San Antonio captures the spirit of Texas. The seventh largest city in the United States, the city has retained its sense of history and tradition, while carefully blending in cosmopolitan progress. The city has always been a crossroads and a meeting place. The sounds and flavors of Native Americans, Old Mexico, Germans, the Wild West, African-Americans and the Deep South mingle and merge. Over thirty-one million visitors a year delight in the discovery of San Antonio's charms.

San Antonio’s unique heritage and mix of cultures gave way to a culinary landscape that’s truly one-of-a-kind. While we’re famous for our signature Tex-Mex, you’ll also find traditional Mexican cuisine along with German, French, English and Italian eateries. And the venues are just as varied as the types of cuisine they serve. From white tablecloth to savory food trucks to genuine steakhouses and BBQ joints, there’s always something new and different to try. But if you’re looking for a staple, take a seat at one of the colorful, umbrella-topped tables along the River Walk and start with some tableside guacamole. And, of course, a margarita.
