I'm a hound from Montreal, Canada, and I'll be in San Antonio next week for work. Yeah, I know it's not Austin, but it's as close a Chowhound gets.
So here's the thing. I spend my work days in an industrial wasteland, where for most people lunch mean McDonald's or Cap'n Slimy's Deep Fried Frozen Clam Shack.
But evenings are a different story, and I don't mind venturing out for some good food. Since it's Texas, I'd be interested in knowing your local faves in San Antonio, be they beef, BBQ, Mexican, TexMex, whatever, just so long as it's local cuisine.
I've been to La Fogata many times, which was nice, but I have no idea how it rates vs. other places.
Any help would be much appreciated.
