Alamo Street Eat Bar - San Antonio, Texas

The Dining Companion and I spent some time in one of our favorite places this past weekend, San Antonio, Texas. Over the years we've visited several times and spent a lot of time on the main part of the River Walk. On this visit we did things a bit differently. Instead of going over familiar territory again we spent most of our time in the King Williams area.

We've visited this neighborhood before but not in a few years. One of the places we tried was the Alamo Street Eat Bar. Eat Bar is the site of a walk-up bar that is surrounded by food trucks. The trucks change but there were at least five both times that we visited. 

The bar has a good selection of beers and they feature several that are local to Texas.

We grabbed a couple of beers and took a look at the trucks. We decided on a burger from Chris Callum’s Attaboy Burgers and some Beignets from Where Y’At Third Coast Kitchen (I was looking forward to trying the po'boys at Where Y'at but they had moved on when we got back, maybe next time.)

A tasty burger and a cold beer - doesn't get better than that

Beignets - Powered sugar covered fried deliciousness
We also had some pizza. Sadly I don't have info on that truck. It was a wood fired margherita pizza with tapenade for extra flavor.

This pic does the pizza no justice...good crisp crust, flavorful toppings

There's a covered area in front of the bar and some tables around the site to kick back and enjoy the scene and the food.


On one of our visits a local bike gang showed up...no, not that kind of bike gang.
This kind...

Circa 1962
Alamo Street Eat Bar is a great place to pass an afternoon. People watching, cold beer, good food and pet friendly. If you ever find yourself thinking about a trip to San Antonio plan on making this one of your stops.

Happy dining!
