We visited The Cove for dinner while visiting family in San Antonio. We had 7 people in our party, including an 8 year old and a 20 month old. We had no problem finding a table to accommodate our party, even though the restaurant was quite busy. The play area was great and occupied the kids while we waited for... More

Love it! Can wash your clothes, car and dog at one spot. The kids can play and you can drink a beer while you watch them. And you can even have a burger if you are hungry. Play ground for the kids so they can have fun while you talk.

Amazing that you can get a fantastic meal and a car wash at the same place. Plus hear local music too! Check it out.

I found this place while stationed at Fort Sam in San Antonio. From the front it seems like it wouldn't be as big as it is because it is sandwiched between a laundromat and car wash. The Chicago-land girl in me instantly loved it (hole in the wall, sketchy places are the best). It exceeded all my expectations. Once you... More

The locally sourced food at The Cove is wonderful. A friend and I went recently when I was in town for a conference. The Cove was recommended to her by another friend. I had a wonderful burger and outstanding sweet potato fries. The place was busier than I expected for a weekday lunch, but the line went quickly. There were... More

This restaurant is something really different from what we experience being from Wisconsin. This is pretty much an outdoor restaurant. There is even outdoor play equipment for the kids. The burgers are quite good and come hungry the portions are big. All the product is local including the soda.

I must follow a strict gluten free diet and they made sure that my meal was safe AND delicious. The food was AWESOME and the staff... More

Came to S.A. to escape the cold and snow from CT. Checked out DDD for restaurants to try out. The Cove sounded great. What a good find. The setting is very casual with outdoor dining. The even have a dog park for your friends while you eat. You are paying for the food and it is well worth it. Had... More
