Texan food in Downtown San Antonio

Displaced Hoser | Jun 19, 201701:58 PM

Hi all - I'm going to be at a conference in downtown San Antonio for a few days (at the Gonzalez Convention Center, staying at the Menger) and will not have a car. I would like to find tasty places I can easily walk to - within a mile or so. (I'll have more time to walk at dinnertime, so that's what I'm especially looking for; for breakfast or lunch I'd need a place very close to the convention center.)

I live in the Boston area so I am reasonably well provided for international food. I'm looking specifically for Texas cuisine. Since it's San Antonio, I'm especially excited to get puffy tacos, Frito pie, and other Tex-Mex dishes; I'd be interested in good Texas BBQ if that's there as well. Ambience is not the issue - touristy, hole-in-the-wall, whatever, as long as it's good solid Texas cuisine. Any ideas?
