Two museums. A cafe. A giftshop. A shooting gallery. And a whole lot of antlers. You’ll experience all that and more when you visit the Buckhorn Saloon!
In operation for over 131 years, the Buckhorn Saloon is located just two blocks from the Alamo. When it first opened, many travelers couldn’t afford much, so saloon owner Albert Friedrich began offering a trade — horns and antlers for a free beer or whiskey. Soon, the collection started to grow and add new curios to see, making it a San Antonio landmark for years to come.
More recently, the Texas Ranger Museum opened up in 2006, showcasing hundreds of historical items, along with Ranger Town, a recreation of San Antonio at the turn of the 20th century.
And you shouldn’t miss the bar and cafe, which serves traditional Texas brisket, ribs, and chicken, and seven locally-brewed beers!
