Brenda's Burgers-San Antonio Restaurants

When we first moved to San Antonio back in 1988 my dad would come home with Brenda’s Burgers. They use to be located off of Marbach Rd and Military. That is the location my dad would get our burgers and fries from. Their burgers are… ||| In my opinion, an average burger joint. The food was fine but service was slow, even at the end of the “lunch hour”.To be honest, I felt the burger was comparable to What-a-Burger. I got the Special burger, which is essentially the What-a-Burger jalapeno…

Shake Shack-San Antonio Restaurants

My first visit to Shack Shake was both good and bad. The good part was the hamburger had really good flavor, but it was a very small Burger. The hot dog was served cold. I did like the french fries they served but I don’t… ||| I have been to locations in NYC and CT and this was my first trip to SA location.

This was our second timing dining here and will be the last. The products are great in the gift shop but the ladies are not. Shopped here on Saturday after Black Friday and asked about the Black Friday deals offered on FB (30% off I… ||| While visiting San Antonio we were told the Guenther House was a great place to eat.

Cheddar's Scratch Kitchen-San Antonio Restaurants

After being up all night, then flying in to San Antonio, I was hungry as soon as I arrived. I was in the parking lot when they opened.

Big'Z Burger Joint-San Antonio Restaurants

Went to Big’Z Burgers and grabbed dinner with the kids and some friends and their kids. Big’Z serves huge burgers – I initially mistook the kids’ burgers for my wife’s and mine!

Mon Thai Bistro & Sushi-San Antonio Restaurants

My brother and I decided it was time for Thai food. Having seen Mon Thai for many years we decided to give it a try. For an appetizer I selected calamari. It was tender, but larger cuts than I prefer. No tentacles – just the… ||| This spot is tucked away in a shady complex off Broadway in Alamo Heights. Outdoor dining is available, but it was too hot to enjoy it during our last visit. The owner is charming and friendly, but the vast menu doesn’t deliver on its promises….

This is the breakfast place at the Marriott Riverwalk in SA. I ate there during a stay, it was part of my elite package and I could upgrade and get the omelette bar for $5 a person, which I did. There are sparse offerings on… ||| We wife and I are staying in the Marriott Riverwalk where the cafe is located. We ate breakfast, had room service dinner and a room service breakfast.

Bowl and Barrel-San Antonio Restaurants

Bowl and Barrel-San Antonio Restaurants

Neat place. It’s not your typically bowling alley. Decor is nice. Staff was average. Server was excellent. It’s probably best suited for adult group outings though I bowled with 2 kids and it was fun. Drink specials are not really specials because they just give… ||| I went for a get together with some friends. I was not impressed. It was loud, the lanes used strings on the pins (More on that later), the people at the front did not pay attention to anyone by themselves, and there were pillars that…

Oscar’s Taco House-San Antonio Restaurants

Went to Oscars for lunch with my wife and we had a horrible experience. The server was polite and attentive too bad the food was subpar! My wife had the puffy tacos amd i had a burger with onion rings. The tacos were cold and… ||| I have visited this small restaurant for years. I am so grateful that the super yummy puffy tacos have not changed. Don’t expect a new and fancy restaurant because you won’t find it here. What you will find is wonderful Mexican food!! I am Hispanic…
