Dining

Spend a little or a lot for great value and high-quality meals. Menus vary as much as the choices. Just about every street has extraordinary and fine-dining options. May we suggest as an appetizer:

  • Burritos along Santa Clara Street
  • Burgers, steaks and seafood along Paseo de San Antonio and Park Avenue
  • An eclectic mix of superb restaurants along San Fernando Street between First and Fourth streets.
  • Something for every taste and budget in and around San Pedro Square
  • Simple and delicious foods, from bobas to franks, appealing to the college scene around San Carlos and Third Street
  • Ravioli and pasta in every district of downtown
  • Explore on your own to find that hidden gem of crepes, pad thai, pizza, sushi, bratwurst, jambalaya, garlic fries, tandoori, satay, falafel, veggie fare or barbecue ribs.
