Not much has changed around this famous Texas landmark since the day William Specht began entertaining the locals over 100 years ago! It’s the same authentic experience you’ve grown up with and can count on when it’s time to gather for a celebration, dinner, or just to meet with friends. You can’t buy dry goods here anymore, but the people are still genuine.
Founded in 1890, Spechts Texas has been the premier restaurant, bar, and grill in San Antonio, TX, that generations of family and friends have enjoyed for good times, great food, and an authentic Texas atmosphere. Stop by today and see why folks from around Texas and the rest of the nation and world have been making Spechts Texas a destination for well over a century!
