Germany is famous for its pretzels, and when baked to perfection, they have a crispy, salty crust with a soft center.
If you would like to enjoy this delicious treat without dusting off your passport, the best nearby German restaurants include:
Schilo's is the oldest restaurant in San Antonio. It was established as a saloon in 1914, and three years later, Mama Schilo began serving some of her classic German recipes. When saloons were forced to close during Prohibition, Schilo's thrived as the family added its now famous root beer to the menu. In 1942, the restaurant moved to its current location which was originally a currency exchange bank. The vault is the walk-in cooler, and the dining area is complete with dark wood and old photographs. The menu includes a variety of items including baked pretzels served with hot mustard.
Surrounded by native live oak trees, the Biergarten features authentic Bavarian cuisine and a large selection of imported and craft beer. It is one of the Riverwalk's most entertaining attractions, and musicians have guests clapping and singing on the weekends. The staff is friendly, and the giant Royal Bavarian salted pretzels are the perfect start to any meal.
Nestled downtown, Kunstler Brewing is an innovative brewery restaurant owned by Vera and Brent Deckard. Kunstler is German for "artist," and the brewmasters create the beers using local ingredients and inventive recipes. In the casual taproom, visitors can play games such as cards and Jenga while munching on giant pretzels served with mustard. Beers include Hawaiian Fog, Big Emma, and Verklemmt.
