San Antonio Riverwalk Tex-Mex

Restaurateur Lisa Wong – of Rosario’s – and her business partner Pete Selig, joined forces in 2005 to launch Ácenar … one of the largest and most innovative contemporary Mexican restaurants and bars on the River Walk. Guests will enjoy a modern take on Texas regional Mexican dishes inspired by the history and heritage of these two cultures.

Ácenar’s professional team, led by Executive Chef Richard Sánchez – delivers a culinary explosion of bold Latin-infused flavors. Enjoy many fine selections of Gulf fish, crab and shrimp, or piping-hot San Antonio style enchiladas, savory chiles rellenos, sizzling parrilladas, asadas and cabrito — all made to your satisfaction.

Our multi-level spacious restaurant features floor, balcony and outdoor seating. The interior and exterior reflect colors and designs influenced by Lisa’s Mexican and Asian heritage, such as molcajete walls and pagoda-style patio.

Linger after dinner upstairs in our Balcony Lounge or in our popular Átomar Bar where you’ll enjoy Latino style cocktails, signature margaritas, and premium tequilas from our extensive Latin
drinks menu.

Our talented team is dedicated to ensuring that your dining experience is a memorable one. We thank you for allowing us to serve you and hope to see you time and time again.
