5. Smoke Shack

It used to be just a food truck, which we kind of miss. You see how dang adorable that thing was? But now that they’ve stepped up their game. Smoke Shack offers dinner service at their brick-and-mortar location with unbelievable southern-style BBQ menu items. And, a price tag that is more than just fair, so it easily earns a spot on our list.

6. Sushi Express

This family-owned bar and restaurant serves both authentic Korean and Japanese sushi for dinner. That means if you want a sushi roll, but your date wants beef bulgogi, that’s totally O.K., and neither will hit your wallet hard.

7. Thai Dee

The food at Thai Dee is as authentic as Thai gets in San Antonio. Chef Chanapol Sanseeha, who grew up in Thailand, started the restaurant after leaving culinary school. He decided to bring his skills back home to San Antonio, and deliver us his best Thai cuisine. The result? Delicious.

8. Where Y’at

Although it seems the Gulf Coast is just a stone’s throw away, it can actually be rather difficult to find good creole food. Enter Where Y’at, a downtown food truck that delivers “Authentic New Orleans Gourmet Street Food”. We’re not sure if that’s an oxymoron or not, but a pound of surf n’ turf done just right for a low price will not have us giving you any lip.

9. Dresden Cafe

Located in northern San Antonio, the Dresden Cafe fulfills all your bangers and mash needs. Their sausages, schnitzel and made-from-scratch desserts will leave you nothing short of satisfied, and the sit-down restaurant will earn your loyalty immediately..
