Because of our impending visit to San Antonio in May, I've been perusing this board to glean the wisdom of the locals on where to eat and where to go. I couldn't help but notice a friendly Texas rivalry between San Antonio boosters and Austin boosters.

So, I'm curious what the locals think. Is San Antonio a better Chowhound city, or is it Austin? And why?

  1. You are more likely to find some muy authentic tex-mex dives in San Antonio. However, Austin is a better chowhound town. The hippies, the University, state govt and techies combine for some interesting venues. More variety in Austin, also.
