We had to find a great barbeque restaurant and Republic of Texas was it. Amazing pulled pork sandwiches and great margaritas and specialty drinks. We were very happy with the service and everything we ordered.

We enjoyed a quick lunch. We burgers. The burgers were cooked nicely and the food was flavorful. We sat outdoors on nice afternoon to enjoy the Riverwalk. I would definitely recommend the outdoor seating. The service was very pleasant.

Our group was having a really hard time finding breakfast around 10am, so we came along to the Republic of Texas. I believe that they were one of the last places selling breakfast at or around this time. We all had something quick and easy, nothing spectacular and thats what we got. I enjoyed it, and so did the rest.... More

My daughter and I had supper here on a busy Saturday evening. Our server was friendly and quick. She helped us with the questions we had about the food and beverages. We decided to share a Bison Burger and sweet potato fries. The meal was sufficient to feed both of us. We had just a little room to split a... More

We walked along the river walk looking for a place to eat lunch and out of all the choices we picked this. The tables along the river walk were nice and the staff friendly. The food was just mediocre. The guacamole tasted like it was packaged and the tortilla soup was just so so. Guess we did not make a... More

This restaurant offers outdoor dining right along the sidewalk of the RiverWalk as well as indoors, so it's a good spot to literally immerse yourself in this tourist area. Meals are filling and good, service was fine.

a great location on the Riverwalk and nicely done inside as well. Fun, friendly, efficient staff. Food is standard Tex-Mex..nothing exciting but nothing disappointing either.

Services was ok food not as much. The Republic of Texas Cilantro Chicken Breast, menu reads grilled. NOT!! It was boiled, that was really bad. Friend had Chicken Fried Chicken Plate, the mash potatoes were not only cold they were UNDER cooked. Make sense now why there weren't many customers. I recommend you go somewhere else!

Very nice variety of food to choose from. There were several menu items that we each could easily have chosen and been happy with. My husband got a chicken dish that was quite gristly. He told the waitress and they allowed him to pick a different meal without charging for both. The restaurant was very busy as it was two... More

Good location, it was chilly, but were given a poncho/blanket which helped quite a bit. Food was pretty good. Price was slightly higher than normal, but you're right on the River Walk.
