San Antonio Recommendations

Hello all, looking for recommendations on my first visit to San Antonio.

Will be there for work this coming weekend for 4 days and trying to find out what places have good authentic food and quality craft beer- the more local the better.
Open for most types of food, I guess whatever San Antonio may do best.

Thanks a lot.

  1. The question is a bit too general but I can tell you that Luke on Houston Street has great beers.

    1. SA is really spread out. Where are you staying, will you have a car? What kind of food are you looking for, any budget?

      1. Looked up the info on Luke's, exactly the type of place I am looking for. Food and beer both look top notch.

        Will be on work funds, so willing to spend a bit but not over the top. Will be at the Hyatt by Riverwalk (wherever that is). Any cuisine will work.

          Several good restaurants at The Pearl Brewery, not far from downtown. Il Sogno for great Italian, La Gloria for upscale MX street food, Sandbar for seafood.

            If you're at the Hyatt Regency they've recently opened a bbq restaurant Q. If you're at the Grand Hyatt (they're both on the Riverwalk) they've got a nice restaurant too (can't remember the name though) but they specialize in different Latin American dishes, like Puerto Rican and Cuban.
