San Antonio’s restaurants, coffee shops, clubs, and bars have faced the coronavirus challenge by reopening with safety protocols including social distancing measures. Following Gov. Greg Abbott’s “Open Texas” orders, some have reopened their dining rooms at limited capacity, while the recent spike in coronavirus cases has caused some to shut back down.
To deal with ongoing uncertainty, many continue to offer online ordering, curbside pickup, and delivery services.
