    The Iron Cactus and Casa Rio are really good Mexican food. You should go to Howl at the Moon it is a dueling piano bar on the river walk that is so fun.

    Dick's Last Resort is always fun. Very casual food. If you have a car, Salt Lick Bar-B-Q is famous. It's about an hour away. Cash only, bring your own beer.

    Re: River Walk San Antonio dinner suggestions?

    I have been to SA sveral times and eaten at a variety of places in the moderate to upscale price ranges. I haven't eaten at any of the higher upscale places (e.g. Little Rhein, Citrus...). Here are my suggestions.

    1A. Boudro's (get the guacamole made table-side)
    1B. Paesano's (very good Italian with lots of garlic)

    2. For authentic Mexican on the riverwalk, I have found that the Original Mexican Restaurant is the only one that is close to being authentic. It also is a bit run-down but the food is quite tasty.

    3. For less authentic but still tasty Mexican I would suggest The Iron Cactus.

    4. Zuni Grill is highly rated but I find it to be over-rated.

    5. County Line offers a pretty good deal for some decent BBQ. The sauce may be a bit more tomatoey (not sure that's a real word) than some like but the meat is pretty good.

    6. Saltgrass Steakhouse has reasonably priced, good quality steaks. I would say the quality is a bit better than an Outback.

    I find that the rest of the Mexican restaurants that sit on the riverwalk all kind of taste the same.

    I agree with the person about Dick's Last Resort. It is a blast. Be sure to wear your thick skin and ask for extra napkins and straws.

    If you have some time, Rosario's in the King William District and Mi Tierra in the Central Market are worth the walk for good Mexican. The walk to each is less than a mile. The Central Market is a cool, little area to explore and the walk each way will take you past a few interesting and historic buildings. It is also an easy ride on the trolley or bus.

    I believe this is my first post so I thought I would make it a long one.
