If we were speaking in terms of waist size, San Antonio would be one of the biggest cities in the nation. This is due, in part, to the abundance of great food everywhere in the city. It would be easy to assume that certain types of food would be difficult to find in a largely Hispanic city, and while Tex-Mex does tend to be the house specialty, there are very good restaurants that cater to every taste. Since Trinity is located close to downtown and the Alamo Heights area, it is within a short drive of some delicious dining.
Because students take on so many responsibilities when it comes to class work and extracurricular activities, oftentimes, they want to find a favorite restaurant and stick with it. Because of this, certain restaurant names are often heard on campus such as EZ’s, Chris Madrid’s, or Main Street Pizza. These places serve good food at good prices. But with a little bit more exploration, you can find different places to eat that serve unique dishes for the same price. Twin Sister’s is a vegetarian’s dream, and the nearby Sorrento Ristorante has some of the most authentic Italian food in San Antonio. Getting meals off campus is wonderful for breaking up the Mabee monotony. Because there are so many great places to eat, students should take the time to find new food and learn more about the city, whenever they can.
