Located in an old bank building, this restaurant is quite quaint, and the food is excellent I took pictures of the tile floor and the embossed panels in the ceiling while enjoying my Papa Fritz Breakfast of eggs, bratwurst, & hash browns + more. Scrumptious. My wife's breakfast was just as mouth watering. This was all brought together by our... More

Right on Main Street and a stairway from the Riverwalk. The wienerschnitzl and knockwurst were excellent. Large portions and very reasonable prices. The rolls were good too. I was disappointed in the German potato salad as I never had it in a mashed potato format, which I didn't like. But it did taste right. A very German feel to the... More

After a Short walk from hotel on river walk we were seated quickly about 8:45a on Saturday but a waiting line began shortly after our arrival. Sat in old style wooden booth and served coffee and tea. We had French total, eggs, 2 orders of bacon and potato pancakes. Everything was very good and we both ate for less than... More

If you are staying in a hotel near the river walk, RUN RUN RUN, out of the the overpriced breakfast restaurant and mosey along the river or along South Alamo to a great place to have breakfast. It is not on the River, it is ON TOP of the River. Just walk up the stairs to Street Level and into... More

Great German deli. Homemade mustard was great with the knavkwurst. Thick sliced pumpernickel. Split pea was recommended and delicious. Topped off with the famous homemade rootbeer.

There was always a line to get in, so we had high expectations. The reality is, the sandwiches are thin (bread is thicker than meat), the sauerkraut was weak, the hot food was lukewarm and overall it was simply an OK deli. The homemade root beer was excellent, however.

If you are hungry for a Rueben sandwich this is the place to go. It has one of the best Rueben sandwiches in San Antonio. While you are there order a glass of root beer - oh so good. Pair the corned beef sandwich with a cup of split pea soup, and it's a great day to explore the Riverwalk... More
