The building was old, tile floor was old, but the food was fabulous! The split pea soup and Reuben sandwich were so good that it was hard to stop eating. Our party of 8 covered may different sandwiches and sides as well as homemade rootbeer - no one left hungry or disappointed.

The food here is just simple stuff but they keep the prices low so that is a plus in a big tourist city where other restaurants can be pricey. However, they do have a couple of things that I recommend. Their pea soup is as good as they say though maybe just a little on the salty side. I have... More

I ate breakfast at this restaurant twice during a recent business trip to San Antonio. Easy walking distance from my hotel with its downtown location.

I read about this place and just had to check it out. I ordered the Reuben sandwich and it was delicious. German potato salad was my side, but I didn't care for it. It was more like a scoop of mashed up potatoes. But, the Reuben and Warsteiner made for a great lunch!

Good service, reasonably priced food and good German beer make this a must stop on any trip to San Antonio. I only regret I didn't find out soon enough that they weren't open Sundays, so I missed trying their breakfast.

Always make a trip to Schilos! A real San Antonio institution - home-made root beer is amazing, as is the Reuben!

Went to lunch here and the food was great. We enjoyed it so much we came back the next morning for breakfast instead of having the free breakfast buffet from our hotel.. The breakfast was also great. If you are looking for a nice breakfast, or some deli type food, this place is highly recommended.
