My fiancé and I will be traveling to San Antonio from Dallas this weekend. We've (surprisingly) never been there, but are eager to soak up all the sights.

So, to all the S.A. natives....where should we EAT??

More specifically, I want to know which Tex-Mex (and Mex-Mex) places are best and most popular for the locals.

Great choices

Soluna try fish, cerviche or flank steak

Paloma Blanca Try a cup of soup with the meal

Another vote for Rosarios here. Just stay away from Mi Tierra or Casa Rio, both are popular places for tourists but not what I consider places the locals visit frequently. Just my opinon.

As no one else has mentioned these, here are my suggestions:

Mi Tierra downtown 218 Produce Row. Open 24/7 since 1941 really good food, touristy atmosphere, great pastries, cookies and the like at their bakery.

Los Barrios NW side 4223 Blanco Rd originally opened in 1979, this restaurant has great food, excellent atmosphere.

Don Pedro's 1526 SW Military Drive Opened in 1968 the southside tradition lives on as the 2nd and third generation of the Sepulveda family honor their parent's hard work by continuing to serve up tasty Tex-Mex.
Can get a little loud at times, but otherwise nice atmosphere

One of my favorite places!!! We use to eat here after the races at San Antonio Speedway. I can't believe I forgot it.

You might also want to take a look at Urbanspoon's SA page San Antonio Restaurants | Urbanspoon where you can search by area or cuisine. A lot depends on where you're staying and whether you have transportation or not.
There's about as many opinions as there are contributors here, I'd tend to second MattTX's if you're looking for places near downtown. Riverwalk and El Mercado are very nice for strolling, but I probably wouldn't eat there.
