When we travel, we always ask where there locals go. While staying in downtown San Antonio, we were told to go to this German deli. It was fantastic! We went for breakfast on both mornings, it was reasonable, high quality, and we'll worth the walk...More

This is a good, solid place for a morning meal. The service is quick and friendly, the coffee is decent and the food is fresh and hot. The biscuit is deceiving in its appearance. It is light and tastes just like a biscuit, although it...More

We stopped by late on a Thursday for a bite. Everyone had the rootbeer and most tried a different sandwich offering. My Reuben was good but not great, and everyone else said the same about their food. The waiter we had was awesome and had...More

Great place to get some home cooked style breakfast; including biscuits, and special German sausage with spicy mustard. I enjoy stopping in here every time I am in San Antonio!

Staff at Palacio del Rio recommended this bakery for breakfast (they also do deli/lunch). They have been there for 100 years and the mosaic floor tells the story. Definitely old world German charm. Do go for breakfast and/or lunch and be sure and read the...More

The service is great!! We came in for breakfast/lunch twice, not too many places serve breakfast downtown unless you're up early (on vacation we don't get up early) this 100 year old restaurant serves breakfast till 11. I wanted the quiche but always made it...More

Glad you enjoyed! On Sundays, we actually serve breakfast till 2:30pm, so you can wake up really late! :)

Actually suggested by a few locals for their potato pancakes. It was great! We came at 11 so got a variety of breakfast and lunch. They accommodated us. Biscuits are amazing and homemade, the gravy was yum. Potato pancakes were good too. Burgers and fries...More

It had been a few years since we had visited this SA icon. We will probably not be returning anytime very soon. The homemade root beer is still good and cold. You get one refill without paying any more money; however, some of the older...More

I'm so sorry you were disappointed, but we appreciate your feedback. Hopefully I can clarify a couple of things though. Our older servers eventually retired so we had to hire new help. For a home brewed root beer, two servings seems to be a generous...More

This is a great place to have a wholesome meal near the Riverwalk without spending a bundle. We had Wiener Schnitzel with red cabbage and it was excellent.

We braved the 106 degree heat and humidity in July to eat at Schilos several times. We also went back for the homemade spicy mustard and took a couple jars home to Virginia! The homemade root beer is so good you know everyone in your...More

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
