The San Antonio Ultimate Where/What to Eat and Drink List

Dedicated to my med school friends who’ve been with me on this food adventure!

As my four years of medical school comes to a close at San Antonio, I decided to write a master post of one of my favorite topics and hobbies: FOOD.

From first year to these very last weeks, my friends and I have done our best with our limited time and money to sample what’s the best of San Antonio. I’m known in my class to have an Instagram that is basically a food Instagram, and I just wanted to close off my year with a compilation post of the best places to eat and drink in SA (in my opinion)!

(These aren’t full reviews – just my recommended places, hours, what to know, and what to order!)


Biga on the Banks

What to Order: Do a tasting menu! Around $70-80 depending on 5 or 6 course meal. Really, really fills you up and gives you a good view of what their menu is like!


What to Order: Oyster sliders, George’s Bank Sea Scallops (some of the best scallops I’ve ever had! So buttery and tender)20140820_211612


What to Order: Pig cheek poutine, charcuterie boards

Boudro’s on the Riverwalk

What to Order: House guacamole (they make it at the table for you!)

What to Order: Ramen. The great thing about this restaurant is that the menu changes often and by season so there is always something new to try.


Cullum’s Attagirl

What to Order: Southern fried chicken, 3 piece hot

Max & Louie’s New York Diner

What to Order: Pastrami chili cheese fries, philly cheese steak, reuben sandwich

Mash’D – The Rim

What to Order: The menu often changes and you can usually find something good on there to order.

The General Public

What to Order: Bone marrow, Fish ‘n’ Chips

Pam’s Patio Kitchen

What to Order: Chicken saltimboca

Didn’t Get to Try (but heard good things about from other people): Bella on the River, Restaurant Gwendolyn, Periphery, Picnikins Patio Café, Southerleigh, Supper, Josephine Street, Signature, J Alexander, The Fig Tree, Luce
