"The nod for most-cutting-edge restaurant design on the River Walk goes to trendy Ácenar, with its taking off space, various levels, eye-popping hues, and cool, umbrella-shaded patio." – Texas Monthly
Hungry for unforgettable Mexican cuisine? Look no further than Ácenar. Nestled along the banks of the San Antonio River Walk at the E. Houston St. bridge (steps away from The Majestic Theater), you'll love Ácenar's modern take on Texas regional Mexican dishes, hip vibe and friendly, casual service. Explore our tantalizing menu…begin with our Zagat-rated "killer margaritas” (try our signature pear cactus margarita or cucumber jalapeño margarita). Move on to our famous tableside guacamole, fresh ceviche, or award-winning buttermilk fried oysters served on yucca chips with jalapeño honey mayo and charred pineapple. For the main course, tantalize your taste buds with our many fine selections of fresh Gulf fish, crab or shrimp (grilled or fried) or a host of our many popular dishes – steam-roasted young Texas goat served with ancho salsa ranchera, duck chalupas, and sizzling parrilladas – all made fresh with a contemporary flare.
