Where to eat in San Antonio right now: 5 restaurants with no lines
Love food but hate lines? This month, we've rounded up five San Antonio restaurants where you can eat and dash — no waiting in line. So go grab a bite, and then be on your way.
Vegetarian meets gourmet goodness at Bok Choy, San Antonio's 100-percent vegetarian Asian restaurant. We find ourselves craving the clean stir-fry, loaded with broccolini, spinach, peas, carrots, snow peas, garlic, onions, curry, and red chili. It’s served with your choice of rice, we prefer the fried.
Cosa Nostra Pizzeria
Small and quaint, this pizzeria knows how to make some amazing pies. Everything is cooked by the owners, one of which is the spitting image of Sophia Coppola. Much like the name, which in Italian means “our thing,” they put their spin on each and every dish. Have the capricciosa pizza, with Canadian bacon and salami, or the spinach and ricotta roll.
Daily specials mean you can always discover something new at this Southtown hangout. For us, the Thursday special — meatloaf and mashed potatoes — is a must-try, and Liberty Bar is also our favorite spot for kale chips. You should also be sure to check out their aptly titled "Serious Food & Wine Series."
Orderup serves fast and fresh farm-to-table eats — there's even a to-go option so you can jump any line that could exist. You simply must try the Surfer MahiBurger, with avocado, grilled pineapple, jack cheese, chipotle mayo, and pico.
An Alamo Heights staple with soup, salads, and sandwiches, nicely portioned and healthy. However, we did not pick a very healthy option to share with you. The Italian panini is our favorite: ham, pepperoni, provolone, tomatoes, and a delicious aioli.
