Set up as a deli in 1917 the high tin ceilings and faded walls give this spot the right look. The draught German beer is very reasonably priced. The food keeps you coming back for classic German specialties such as sausage and sauerkraut . Try...More

Ate here twice this week. Had the potato pancakes for breakfast and Wiener schnitzel for lunch along with the pea soup. Food was good but nothing special. Staff was extremely friendly and professional. Schilo’s had all the markings of a DDD place but did not...More

Had the Reuben sandwich and sausage platter. Rueben was good but don't waste your money on the sausage.

Thank you so much! We are a favorite spot for the SAPD bike patrol which is headquartered next door, so glad that made you feel safe!

We almost ran here from the convention center as so many people had raved about the long standing Deli nearby. The wait outside was brief and the line grew behind us quickly. The building is the old original structure with the original/ metal ceiling and...More

When I lived in San Antonioo I never ate here. I remedied that this trip. You could call this an eclectic and somewhat limited menu-they serve only breakfast and lunch. But they have some intersting offerings. I had potato pancakes with homemade applesauce. Very good...More

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
