummy, I crave it all the time! 

Yellowfish Sushi

Order online for drive-tru pick up. Best sushi around town! And major plus that they have a drive-thru window! Unique and yummy menu choices! They are also offering sushi making kits during this time! So fun! 

Snooze, An AM Eatery

Order online or call for take out. I’ve been a number of times and never disappointed! Tons of incredible breakfast options to choose from! Their pancakes are insane in the best way possible! Their pinapple upside down pancakes are heaven. And if you are a fan of eggs benedict, this is the spot for you! I dream about their Pork Chile Verde Benny, soooo good! 

Sichuan House

Order online for pick up for delivery. Their hot and spicy wantons are my fave! Especially with all this chilly rainy weather we have been having! I haven’t tried it yet, but I hear their pork belly is heaven! 

Los Balito’s Taco Shop 

Order online for pick up. A few locations around town. When we lived in the area we would hit the drive-thru of their 24/7 Ingram location all the time. A little on the greasy side being fast food style Mexican food, but always yummy and crazy cheap! Their guacamole loaded, Cali style burritos and breakfast tacos are some of our faves, and they have THE BEST horchata around town! Sometimes I will go through the drive thru for their heavenly horchata by it’s self! Their Shrimp a la Diabla plate is so spicy but so yummy! Their carne Asada fries are so greasy but so yummy! 


Big Aloha’s Ali’i Cove

Call ahead for take out and curbside. Check their Facebook page for updates and confirm hours. In Universal City but well worth the drive! I found them when I had returned from a recent trip to Utah and was hunting for good Hawaiian food, missing Mo’Bettahs. This place hit the spot and is honestly even better than Mo’Bettahs! Their teri chicken and kalua pork are the best I’ve ever had! 

Sauced Wing Bar

Call ahead for curbside. Up for a drive into the Hill Country? We have made the 35 minute drive out to Boerne for this place alone! Hands down the best wings we have ever had! We always get their boneless wings. We’ve never had a sauce we didn’t like, but our faves are their sticky garlic and peach habanero. Be sure to also try their loaded cheese fries and tots! Their tots are really unique, but so yummy!! 

Comfort Pizza

Call ahead for take out. Up for an even farther drive out into the Hill Country? Comfort is the most charming little town, and home to our #1 favorite pizza place! You can’t go wrong here, but our faves is the Guero and Cali Club. Be sure to also try their prickly pear drink!
