Can't say enough positive things about Waxy's. Service was great. Food, particularly the bangers (as good as you'll get in Ireland) was excellent and very reasonably priced. Worth going to when in San Antonio

We walked the short way from the Alamo. Sat and enjoyed the sounds of the water and people watching. The fish and chips were right on. Only had better in Scotland. A very pleasant lunch with good beer and music from the restaurant next door.

I stopped here my first evening in San Antonio, sitting on the patio. Drinks were very good! I had the Guinness Stew, which was good but slightly salty. The brown bread that came with it was superb.

Six of us stopped in here while visiting the Riverwalk because it had a no wait time. Now we know why, everyone else was avoiding the place. Our server seemed great when he first greeted us, but that didn't last long. My wife likes her...More
