I am traveling to San Antonio for the first time soon for a long weekend. I am from out of state and am looking forward to some of the local cuisine. I will be staying on the Riverwalk but from what I understand, I don't believe I want to eat there. I will have a car, so getting around will not be a problem. I have done several searches and some of the results were a bit scattered and old. If you SAT chowhounders could help me out, I would be grateful.
1. Looking for the best Tex-Mex in town. Please do not send me across town to visit your local utility Tex-Mex, I am looking for the place that everyone drives across town to get to.
2. Looking for the best authentic Mexican.
3. Puffy Tacos - Does anywhere stand out for these?
3. Barbeque: Anywhere within 50 mile radius that is worth the drive.
