We went to Schilo's after it had been recommended by a friend. We ended up there because the queue was too long in the restaurants along the Riverwalk. Dinner was great (try the Reuben!). In fact, it was so good we went back for breakfast the next day. You can't go wrong with this place.

Did not disappoint, in fact we ate there twice. Service is outstanding and the German food is excellent. We had Weiner schnitzel, German potato salad, potato pancakes, pork shank, and sauerkraut. Don't miss this place on Commerce, just above the River Walk.

My husband and I were staying on the RiverWalk at a hotel that didn't have breakfast included. We didn't want to spend $25 per person for breakfast so we found this great gem. My biscuits and gravy were $2.80. They weren't my favorite biscuits and gravy but they were good. My husband had a traditional breakfast with eggs, bacon and... More

Neat German Deli a bit off the River Walk, Great homemade Root beer and homemade spicy mustard. You can even purchase a jar of mustard to take with you.

Enjoyed lunch here last week, the root beer was great, the pea soup was outstanding. The Reuben didn't disappoint and the service friendly, enjoyed my experience and look forward to returning on my visits to San Antonio.

We were a party of 8 and enjoyed a good breakfast experience. Pretty standard breakfast stuff but well presented and nicely cooked. No delays and a reasonable price, sound good to me. Sorry to find it closed on Sundays when we went back!

Nobody expects great food around the riverwalk but poor service has no excuse on a slow morning (empty tables and no line). The food was fine, other than completely flavorless bratwurst and pre-packaged gravy. Our problem was our waiter. He took forever to show up originally then we rarely saw him afterwards. Our eggs and hash browns came out but... More

While visiting San Antonio, my sister and I were looking for something other than Tex- Mex food. Based on recommendations, we decided to eat lunch at Schilo's. When we received our Reuben sandwiches, a Schilo favorite, we were surprised to see a couple of thick slices of corned beef on our sandwiches, rather than deli sliced meat. We ate our... More

We have been to San Antonio endless times and have never eaten at Shilo's Deli. We decided to go for lunch (I heard their breakfast is fantastic too) because it was so close to our hotel Hilton's Placio del Rio. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was fantastic, the staff was friendly and the menu was great. If you are... More
