So glad I found this site (in People magazine of all places)! Going to San Antonio from May 7th-12th and interested in Italian, Mexican & of course, BBQ - all moderately priced. Just read all the postings about BBQ in the Austin area and we intend to get there to try some combination of Kreuz', Meuller's, Opie's & City Market. But, is there any great BBQ in San Antonio itself (been to Bob's Smokehouse)? Likewise on Italian (been to Piccolo's?)and authentic Mexican. I get the feeling that we should avoid the Riverwalk? Oh, one other thing - maybe a dumb question, but why do the BBQ joints close so early (e.g. open 10 a.m. - 7 p.m.)? Thanks!
