SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The University of Kansas Men’s Basketball team is no stranger to playing in San Antonio.

Jayhawk fans are also not strangers to two restaurants and bars in the city which host KU basketball and football fans.

Sideliner’s Bar and Grill near the San Antonio Airport hosts KU fans for every KU football and basketball game.

While attendance varies for the football games, owner Magda Menchaca says up to 40 fans will gather at the bar Saturday for the national semifinal game against Villanova.

Closer to the games at the Alamodome, Rita’s on the Riverwalk has served KU fans each time the team has played in San Antonio – including when they won it all in 2008, in 2011 and now again this year.

If you need help getting into the KU spirit, Rita’s features a mariachi band that will play hits familiar to KU fans ears.
