Checking in from San Antonio, Texas!
The Esquire Tavern opened in 1933 to celebrate the end of Prohibition and has been a beloved San Antonio watering hole ever since, with a short hiatus from 2006 to 2011.
The Esquire is back as the quintessential downtown bar:
dark, cool, redolent with history, and serving cold, cold beer, swanky cocktails, and excellent food.
I had the Bison Burger and chili salt fries, both of which were absolutely delicious. The Live Oak Hefeweizen was a little too fruity for my taste, but it was still pretty tasty. Boyfriend had the Bacon Cheeseburger (crispy bacon was a big plus) and we shared Fried Pickles, which were thick-cut pickles instead of spears – battered and fried perfectly. Major kudos to the chef! We were both very happy with our meals.
