Help me plan a low-budget day trip to San Antonio this Friday.

For his birthday, I'd like to get the SO out of Austin. He's really interested in seeing the Alamo, so I want to plan a day in San Antonio. It's been many years since I've been to S.A., so I figured I'd get some MeFi input. The only thing that's really set in stone is seeing the Alamo, so any other suggestions are welcome.
Please keep in mind, we're on a very low budget.
I'm already considering seeing the Alamo movie at the IMAX. Also thinking about wandering the Riverwalk, though I'm not exactly married to the idea as Texas has been facing Heat Of Death this summer.
We are not opposed to a bit of driving, especially if it's scenic or leads to other historical spots. We are definitely NOT going to be doing any of the amusement/theme parks (Fiesta Texas, Six Flags, etc).
Suggestions of not-too-expensive places to eat are definitely welcome. BBQ and seafood are the first things to come to mind, but I'd like other ideas. He does NOT like Tex-Mex/Mexican.
We'll be leaving Austin some time after breakfast on Friday to spend the day in San Antonio. Please give us your favorite things to do/see/eat between here and there and/or once we arrive in San Antonio.
Thank you all for helping me make my SO's birthday memorable!
