11 Places Where You Can Fuel Up While Collecting More Pokemon

Posted By on Wed, Jul 13, 2016 at 11:43 AM

By now you've likely been sucked into the hordes of San Antonians scouring the streets looking for the next best Pokemon. You're yelling at your phone. You're sweaty. You're almost out of pokeballs. Fuel up at the nearest pokestop, which just so happens to be a locally owned eatery and or bar. 

Here are a few stops to get you started.

The Granary 'Cue & Brew
602 Avenue A, (210) 228-0124

Yes, the Pearl is replete with stops (side note: if you stand in front of the wavy sculpture catty-corner from Southerleigh Fine Food & Brewery you can hit up two pokestops: The Pearl Brewery and the cast iron pan by the CIA). But stock up on smoky protein and beer at The Granary before you start your trek through the complex. 

  • Facebook/Stay Golden Social House
Stay Golden Social House
401 Pearl Pkwy.

While you're there, hit up happy hour at Stay Golden Social House from 4 to 7 p.m. for $5 daqs. Beware: You might run into a gaggle of Pokemon GO enthusiasts.

Asian Buffet
1533 Austin Hwy., (210) 802-0395

If you're traveling in packs, a buffet might be your best bet to feed your crew on a budget. And if you're all on the same team (hopefully Mystic) you can take over this gym (if someone hasn't already). 


Thirsty Camel Bar and Lounge
5307 McCullough Ave.

Hunting for Pokemon after hours? Cool down and dance it out at Thirsty Camel. Hit up the pokestop every few minutes and stock up on balls.
