“An authentic German deli”
Welcome to Schilo’s Delicatessen, a San Antonio institution. Our authentic German Deli located in the heart of downtown San Antonio has been serving authentic German cuisine since 1917. Schilo’s is one of the oldest continually operated restaurants in the State of Texas. Housed in an old mercantile exchange building dating back to the 1800’s, Schilo’s embodies that time in San Antonio when the majority of the citizens were of German decent. The exchange’s vault is now our walk-in refrigerator. Old signage, postcards and tile floor continue the German theme throughout the deli. We are known worldwide for our famous homemade Root Beer, Split Pea Soup, Reuben Sandwiches, Hot Mustard and our Weekly Specials. When you are in town, stop by for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Our prices won’t put a dent in your walle
Perfect breakfast spot for people seeing downtown. Close to Riverwalk and short walk to Alamo. Affordable, friendly, comfortable atmosphere, & really great food. Good mix of "regulars" and tourists. We ate bratwurst with our papa fritz's and got a cinnamon roll to share that was so good we got one to go for later.
This is quite simply my favorite restaurant in all of San Antonio. I'm a lifelong resident of the city and whenever I am in the Downtown area there is only one option in terms of food and that is Schilo's. I love German food and I love history. This place has both! Their house-made split-pea soup (try it with a cut up knockwurst added; it's insanely good) and root beer are legendary. I am a schnitzel enthusiast and the wienerschnitzel at Schilo's is the best I have ever eaten. Oh, it's a deli, so you can't go wrong with their sandwiches if you want something lighter. Yes, the Reuben is great, but if you want to go off script a bit, order the Papa Fritz. It will be difficult, but save you some room for dessert. The New York style cheesecake and their streudels are sinfully good. San Antonio has great Tex-Mex and BBQ; of course. But, if you want to think outside of the box a bit, visit this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
