  Lisa and Sylvain at the Alamo Cafe

The Alamo Cafe has been around for over 20 years, serving yummy fresh tortillas (try it with butter) and Tex-Mex meals to a crowd made up of locals and hungry tourists who have just left the airport (that's us!). It can get very busy but there's a great friendly atmosphere all around so it makes for a very nice introduction to San Antonio's great good and hospitality!

Favorite Dish: I ordered chimichangas and although there was no way I could eat it all (it could feed at least two people), it was a very scrumptious meal!
