San Antonio for a Foodie - help please!

ButterflyWest | Nov 29, 201003:09 PM     21

Thanks up front for your input. We are headed to San Antonio for the first time. Hubby is on business so we will be staying on the Riverwalk. We will have a car though, so please don't limit suggestions to just that area - close by would be great though.

I have read many many of the posts already, but would appreciate a "Top, Must Do" list of suggestions. SA Specific are preferred over chains, but if something is simply the best, please include it no matter what it is! Mass crowds are not our favorite - though a few on the River people watching meals will likely happen! Unique with FANTASTIC food is the ultimate for us - please send us in the best directions!

What would be THE happy hour to hit (price and quality of food/drink)?
What is THE Tex-Mex to not miss?
Best breakfast option?
Best bakery?
Best lunch?
Best high end?
Best on the cheap?
Best Jazz spot?
Best almost non-tourist spot on Riverwalk?
Best tourist or hotel restaurant on Riverwalk?
Best local cuisine/sustainable - only local produce/products?
Best crazy/unique place (ex: like a carwash with the best burgers per FN)?
