Finally, Costa Pacifica offers a great special for those that are in search for an all day happy hour on the Northside of San Antonio. The specials are available daily Monday thru Friday from 3 to 7 p.m. and the all day happy hour is on Monday and Tuesday. It features food specials for $5.99, wells, margaritas, and beer bottles for $2.99 along with a discount on premium spirits and shots. Up your house margarita to a flavored one for an extra dollar.
The northside eatery was opened by owner Moris Saide in 2014. Boasting “serious Mexican-style seafood” it is the embodiment of his childhood memories of growing up on the coast of Mexico.
When entering the establishment, you walk right into the bar area. You can either seat yourself or wait for a server to come and escort you to a table. It doesn’t matter which you choose, as the happy hour specials are available throughout the joint and, save for the group of mompreneurs and PTA higher-ups, the seating is ample.
While you wont be greeted with a big grin and a loud “Welcome!” at the door, the service at Costa Pacifica is decent. The servers know the menu well, they are kind, and they know how to give a table and a patron space. The menu has a wide variety, featuring different dishes focusing on fish and ceviches, with nachos for the non-adventurous types.
The drink menu only consists of bottled beers, wells, and frozen margaritas, but they are decently priced. If you are interested in spending more you may peruse the drink menu that contains a couple of craftier cocktails that are not a part of the all day happy hour.
Costa Pacifica offers a cheap alternative to the pricey Stone Oak area. It’s a great place to pull over and kill an hour while waiting for traffic on 1604 to die down, or to just meet a big group for a quick bite.
