About Events with Schilo's
SCHILO'S is rich with history and started as a saloon in the early 1900s in Beeville, Texas. "Papa" Fritz Schilo moved the saloon and his family to San Antonio in 1914 and Mama Schilo started serving some of her recipes a few years later in 1917. Her timing was perfect - in 1920 prohibition hit America, closing all saloons. In 1942, Schilo's moved to its current location which was originally a currency exchange bank. In fact, the original bank vault is now a walk-in cooler. After three generations of Schilos, the Lyons family purchased the establishment in 1980 and has continued the proud German family-owned tradition of hard work, good cooking, and having fun. Now over 100 years old, Schilo's is the oldest operating restaurant in San Antonio.
