Delicious! Good Service and Value. I just moved back to Tx from Arizona (native Texan :) and I was totally satisfied with Casa Rio! This was actually our 2nd choice b/c the first restaurant had an hour and a 1/2 wait. I'm glad our plans changed. We walked a few blocks and Casa Rio had an hr. wait. This place is mulit leveled and right off the Riverwalk (cool scenery). Upstairs, I had a frozen rita that was not too sweet and had a great frozen consistency. I asked my brother about his rita, and the bartender over heard and asked if he'd like to try a top shelf rita instead offering to give us the first. I was appreciative b/c I know most bartenders don't take the time and feel too busy to go the extra mile. We got a table, and were greeted promptly by the server. I noticed he was sat at least 3 tables all at once and handled it perfectly. We never noticed. The queso was great and the server stayed on top of everything. My mom and I coordinated and shared 2 plates, green chicken enchiladas with tomatillo sauce, along with a combo plate with one cheese enchilada and a bean tostada. I was pretty stuffed, but the beans and rice are good too. This was a great welcome back for me and I highly recommend Casa Rio! We got a lot for what we spent. I will definately return.
Fun in the River. I always bring families visiting me here in San Antonio and no matter where they came from, they always love the river scene. It has something to offer for both kids and kids at heart! The Wax and Believe it or Not Museum is just across the street from the Rivercenter Mall. The boat ride is a must if you have someone who's never toured the river and it only cost 5 bucks. I recommend going there on a weekday if you can because it's packed with Air Force visiting families during Saturday and Sunday.
Walk or float through the heart of the city..
Once a nefarious part of the city that military personnel were forbidden from visiting, this 2.5-mile meandering stretch of shallow water, trees and tables with umbrellas has evolved into the top tourist destination in Texas. Within strolling distance of the convention center and surrounded by hotels, the Riverwalk is clearly designed to accommodate tourists, yet the area retains a quaint, guileless charm.
More than 50 restaurants cluster along the river, and while some national chains are present, most bars and eateries are native to San Antonio--including Casa Rio, the promenade's first restaurant, which opened in 1946. Just beyond the Arneson River Theatre there is a quiet path to rugged benches, historic tiles, fountains and a view of the city beyond the water. During the holidays, trees drip with colorful lights and the atmosphere is festive.
awesome. Great vacation spot, relaxing and friendly people. This was my second trip there and I am anxious to go back.
Loved it. I went there a few years ago when i was around 15 and I loved it. I come from a small town and all the sights and peacefulness and uniqueness was just amazing. It is well worth time and money
fun time. had a fun time, the people were great. The weather was great.
The riverwalk is awesome!!!
Just don't get too drunk and fall in the river...Not speaking from experience ;-)
Riverwalk Rocks!!. I have traveled to many places in this great country of ours and the San Antonio Riverwalk is the most beautiful city in the United States. It is clean, fresh and the people are so nice and friendly. The riverwalk is unbelievable! I had the opportunity to move to a small town near by and my husband and I take advantage of the romantic riverwalk and it's plethora of restaurants every chance we get!!
san antonio riverwalk. this place in one and a million. it is definately one of the best places in the city.
City of Romance. I had the opportunity to visit San Antonio, about two weeks ago, a week before Thanksgiving. It is a beautiful city. I was there on a bowling tour, along with some friends. We all visiting from St. Louis, Mo. where the weather is awful cold and inconsistent. We got a chance to go to the malls, the alamo, the riverwalk, the movies, a night club, etc. I particularly like the riverwalk. We took the river ride, and had excellent tour guide name Juan, it was worth taking. The riverwalk is a must see at night. We ate at the Crab Shack, Dick's, and a nice little Bar-B-Q place across the river from Dick's. The weather was sunny in the low 70's. If I had to relocate and move my family San Antonio is where we would move.
