Taxis - need a quick primer

Generally speaking, how easy is it to get a taxi in San Antonio at the usual tourist spots -- the Central Market, Riverwalk, some of the museums, etc? Are there set taxi stands, or do you just flag them down on the street? Will restaurants generally call you a taxi after dinner, if you ask? And do they take credit cards for payment?

Thanks in advance!

No taxi stands but they do congregate at the tourist destinations. I usually have the hotel call me a cab and then get a number from the driver to call later if/when I need a cab. Yes, most restaurants will make the call for you. Yes, they will accept plastic.

I think Yellow Cab is the most prevalent taxi service in the city but there are others.

I think they have an app you can download to arrange pickup in advance.

Great info form Gehrig as usual.

Any of the places will call a cab for you if there aren't any around or waiting..
