  1. Los Barrios. Get the nachos that come with the chimmichuri sauce. Buy a couple jars to take home...

      Second for Los Barrios. Maybe Henry's Puffy Tacos for an excellent rendition of the local treat now famous nationally. Harmon's BBQ out in Cibolo.

    2. Try Bistro Vatel - Great Duck Confit
      Liberty Bar - Texas, Interior Mexican
      El Mirador - Best Mex I've had.
      Jeruselum Grill - Great Middle Eastern
      If you have a good sized budget Le Reve is outstanding and Biga is very good.

      1. I am also going in the fall and would like to have steak one night. Ideas on this and original post appreciated.

        1. For Texas BBQ try Rudy's or Tom's Ribs. (or better yet, eat at both).

            Tom's has closed, Rudy's is alright for a chain. Check out BBQ Station for the real deal. If you can hit the road there are some fabulous BBQ joints within an hour of SA. Salt Lick outside Austin. In Lockhart TX there's Kreuz, Smitty's and Black's, all top notch.
