This is an old hole in the wall, but worth it just to see the place and how they manage the crowds. Good food and service and inexpensive.

I went to Schilo's for the first time tonight looking for something "different" and locally owned. I wasn't disappointed. I've never been willing to try split pea soup before but decided to try something new. It was delicious!!! Unbelievably creamy and flavorful. I'll definitely have it again. The reuben was delicious as was the warm german potatoe salad. We loved the ambiance and the fact that this restaurant has been in it's currently location since 1942 and in business since 1917. It's no accident it's still open for business. Give it a try.

Neat, old time German deli. When we got tired of Mexican food, it hit the spot. Reasonable prices and not too fancy.

My family ate here for dinner. Prices are very reasonable for downtown location. Portion size was very good as well. We all liked our meals except my son. His potato pancakes were not very flavorful. The food we liked best was schnitzel, brats with hot mustard and pea soup. The root beer was also very good.

Old time German deli in the heart of downtown steps from the river walk takes you back in time 100+ years. Visit for lunch or breakfast. Low prices and top quality equal great value. Look down at the hand laid floor and up at the original tin celing. Sit at the bar or in a booth or table. This is a great part of old SA.
