This is a great place to eat, if you like the deli atmosphere. We had lox and bagels, homemade soup, salad, and sandwiches. You can't go wrong with a good deli and this one is one of the best.

As often as I've been to the Riverwalk, I can't believe I've never seen this place. We walked in on a Saturday morning @ 10 AM and were immediately seated. Our server, Lisa, was a gem. She talked to us about the history of the...More

We had a wonderful breakfast at Schilo's. We got there about 10am on a Sunday and we expected it to be a madhouse. When we walked in, though, there were only a handful of people in there and we easily got a table for six....More

Breakfast was great! Desserts are amazing! But, the highlight was the homemade root beer!! The servers are extremely friendly and attentive. This is a must visit place if you go to San Antonio!

Schilo's is a great choice, centrally located and everything is very reasonably priced. I believe the rootbeer is homemade, it is the best I've ever had

Been here several times and have never been disappointed, great home cooking. Had me a tongue sandwich and it was really good and the root beer is tasty.

I had the potato pancakes, and they were delicious. The place was packed during the lunch, but service was quick. Root beer is a specialty at the place, and it was good. Many options for poultry and vegetarian eaters.

My son and I had lunch here. We had a submarine and pastrami sandwich, both were very good. The split pea soup was also very good. The sandwiches here are much better than any of the sandwich chains. Worth a return trip.

The Riverwalk is so convenient and enjoyable that any hotel is a pleasant walk to get there. I don't remember which would be the closest, if walking is difficult for you, but if not, it's no more than a ten or fifteen minute... More
