Gracing the San Antonio Riverwalk since 1986, Boudro's is one of the most treasured restaurants in the city. The Texas-style bistro is popular with both tourists and locals due to its unique waterfront dining experience. Boudro's grants its guests the opportunity to sit directly along the riverbank.
In his specialty menu, Executive Chef Danny Ibarra taps into the big and bold flavors of Southern Texas. Signature dishes include Gulf Coast Crabcakes, Grilled Atlantic Salmon with creole mustard butter, and a Blackened Gulf Fish Fillet. A blue-plate lunch menu offers more affordable dining options. In terms of drinks, consider sampling their memorable prickly pear margarita or a bottle of wine from their extensive cellar.
Boudro's offers a few experiences that set it apart from other San Antonio restaurants. One of Boudro's biggest claims to fame is its community barge dining where guests can enjoy the fantastic food and drink menu while floating down the canals. Reservations for community barge dining may be made up to two weeks in advance, and you need a credit card to hold a reservation.
Another great feature is Boudro's tableside guacamole presentation. This interactive experience allows chefs to prepare the restaurant's signature appetizer directly at your table. This culinary tradition is a San Antonio treasure.
Full menus, barge dining information, and even the recipe for Boudro's famous guacamole can be found on their website.
