My bf and I are thinking about moving to SA sometime next summer, and so I'm planning to visit in Nov. to get a feel for the city. I'm hoping that people in SA can help me with some questions. Which restaurants should I try, and where can I get some authentic Tex-Mex? Any suggestions on places I should visit? We're hoping to eventually find a house in a safe, tree filled neighborhood, for less than $200,000. I've read a lot about Westcreek, and plan on checking it out while visiting, but are there any other areas I should look into? I'd really appreciate any info anyone could give me. Thank you!

Again, where you would be working will really drive the locations that you should focus on. My mom lives in San Antonio, as do we (Westcreek) but she is 45 minutes away from me WITHOUT major traffic....so, depending on where you would be having to go daily and when you would be having to go (traffic flow) it would be much better to have some idea where you are going to work/go to school/whatever your daily commitments are to help you figure out a good area to check out in this sprawling city.

Good tex-mex....that is a hard question...LOL! Just about every corner of this city offers some good Tex-Mex!!! That is a MAJOR drawback to living here if you are trying to loose weight...all the excellent food!

Many of the neighborhoods off of Bandera/ Tezel Rd NW of 410 have the trees and the price range you're looking for. Another area we liked was along Thousand Oaks between 281 & 35.

We're new to the area, so haven't fully explored the tex-mex offerings. However, there are so many good places that you can almost stop in any place with a full parking lot!

Thanks for the suggestions! Unfortunately, we most likely won't be able to get jobs until we move, so I have no idea where we will be commuting to. I guess we're looking for a house that's centrally located. I actually saw an episode of "House Hunters" last night, and it showed a subdivision near downtown called "Great Northwest" that was very reasonably priced. I tried looking on here for some info about it, but couldn't really come up with anything. Does anyone know about this neighborhood?

Thanks Paka, I've been on a diet, but I'm really looking forward to cheating with Tex-Mex!

Well, there's the Great Northwest Library, and the Great Northwest HOA... that's in that Tezel Rd area... I don't know how close to downtown it is - with no traffic it takes us about 30 minutes to get downtown from close to that area. The bad thing is that there's no direct highway - you've got to work your way down Bandera or Culebra until you get to 410. I work off of I-10, and have found some great back-roads to get over that direction, so there might be something that works heading toward downtown too - I just don't know the area all that well yet.
