This urban wine inspired restaurant is located in the heart of San Antonio just 5 miles north of the River walk, and minutes south of the airport. Highway 29 that runs through Napa Valley inspired the restaurant’s name. The oversized patio with water fountain creates the perfect atmosphere to enjoy wine and appetizers or a four-course dinner. The bar and lounge area offers a trendy, stylish, urban setting for serious wine drinkers to sit back and enjoy a “Road Trip”. All road trips arrive with “wine itineraries” (tasting notes) for the “traveler” to refer to as they are sipping each glass. We specialize in wine country cuisine; Executive Chef Stefan Bowers has created an eclectic menu & makes seasonal changes to showcase fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.
29 Brix is no longer open. It has been recast as an upscale Mexican cantina.

Ácenar is not Mi Tierra with a snazzier paint job. With the exception of some slick color photos of nibbled galletas, paletas, and dulces - and maybe the noise level - there's not much at all in the highly charged interior that suggests Tex-Mex, classic or contemporary. In fact, the clever use of a molcajete grid on the patio takes us back to a much earlier era.
The same might be said for the menu: It's divided into San Antonio Tex-Mex Favorites and Ácenar Specialties, and it's not clear at first glance whether the SA favorites are alleged to be updated, or if all the tweaking took place in the specialties section. An appetizer such as the house-smoked salmon nachos with discrete black beans and dill crema looks much like the classic cosa, but the taste is altogether otra. And it works, despite the rarity of both dill and smoked salmon in any Mexican kitchen, traditional or Tex. - Ron Bechtol
Achiote's pan-Latino menu promises more than it delivers, but the roast pork with yellow rice is succulent and the homey rice pudding satisfying. Terrace seating on the River Walk is pleasant. -- Ron Bechtol (08/08)
Award-winning Mediterranean-Lebanese-American franchise offering falaffel, fresh soups daily, hummos, baba, salads, shiskebobs, rolled pitas, large selection of vegetarian menu.
Aldaco's Stone Oak outpost remains true to its downtown roots with fresh, flavorful Mex and signature treats, including the avocado margarita and pastel tres leches. -- Ron Bechtol (02/09)
Well, OK. It's a strip club. But it does have a damn tasty buffet.
Beautiful garden setting with peacocks and Asain phesants roaming the grounds. Diverse menu apealing to all tastes with an array of desserts and specialty drinks.
