Central Park Pizza of NY in San Antonio Texas

Central Park Pizza of NY in San Antonio Texas

When I was in San Antonio Texas this past December, I stumbled upon a great little Pizza & Pasta Restaurant. My wife and I were walking around the Downtown area just sightseeing and we found “Central Park Pizza Of N.Y. off the Main Plaza about a half block west of the Riverwalk on Main Plaza.

We were getting hungry and it was about 1PM so we decided to go into the Central Park Pizza Of N.Y. Restaurant. Upon entering you are greeted by a very basic sit down area with very basic wood tables that seat from 2 to 4 people and painted walls that remind you of New York. You continue toward the back where you place your order. They have a young, friendly and very accommodating staff that made us feel welcome.  There is a large menu board with all the offerings above the order area. They have everything from Pizza and Pasta to Hot Sub Sandwiches and Salads. The prices are very reasonable. You can get a 14” Cheese Pizza for $9.99 or one of their specialty Pizzas for $12.99 or the “ Central Park Special for $15.99. They also have daily specials, which I had. For $6.99 I had the Baked Ziti, which is served with Garlic bread and a drink. It was some of the best Baked Ziti I have ever had. My wife had the Three Cheese Calzone, which was also delicious. If you want a great  Hot Sub, for $5.50 you can have a Hot Sub Sandwich with chips and a drink. 

So if you want a good meal for a great price, and you are in San Antonio you have to try Central Park Pizza of N.Y. at 136 Main Plaza in San Antonio. You won’t be disappointed.

San Antonio, A Great City to Visit!

The Rio San Antonio River Cruise

The Rio San Antonio River Cruise

just returned from a fantastic trip to San Antonio and the Alamo Bowl. I loved the City of San Antonio and its famous Riverwalk. The first thing you need to know if you are planning a trip to San Antonio is the San Antonio Airport is under construction and it is a bear to get around. The roadway in and out of the airport is all torn up and there are temporary entrances for all the terminals and the walk from the drop off point to the ticket counters is very long.

The City of San Antonio’s downtown district is always jumping. This is due to the Riverwalk that winds it’s way through the entire downtown area. You have to take the boat tour. The boats are run by the Rio San Antonio Cruise Company. The cost of the 30 minute river tour is $7.75 (cash only) and you can board at two different areas along the Riverwalk. Since we were there right before New Years, the Riverwalk was all lit up with thousands of Holiday Lights on all the trees lining the river. The lights come on at dusk. If you can take the river cruise right around 530PM, it is a beautiful ride.

The Alamo Dome was a great place to see a football game. We went to see our team, Northwestern University take on Missouri in the Alamo Bowl. It was a great game and we enjoyed cheering on our Wildcats. And even thou we didn’t will, we did cover the point spread, so in my book we won.
San Antonio gets two thumbs up from me!
