SoLuna

A relaxed and colorful Mexican restaurant. Soluna’s famous “Chispa” margarita is as authentic as you can get to a true Mexican Margarita. Special Hours: noon-8pm daily.

Restaurant Details

Mesteña, Pour la France, Chuy's ... SoLuna is the latest in a line of restaurants with attitude to occupy this prominent corner in the Collection at Broadway and Sunset. It's tempting to say that with each new tenant the attitude may not have diminished, but the quality has - but we'll leave that judgment to later. No fair skipping to the end. Whatever the verdict, you have to hand it to Jesse Calvillo. After leaving La Fogata, he landed on his feet at El MiraSol with its "alta cocina Mexicana," and if the promise of haute-Mex was never fully realized, the place has clearly been successful. SoLuna, with its decor of pale avocado greens, golds and saturated reds, and a slew of paintings by the ever-present Gilbert Duran (who has managed to place work in restaurants as varied as Torres' Taco Haven and Bohanan's), is slicker than any of the previous efforts. Some food is even served on black plates, perhaps in an effort to justify the price - but I'm getting ahead of myself again. - Ron Bechtol;;The founder of La Fogata transformed yet another piece of San Antonio real estate into a restaurant boasting superb aesthetic qualtiies and authentic Mexican food. $8 margaritas and $5 micheladas wash down such dishes as Lobster Enchiladas and Crab Salad Avocado.

Hot Joy’s twice-fried chicken wings are a classic for a reason. The savory and sweet combo of crab fat and caramel work together perfectly. Plus, the Southtown eatery offers six wings for $6 every Wednesday. Now that sounds like a win.

White Water Bay at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
17000 W I-10, (210) 697-5050, sixflags.com/fiestatexas
For double the fun, you’ll thank yourself for hitting up Fiesta Texas. Have your fun on the regular coasters at night when it’s slightly cooler, but first beat the heat at White Water Bay. There’s a variety of water rides and attractions, such as the Bahama Blaster, Bermuda Triangle, Big Bender and more! Of course, you can’t forget about the Texas-shaped pool, nicknamed the Lone Star Lagoon, and the massive Tornado. Seriously, you’ll be sorry if you don’t stop by before summer ends.
