seeking spendy tex food in San Antonio

webjockey Oct 8, 2008 06:28 PM

I have a friend coming in from Boston. She wanted puffy tacos or some sort of tex or mex food. Living in Austin all these years, I see puffy tacos as a lunch treat, and would like to explore some of the nicer restaurants in San Antonio. And no, she won't do French. I tried. I really really tried.

Is there any hope for this dinner meeting?

Can someone recommend a good steak place or some sort of business expense account type place that features a diverse menu that can satisfy my need for interesting chow, and her need for something Texican?

    Azuca on S. Alamo has great dishes from myriad Latin American countries. I second Boudro's, also Biga on the Banks and Acenar.

      You might try Liberty Bar. They don't do Tex-Mex but they do dabble in interior Mexican. Most everything is interesting on their menu.

        Boudro's on the Riverwalk is a must go to restaurant when I'm in SA.

        Start off with a prickly pear margarita and be sure to save room for the dessert.

        Boudro's Texas Bistro On The Riverwalk
        421 E Commerce St Ste A, San Antonio, TX 78205
