1.    Gourdough’s Public House

215 Losoya St, San Antonio, TX 78205

Ready for a new spin on your meal? Gourdough’s got it! If you can afford a few extra calories on your meal, Gourdough’s packs everything on their menu onto glazed donuts. Donut burgers (especially popular!), salads served with a “piping hot garlic donut”, donut sandwiches, donut entrées and – of course – dessert donuts leave customers with their sweet tooth satisfied. Their most popular menu order is the Ron Burgundy burger donut, so make sure to try it out!




2.    Augie’s Alamo City BBQ Steakhouse

909 Broadway St, San Antonio, TX 78215

Did you really go to Texas if you never ate barbeque?! Augie’s packs the authentic Texas flavors into all of the classics: brisket, ribs, chicken, burgers, mac n’ cheese, mashed potatoes, and so much much more. They offer a huge menu of entrées and sides, a new special each day, a beautifully crafted barbeque sauce, and affordable prices on top! Don’t believe us? Rachel Warren from Florida just tried Augie’s yesterday, and claims that “Augie’s was the best barbeque I have EVER been graced with!”




3.    Acenar Mexican Restaurant


Acenar is the Mexican restaurant you have been waiting for! They are located right on the Riverwalk, and boast sizable seafood and traditional Mexican cuisines. But why dine at Acenar? It sure helps that you will get a free appetizer as a National Leadership Conference attendee! Just show your name badge and receive one free chef’s appetizer with your entrée purchase. Randall Tripka had a fantastic experience at Acenar on her first day at NLC, and said “Acenar offers a great view of the river walk with their indoor and outdoor seating. Their food is full of flavors that will leave you wanting more!”




4.    Dough Pizzeria Napoletana

 518 S Alamo St, San Antonio, TX 78204 

This restaurant offers the most reliable classic dish of them all: pizza! They even offer carryout of their 5-star-rating pizza through a few services you may have heard of (Doordash, Postmates, Grubhub, etc.), so if you don’t want to leave the hotel you can get the best pizza in San Antonio to your doorstep!




5.    River’s Edge Café

200 S Alamo St, San Antonio, TX 78205

This is your stop for the views! Right by the riverside is River’s Edge Café with outdoor seating serving American and South Texan dishes. This is a social media team favorite, with social media writer Olivia Sis saying, “The atmosphere here is fantastic! The food is super delicious, they have specials available for NLC attendees, and you have a perfect view of the River Walk!”
