It is not pleasant to be the voice of dissension here, but I have a very different take on this place. Crowded, over-priced. Tourist trap for sure.Prime real estate on the San Antonio Riverwalk which attracts lots of people. Inside is like sitting in a basement (which satisfies those seeking a hole in the wall kind of place, because that is what Budro's is.) The the food was not bad; it just wasn't that great. The highlight is watching the wait staff make guacamole at the table; and that's about it. This is the place to go if you want to impress someone by throwing down lots of cash. If you consider dining to be fine solely based on the price tag, this is the place for you.
WAY overpriced - and overrated! The food was mediocre. I had to add a lot of salt to the blackened fish to make it taste halfway decent. Our waiter showed visible annoyance that we didn't order expensive cocktails. I felt taken. I don't recommend.
We have eaten here many times and have always found the food, wait staff, chef and hostess's to be exceptional. We've eaten in the restaurant as well as outdoors and as we are transplanted San Antonians (been here since '81) we have always visited before/between peak dining hours. We've eaten everything from the Blackened Catfish to their perfectly cut and cooked steaks, have enjoyed each of our appetizers and a variety of top shelf drinks made to order. We've even had a late lunch after I had undergone an out patient surgery and enjoyed every bit of our plates. We each typically make sure to order something different and 'share' a bit of each others plate. So, if you are a visitor to our fair city and want to make sure your meal is as excellent as I know you would like, give them a quick call when you get up in the AM and make a reservation for your lunch or dinner. Bon Apetite!
Boudro's is an excellent place to eat!
The wait staff is professional, and well trained. This is not the type of place that just hires anyone to wait tables. It is a very respectable establishment. Make sure to try the Guacamole that is made right at your tableside! It is wonderful. Also, the prickly pear margarita is very tasty! This is a place that is a departure from the normal every-day things that are served at restaurants. If you are in the mood for something different, and amazing...go to Boudro's. This is by far the best food we had on our trip to San Antonio. We would have eaten here every day if we could have.
This was one of my favourite places on the Riverwalk The waiter makes fresh guacamole right at your table. It is supposed to serve 2, but I was able to eat all of it and followed it with delicious cheese enchiladas. Save room for desert, or share one with a friend. Best meal on the Riverwalk. you will need reservations for the evening. Lunch was walk - in.
Our first trip here a couple of months ago was good, but our most recent trip was awful. Upon arrival we were told that the wait was 1 hour, not unusual for this place. They offered to walk us over to their sister restaurant (about a block away) where there was a full bar since Boudros has no bar seating. After a bout a hour a half, we asked the wait staff to check on our table and magically, it was ready. We assume that we slippled though the cracks somewhere. Back at Boudros we requested a seat off of the main aisle and were faced with another 30 minute wait before a table was finally ready. We ordered the blackened prime rib, one of Boudro's specialties. The meat was cooked correctly but was of very poor quality. For $28, I expected at least a decent piece of meat. Since we were starving at this point we ate what we could and chalked it up to experience. The final insult came on our way out when the manager asked us how our dinner was. When we told him about our meal he admitted to us that they had been having trouble with their supplier and were not happy with the quality of the meat either. You would think that under these circumstances management would offer to comp the meal or provide an incentive for a return visit, but no such luck in this case. To be fair, the staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our ordeal, I just expected better of this place.
