SA-Best Restaurants with Kids
My husband and I will be visiting San Antonio in June with our 6-year-old son. This trip will be our first week-long vacation with all three of us. We will be staying at a vacation rental with good access to downtown area and River Walk. We will also be spending time at the ususal kid-tourist areas (SeaWorld, Zoo, NaturalBridge, etc). Our son is not too picky and will eat most foods as long as they are not too spicey. We want to avoid large chains and are looking for fun atmosphere and great food that we can only get in Texas! I look forward to your suggestions.
Thanks, from a Midwest Chowhound
Hi I have an 8 and a 10.
Hacienda is good, great setting and playscape for the kids.
I also like The Cove http://thecove.us/cove/index.php Good local food, close to downtown, play area, basketball hoop, car wash, laundry mat.
Chacho and Chaluccis http://www.chachos.com/Locations-2520Frame.htm
indoor three story playscape, not fine dining but good food, great salsa bar, very good breakfast, smallish chain
Mama's Cafe http://www.mamascafe.net/ Multiple locations small chain, great burgers and wonderful onion rings
Just a few ideas
Haven't tried TwoBros BBQ yet but as you say they have a great outdoor space I understand. Trying to think of some places,but am having trouble right now. As a kid group up here in the 1960s and later coming back in 1971 from Fort Meade,Md, there really weren't places with outdoor play areas, and don't even recall any kids menus either. I don't even recall most places having coloring books or other stuff for kids to do.
I know momma and daddy never took along any thing in the car for us kids to do.
Now if we went out to Bandera and Horseshoe Creek or went to Gonzales or where ever, then they took some books or stuff along,but otherwise no.
There is a place on Perrin Beitel that serves TexMex food that has a play area, but I can't think of the name right now. Someone from SA might know the place I am talking about. I have never eaten there, so I don't know how good the food is.
Oh hey, there is a magazine you can get at the local H.E.B. Grocerystores I think called San Antonio Kids. When you come for vacation you can pick one up.It is a guide for parents for activites and such in the San Antonio area.
You might see if they have a website and if so, ask a few questions about restaurants that are kid friendly.
