Small Business Spotlight: San Antonio Bar and Grill

Here is some good news for Brooklanders craving Tex-Mex food. San Antonio Bar and Grill reopened over the weekend. We gave them a call and they said they will be open from 12:00 – 9:00 pm daily (except Mondays). Call them to order pick up 202 832 8080 and delivery is via UberEats. Their menu is listed on their website, although given the current situation, I would not be surprised if they may not have the full menu available, as is the case with many restaurants. We checked the UberEats apps and didn’t see margaritas or other hard beverages offered, so you may have to call about those. But, based on their Facebook posting below, they are definitely advertising margaritas. San Antonio’s is located at 3908 12th St. NE.
