Tom and Teri's Favorite San Antonio Food-n-Fun Places


I thought that this would be a good section for the out-of-towners. These are some of mine and Teri's favorite places in this Lovely City. Some are romantic, some are classy; some are just good eats! Pay them a visit!

The Grey Moss Inn

This is "Our Restauraunt"... Where we had out first date, Feb. 13th, 1997... Valentines Eve. -sniff-sniff-

Although it's rated in the top ten steakhouses in Texas; from casual/jeans to formal attire, just about anything feels right at home in this earthy/old-world atmosphere.

Feast on free-range chicken roasted on a mesquite grill--built over what used to be a well, at this restaurant, formerly a stagecoach stop that dates back to 1872. Other dishes include warm water lobster (sweeter than Maine lobster) squash au gratin, baked potatoes, and a wine list of more than 500 selections.

Prepare to pay $100-130 for two though... It ain't cheap. However, its small, German B&B atmosphere can't be beat.

Our favorist dish is proabably the felet mignon and grilled lobseter tail. And the port/onion/basil sauteed mushrooms are HEAVEN! I don't recommend the Dom though... it just ain't worth it! ;v)

19010 Scenic Loop Road, Helotes (about ten miles outside San Antonio), 210-695-8301.

Ruth's Chris Steakhouse

Another of the top ten steak houses in Texas, and Teri's favorite steakhouse in town! (romantic memories of the Grey Moss aside)...

Yea, It's a chain... But you must admit, they do it right! They are what you would call, steak connoisseurs.

Each steak is cooked to perfection in an 1,800 degree oven (don't ask me how), and presented on a cast iron plate with a pad of sizzling butter! Outstanding! (if you're a steak nut I guess.)

Go Hungry, dress nice, and be prepared to shell out around $120-140 (for two w/wine).

Jim Cullum's Landing

One of our first few dates; a WORLD FAMOUS Jazz Joint (for real!) with a great food, coffee and dessert menu--all done in true New Orleans/Dixyland style! All the greats have played here: Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, Doc Severinsen, Yank Lawson, Benny Goodman, Bobby Hacket, and many others! Reservations can be made if it's a special night; I recommend a seat on the edge of the balcony for the best view and acoustics.

A very nice place to top off the evening with a late night dessert and Bodum of strong imported Coffee! I am blown away every time I go (AND that most of the locals don't even know the place exists!)!!

$6.50 Cover per person. Cofee is not cheap, but very strong. Located on the riverwalk, river level, basement of the Hyatt Regency. Just follow the tunes...

If you go nowhere else in San Antonio, check this place out!
