Best dive bars in San Antonio

Dive bars can be polarizing: Either you love their particular brand of cheap, grimy fun or you hate it. While the flickering neon signs, $2 shots, and off-key karaoke strike some patrons as endearing, the allure is totally lost on others.

If grizzled patrons, faded pool tables, and tallboys of beer are your thing, you’re going to want to check out the 10 gin mills on this list. Stacker used data from Foursquare to rank 10 of the top dive bars in San Antonio, Texas. Foursquare’s algorithm takes check-ins, rating signals, category matches, tips, and photo trends into account to come up with the best hole-in-the-wall pubs. Click through the list to see the best dives San Antonio has to offer—and find out whether your favorite spot made the list.
