Get Ready for the 2010 Summit: Riverwalk Restaurant Reviews

While we were in San Antonio recently, our Riverwalk tour guide (a local San Antonio native) told us that “any busy restaurant you find along the Riverwalk is a good choice for a memorable evening.”  She was right! There is nothing sadder than visiting a fabulous city like San Antonio and realizing the day you have to leave that you missed out!  So, I’ll be featuring a few of the stops we had time to make over the next couple of weeks so you can include them in your trip to the 2010 TapRooT® Summit, October 27-29 (pre-Summit Courses October 25-26) in San Antonio Texas!

Our first stop was at Boudro’s Texas Bistro — which we highly recommend!  Like dozens of other “must-see” spots along the Riverwalk, Boudro’s is just a short walk from the Summit Hotel, The Westin Riverwalk.  Boudro’s offers a distinctive menu of Texas and southwestern specialties including mesquite grilled Texas quail, smoked shrimp enchiladas, blackened prime rib and seafood straight from the Gulf (download a complete menu).

One of their signature drinks is a Prickly Pear Margarita (very refreshing!).   Ingredients: Tequila, Triple Sec and fresh lime, juice frozen and layered with Prickly Cactus Pear Puree (pictured below).

Another signature drink is Texas Tea.  Ingredients: Gin, Vodka, Rum, Triple Sec, lime, sugar and a splash of Coke with float of Tequila.

You can’t go to Boudro’s and not order the guacamole which is made fresh at your tableside.

A third dinner companion said she didn’t eat guacamole.  We ordered a portion for two people but she changed her mind after conceding to take “just one little bite” so we definitely should have ordered more!

The atmosphere is cozy and bustling.  Outside dining was nice in April, but may be a bit cooler later in the evening in October.  Reservations are recommended.
