The Esquire Tavern, accessible from the San Antonio Riverwalk, boasts recipes created by award winning chefs – and a full bar of delicious drinks to quench your thirst. These are a few of the fan favorites here at The Esquire Tavern:
Bison Burger – A staple of our menu, our Bison Burger is made from organic bison, doused with house-made remoulade, and dressed with pickled red onions and white cheddar cheese. As if this didn’t sound mouth-watering enough, you can even add a fried egg for an extra kick.
Esquire Bologna Melt – A slightly lighter fare, our Esquire Bologna Melt is a packed sandwich with thick-sliced bologna, American cheese, house-made Dijon mustard, and a savory aioli sauce. Enjoy this deli specialty with our delectable chili-salt fries.
Wildcat Burger – We’re huge fans of organic, humanely sourced food, which is why our Wildcat Burger is made with certified Niman Ranch beef. The combo of grilled pineapple, red pepper jelly, and a spicy habanero aioli is the perfect meal for those who crave a little sweet with their salty.
Big Red Empanada – A truly unique food, our Big Red empanada combines San Antonio’s love for meat and Big Red. A puff pastry filled with Big Red-braised short rib, salsa verde, cilantro, and a deliciously unique chimichurri, you won’t find a meal like this anywhere else.
Texas Wagyu Ribeye – The San Antonio Riverwalk food scene is a melting pot of ethnicities, which shows in our Texas Wagyu Ribeye. Sourced from Japanese cattle, our 12 oz. Wagyu ribeye is bathed in a house-made garlic-herb butter sauce and grilled to perfection.
Here at The Esquire Tavern, we make our own pickles, condiments, and pastries, and we guarantee you will taste the freshness in our food. Our beer menu contains many Texas-based beers to choose from, such as Ranger Creek, Freetail, and Saint Arnold, and our servers will gladly recommend the best beer to complement whatever meal you choose.
