Any Texas fans with restaurant recent in San Antonio?
Fogo de Chao. I went while I was in Dallas and it was the most amazing meal ever.
Tip: Do NOT eat all day. At the very most have a little fruit for breakfast. Go as hungry as you possibly can. It's about $50 per person and you can easily get your money's worth. At one point on my plate I had rack of lamb, filet mignon, ribeye, top sirloin, parmesean crusted pork medallions, and some super amazingly good cut of beef that had a funky name.
If you go you can thank me later. Just wait until you stop cursing me from overeating.

Bohannon's Restaurant was totally awsome meal. The Concierge at the Watermark Hotel made this recommendation to us and we thanked him after we returned for such a great lead. It's walking distance from the Riverwalk. Bon Apetit
La Fogata is the best Tex-Mex restaurant I have ever been to. I never go to SA without stopping by. It's a little out of the way from the downtown/river walk area (10 min. cab ride) but well worth the trip.
La Fogata and Mi Tierra are good for sure, but my two favorites for mexican food are Paloma Blanca and Rosarios.
Paloma Blanca is a little north of down town on Broadway in the Alamo Heights area. It was voted best mexican in San Antonio by Zagat. Go with the enchiladas verdes.
Rosarios is closer to the riverwalk in what's called the King William area. Get the enchiladas suizas there. I see on their website that Hispanic Magazine named them one of the 50 best restaurants in the US.
Both are good atmospheres and great food.
If you want to get up out of down town a little, head to the little historic town of Gruene, about 30 minutes north up I-35. It's a very cool little river town and is home to Gruene Hall, the oldest continually running dance hall in Texas (built in 1872). Right next to it, by the old water tower, is the Grist Mill restaurant. It was a mill that mostly burned down in 1922 and is now a gigantic restaurant that hangs out off a cliff overlooking the Guadalupe River. Get the ribs (go full rack), the guadalupe chopped steak, or the Grist burger. Wow, I'm making myself hungry....might have to head there tonight (I live about 5 minutes away).
If you want some good, authentic Texas bbq, head to New Braunfels (basically connected to Gruene) and go to Coopers BBQ. It's a newer location with the original being in Llano, TX (people would drive from all over the state to go there, so now there is one in New Braunfels and one in Ft. Worth). Get the brisket (lean) and some pork tenderloin....uuumm, so good.
If you want to do any shopping around your eating, head up I-10 out of down town to La Cantera. It's a newer, upscale, outdoor mall area that has lots of good shopping and eating. If you want to do pizza go to Grimaldi's. It's based on the Grimaldi's that's in Brooklyn and is as good as it gets. It's a nice time of year to stroll around outside, so La Cantera is nice.
So those are my suggestions. There are a lot of other good places to go too, but those are some of my favorites. Let me know if you have any specific questions or need any other suggestions.
At the gateway to the Blue Star Arts district in San Antonio stands Lisa Wong�s Rosario�s Caf� y Cantina � often referred to as �the best Mexican food in San Antonio� by critics and locals alike.

I was just there last month for a conference, and loved Acenar, on the riverwalk. Someone above mentioned Rosarios and we loved that too.
Great recommendations jadennis. We live in San Antonio and my favorite Mexican restaurants are Paloma Blanca and Rosarios.
I'd add Biga on the Banks on the RIverwalk if you are looking for a really nice place to take the wife--best chef in town.
Max's Wine Dive in the Quarry Village across from the Quarry Market is another place I'd add for good eats--they have a Grimaldi's in that complex too.
WDE and enjoy your visit!
