Sushi Express-San Antonio Restaurants

I stopped by this place for a quick bite before a workout next door, with zero expectations. I figured it would be kind of your standard strip mall sushi place, nothing special.I was wrong. This place was phenomenal. The sushi chef is a true… ||| Simply WonderfulSmall but very nice. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was very fresh and made to order.

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! And they are scrumptious – definitely try their chalupa burger, which is a… ||| I took my kids here after seeing it on the Zimmern List TV show. We very very happy with our experience here.

Mon Thai Bistro & Sushi-San Antonio Restaurants

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.

India Palace-San Antonio Restaurants

India Palace-San Antonio Restaurants

I’ve come to this place several times, and never leave disappointed. While it is obviously mostly Americanized Indian food, the flavor and richness are awesome. My favorite is the saag paneer, and the naan is on point. The biggest let down for me is the… ||| We have been to the restaurant several times over the years. Although the buffet does not change during the week, it is consistently good. Chicken tikka was excellent and the tandoori chicken was very good.Service was a little lacking – had to ask and…

Piccolo's Italian Restaurant-San Antonio Restaurants

Hour and a half for the main course to be served. Horrible horrible service. Rude owner. Stood at register for 10 minutes, finally started to walk out and someone came to the register. But, great food. Talked to a regular who said ƒ??I donƒ??t know,… ||| Piccolo’s is a family-owned and operated restaurant kinda off the beaten path. We like the small dining room (which can get full and busy) and the great food. We particularly like the Veal Parmigiana and the special house salad! Personal! Not corporate! Always meets our…

Three of us got the regular hot fudge sundae, and I chose the Muir Woods. The same great hot fudge sundae but with cherry vanilla ice cream. Each sundae was just…
