For our latest edition of this biannual guide to how to dine in San Antonio, we’ve tackled the impossible: Listing just about every essential restaurant residents and visitors should frequent. 

We broke things down into digestible chunks. Use this as a guide for when you can’t decide where to eat, for where to take the family when they visit from out-of-town, for date night, for girl’s night, or when you just want a great burger/taco/seafood platter/scoop of ice cream/what have you. 

With more than 350 places to choose from, you’re bound to find your next food adventure within these pages. If you don’t, we, too, suffer from being human, so let us know if we missed any (we’re pretty sure we did). 

We also caught up with Jason Dady after his turn on Iron Chef Gauntlet and learned what’s to come from the celebrity chef as he expands his portfolio of restaurants. To end our summer on a sweet note, we shared our story on Honeysuckle Tea Time, as sisters Olivia and Sara Hinojosa spread over-the-top goodies across San Anto. 

Here’s to finding your next flavorful adventure.
