If SA has a big German influence, where are the German restaurants? Can you recommend some good ones that I can try out?

Thanks!

The Old Heidelberg on San Pedro inside the loop. Also, Schilo's deli downtown is a German deli on the Riverwalk.

Yes!!! What Eleanor said - Schilo's. Mmmm... homemade rootbeer, and an atmosphere that can't be beat.

Those waitresses have been there for forty years, at least... and still have the same hairdos to show for it! Schilo's rocks!

You may also want to head to New Braunfels (closer than Fredericksburg) for German food. And if you want to check out the original "German" part of SA, visit the historic King William district. The Guenther House doesn't serve German food but is a beautiful example of the influence of that era (plus it's just a great place to get breakfast!).

Schilo's has the most wonderful split pea and ham soup ever. I make a good one at home, but they don't worry about niggly things like calories or fat content, so there's is like split pea the way it should be.

I have often wondered if they were any good. I guess one would assume so since they've been there forever. I'll have to give them a try.
