Huge King Kong Sundae Sugar Factory.

San Antonio may be known for its hot sauce and michelada, but the New York Sugar Factory is betting residents and visitors also taste the sweet stuff.

The celebrity-approved chain that specializes in milkshakes and glucose-packed foods has opened its much-anticipated spot at The Shops at Rivercenter, 849 E. Commerce St.


While the Sugar Factory’s fame is its Instagram-worthy dessert, the 7,900-square-foot River Walk also offers a full menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

The Sugar Factory is known as an “American brasserie,” according to the chain’s website. However, the food selection on the menu includes not only the French stew and crepes but the Asian-inspired French fries and pasta section.

An option that could be considered more “American” is the 24k gold burger, which is “dripping” in 24k gold leaf and served with gold-covered French fries.

Nothing says “America” ​​like overkill, after all.

Of course, if you’re visiting a place called the Sugar Factory, you’ll likely be looking to indulge in the calorie-packed treats this new restaurant has to offer in spades. Milkshakes – including the “crazy” kind, garnished with whole slices of cheesecake and seven layers of cookie s’mores – abound.

However, none of them cause cavities like King Kong Sundae. The mega dessert contains 24 scoops of ice cream, a full box of whipped cream, walnuts, muffins, sprinkles, M&M’s, four waffle cones, three unicorn lollipops, pastries and an array of candies. This concoction costs $99 and serves dozens of people.

Just watch your eyebrows, though. Sugar-filled ugliness is also adorned with lights.

The Sugar Factory menu also includes celebrity-developed wines such as 50 Cent’s Candy Shop, made with Branson Cognac, and Mario Lopez’s Monster Hurricane, which features Casa Mexico Silver Tequila.

The San Antonio’s Sugar Factory location features outdoor seating and a retail space of more than 50 types of candy, featured in the chain’s signature floor-to-ceiling display wall.

The restaurant is open from Monday to Thursday from 11 am to midnight, Friday and Saturday from 11 am to 1 am, and Sunday from 10 am to midnight.
