Nestled in the Five Point District of San Antonio’s midtown area lies one of the city’s gems, a restaurant called The Cove. This eclectic restaurant, car wash and Laundromat is home to one of the city’s largest beer gardens. Unique in its multi-dimensional offerings, The Cove is a sanctuary for good food and fun.
Serving food that is “S.O.L.” (sustainable, organic and local) The Cove boasts healthier meats and supports local farmers and ranchers. All meat is grass fed in Texas, and contains no antibiotics or hormones. All vegetables are organic and locally grown. Joining forces with other local eateries, The Cove promotes a healthy alternative to highly processed foods.
Their popular Texas Burger, was rated number one by Texas Monthly Magazine in their “The 50 Best Burgers,” article. The Texas Burger is scrumptiously seasoned organic beef patty covered with refried beans, corn chips, sweet grilled onions and topped with ripe avocado and fresh salsa.
Their Lamb Burger is a hefty portion of lamb seasoned with Latin spices topped with fresh greens and cotija cheese.
The Cove also offers a special menu for vegans and glutton-free patrons. If you are looking for a vegetarian item, you must try the Portobello and Spinach Quesadilla. The combination of caramelized mushrooms and fresh spinach drizzled with balsamic vinegar is a personal favorite. Almost every item on The Cove’s menu is served with a side of deliciously seasoned sweet potato fries, which enhances these already enchanting main entrees.
To end your dining experience at The Cove a taste of their Jalapeño-Carrot Cake is a must. This cake strays away from the traditional carrot cake by adding jalapeños and a flavorful punch.
The Cove offers a mellow and entertaining ambience, but nothing says fun more than what is behind the storefront. The actual restaurant is divided between an indoor seating area complete with a bar and stage for live entertainment. Outside there is a playground for children and a basket-ball court for adults.
From appetizer to dessert, The Cove offers flavorful combinations, unique ingredients and a family friendly atmosphere.
The Cove is open Tuesday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Friday through Saturday 11 a.m. to11 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
