In New York City, deli sandwiches measure around 5"-7" high. At Schilo's, you have to open the bread to see if they put meat in there! The food is good, though, and the soup is hot, even if the waiter doesn't pay attention to what you're ordering.

I had been looking forward to having a German style meal, you know sausage, german rye bread and sauerkraut. Well OK they weren't open for dinner on Sunday evening so we went for brunch on Monday morning. We arrived at 10:45am, they said that up to 11am was only breakfasts. But the waiter said I think I can get the... More

Good staple German/Tex lunch food. My favorite is the split-pea soup and the house made root beer is a treat. Prices are reasonable and the historic location near the Riverwalk make it a great place to see how the locals do lunch.

It has been 6-7 years since I actually have spent time downtown San Antonio. We went with some girlfriends for a get away and decided to eat a late breakfast here. It was a convenient short walk to there from the hotel. The homemade biscuits alone are worth going for! I had a traditional 2 egg breakfast, bacon, hash browns,... More

Was walking in San Antonio on a solo trip. I had stumbled upon this eatery. It had a lot of history and charm. I was seated in a booth and there are a lot of pictures and nick-knacks on the wall to entertain. I had a very large grilled chicken sandwich with potato chips and coffee and the price was... More

Very historic, reasonably priced, good food and fast friendly service. Schilio's has been in business since 1917 and in their current location since 1942. The place is completely without pretense and I get the impression it is much more frequented by locals than tourists, even though it is a few steps off the Riverwalk. In addition to the Rueben I...

The hotel concierge recommended Schilo's. I was not sure as first as it seemed to have a slight diner feel, although upon getting my lunch back to the room I was pleasantly surprised. Everything was very fresh, well made, and very good!

Generally the heart of a place like the San Antonio River Walk district means you have a choice of cheap bad food or expensive great food. Schilo's was a great discovery for me, because both my meals there were delicious, and cheap! My first meal there was breakfast. Running from the $18 breakfast my hotel offered, I was walking to...

Went here as part of a Road Scholar program on San Antonio. The food is typical German fare. I had bratwurst with lots of sauerkraut. The draft German lager was good.

We very much enjoyed Shilo's as we had breakfast here three times during our stay and for lunch once. Everything on the breakfast menu was wonderful and the sandwiches were excellent. Great atmosphere, a definite for San Antonio.
