I was a little nervous eating at a chain restaurant that was fairly empty. However, the food was good. St. Louis ribs with the Carolina honey BBQ. Meat pulled right off the bone. LoAded baked potato was good as were the green beans (with a ton of roasted garlic. So now my breath reeks!). Got the 1/2 rack which they... More

Then everything started going wrong, the hostess seated us and we waited 10 minutes.then the waitress took our drinks.My husband ordered half rack ribs with steak medallions and I ordered the chicken sandwich with...

Want a nice steak while you look over the Christmas Tree and watch the activity in the San Antonio Riverwalk? Tony Romas is the place. The steak, mine was a filet mignon, was excellent and the vegetables tasty. Good wine and drink list too. But our waiter Kidannys make the visit fun! He anticipated our needs and was efficient and...

Had dinner here earlier this month with a couple of friends and although the food was good the service was sketchy and the drinks overpriced. Waiter at one point took our order for dessert then went and had a chat with his friend at the entrance. I had not dined in a Tony Roma before and maybe my expectations were... More

We wanted a light lunch, since I was giving a presentation at a conference right after. I was concerned that ribs and steak would just be too heavy, but I was pleasantly surprised with the appetizer menu. We both ordered the beef steak flatbread appetizer with portobello mushrooms, blue cheese and a mild horseradish sauce drizzled over it. It was... More

We spent the weekend in San Antonio while on holiday in Texas a couple of weeks ago. As we had done the beautiful riverwalk earlier in the day, we went back to our hotel to freshen up for dinner. We decided to go to Tony Roma's at the riverwalk mall. What a disappointment. The medium rare burgers that we ordered... More

Loved this place! We sat outside by the river at a cozy little table with a beautiful view. Ribs were to die for! Plus they let you sample their special hand scrub in the restroom and of course, once you sample it you have to buy it!

Description
Welcome to Tony Roma's -San Antonio.

Located on the river walk in the River Center Mall,just downstairs off Commerce Street we have been a river walk favorite since 1985.

With both inside and outside, river side dining, Tony Roma's is a favorite with locals and visitors alike. Tony Roma's is the place to visit for casual dining on the river walk (or as we like to say "Riber Walk.")

Serving ribs, steaks, and seafood, Tony Roma's is the largest casual theme restaurant chain specializing in ribs in the world. With nearly 200 restaurant locations in 17 states, 33 countries and six continents.

Our bar scene is also very popular. Featuring 29°F Drafts, Local and Texas Craft Beers, Handshaken Margaritas, and unique specialty cocktails, our bar is a favorite among the river walk crowd.
