70. Have Lunch At Schilo's


  • Courtesy

The beauty of Schilo's is that it's squished between several less-than-awesome eateries, and it's easy to overlook. Casa Rio has its moments, sure, and Whataburger can hit the right spot after a few drinks, but they're not packing in local lunchtime crowds like the quaint German delicatessen, a part of the San Antonio River Walk landscape since the early 1900s. Service is as close as you'll get to diner-friendly in downtown and beyond, and the menu is filled with legit items we're hard-pressed to find elsewhere such as the corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and grilled rye that makes up their Reuben on a toasted bun with a deviled egg and a cup of their legendary split pea soup. 424 E. Commerce St., (210) 223-6692, schilos.com.
