We drove out of town and of course, got food within 5 minutes! We had kolaches from the famous Lone Star Kolaches in Austin. Yes, they were good but I don't know if they changed my life or anything! I grew up on kolaches so they are all delicious to me-bread and sausage = good.
Then we worked up an appetite shopping at the San Marcos outlet mall before you guessed it, getting lunch! We went to the famous Centerpoint Station across from the outlet malls. We had delicious burgers and a basket of "frings" (half fries and half onion rings).
Then we continued on to San Antonio! We checked in and rested for awhile before heading to the Riverwalk! Even though we heard the food wasn't great right on the Riverwalk we wanted to give it a try just for the experience. We loved walking up and down the Riverwalk, trying not to fall right in as we looked at all our dinner options!
We finally settled on Casa Rio, the oldest restaurant on the Riverwalk. They had good Mexican food, very satisfying but not spectaular. It was reasonably priced, so overall we were pleased.
The next day we headed to the Alamo and then to a restaurant recommended by some friends- Rosario's. Rosario's is just barely outside the main tourist area in downtown San Antonio. It didn't look like much from the outside but inside it was just the right mix of classy and trendy. We felt like we were walking into this swanky place that we weren't cool enough for. Even the mayor of San Antonio was there eating lunch. (That's how you know you are in the right place!)
Anyways, the food was amazing! By far the best place we ate on our trip. And it wasn't expensive either! The service was great and we loved it!
I guess it is a win win!
