SAN ANTONIO - Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, the Southern food restaurant and retail boutique chain, will open a San Antonio location inside the Bass Pro Shops at the Rim Shopping Center this spring.

With just a handful of other locations nationwide, including in Dallas, Tennessee and South Carolina, San Antonio’s restaurant will be the first of its kind to open within a Bass Pro Shops.

The restaurant was first announced in November, but a location was not identified.
