UTSA, UIW, NISD, Saint Mary’s, Trinity University, SAISD, (to name a few) and a lot of other schools are celebrating graduations in the coming weeks. It’s best to have a meal plan — no, not the college one — and get those reservations in ahead of the festivities.

While some restaurants already have their reservation slots completely filled, here’s four restaurants that our team recommends.

Lisa’s Mexican Restaurant, 815 Bandera Rd.
Party size: 15+
With multiple rooms to choose from, you can even bring the extended family to celebrate. For more pizazz, you can opt-in to have the room decorated with colored linens, candles, centerpieces, and other items (at an additional fee).

Biff Buzby’s Burgers, 12702 Toepperwein Rd. Suite #130
Party size: 35
Looking for more American fare? Take your party to “The Cockpit” at this burger joint for a private dining event.

Rosario’s, 722 S. Saint Mary’s St.
Party size: 30+
It’s always a fiesta at Rosario’s. You can choose from the “La Caliza,” a dining room perfect for intimate gatherings, or go all the way with reserving its rooftop terrace.

Albi’s Vite Italian Kitchen, multiple locations
Party size: 15-60
You can never go wrong with Italian food and with a dedicated event coordinator, a graduation celebration here is one you’ll never forget.
