“Great Venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

It’s a simple concept: Offer people a place to sit and enjoy themselves with a good array of beers and wide range of foods. Alamo Street Eats accommodates on all accounts. The space has both shaded and sunny seating at picnic tables. The main building has a small window for ordering from the dozen or so beers on tap, and then there are the food trucks on the property offering up a variety of dishes. The Attaboy airstream trailer had literally the best veggie burger I’ve ever had, along with good fresh fries (sweet potato were slightly better than the regular fries, but both were good). It's a short walk from the convention center, so if you're in town for something and dread heading back to the Riverwalk, head here for a bit more local flair and flavor. (Closed on Mondays.)

“Good Times!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

This is SO worth the short walk!!! Great people- watching in a cool area... Good drink selection, awesome food! Out fave was the "Where Y'at" truck- Boudan Balls were Killer!!! And we spend lots of time in NOLA, so... Dang, they were good!!! It's a really fun concept & well- planned out. Picnic tables, fans, pets, & shade... A must- try stop when in town. We will be back, for sure!!!

“BEST Sweet Potato fries EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

AttaBurger truck has good burgers but I could eat those fries forever! The idea of the food truck court helped me survive the chain restaurant hell that is San Antonio. I thank you!

“Fun food and drinks, relaxed stmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The food trucks have a lot of variety and are generally good. Excellent selection of local beer, although a bit on the pricy side for beverages. Bathroom cleanliness so/so, but hey, what do you expect at a place like this! Very laid back, sometimes there's live music which is nice. Definitely worth a visit.

“Great for young people to hang out.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

The food trucks offer a great variety of food choices and prices. The beer selection is the best. Open atmosphere makes for a friendly spot. Make sure you have enough cash because some food truck don't take credit cards, or not enough cash on hand to make change. These people work hard to provide, so I like to accomodate by having enough cash to make it thru the evening I'm there.
