San Antonio's Favorite Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives

Hey Have you forgotten some of SA's great places to Dine, because the're no longer a hip place to eat?

When was the last time you cruised the Bun n Barrel, or had Potato Skins at Good Time Charlie's...Pancakes at the Pig Stand.

What are some of your past favorites and what are your new hangouts.

San Antonio - Riverwalk area suggestions, please!

May I same something about the Riverwalk and Downtown...This Off season...Very light on tourist, this is the time regular San Antonians. The weather is cooler but not all that bad. Most Riverwalk locations have indoor dining. You will have the RW all to yourselves minus the locals that are down there.

Look at that RW guide I posted. and for places to eat, drinkl, and visit.

and even if many say Mi Tierr's is Touristy, is because its the best place to get a taste of Authentic Tex-Mex ...Lots of locals still eat there.

San Antonio's Best Margarita?

Its hard to gauge you...are you a Texan? would you be Happier on 6th street or a paino bar hanging with Arturo Fuentes ?...Ice House or Martini Bar? Bottle, can, or glass? Suit and tie or Flip-flops?

San Antonio

Mi Tierra's has tourists, but plenty of locals eat there because it is still autentic and it been a tradition before the tourists "found" it.

Mexican sweet bread snacks are worth a trip...Cabrito done up right, and SA style breakfasts...tacos,menudo, barbacoa, huevos rancheros...and the're open 24/7

you dont have to drive all over Texas for good BBQ, the river walk has County line BBQ. You would have to an old smokehouse out in the country to find better.
Also, its not just brisket that makes Southcentral Texas BBQ good, its the sausage, pork and chicken. and the sides. potato salad, beans, cole slaw, and you need...white bread, pickle chips and sliced onion. Pickled Jalepeno is optional.

Have lunch at County line, then go to Coopers, or Mc Bee's in New Braunfels...then you can compare.

look over the Riverwalks website to see whats in walking distance from you..

My $100.00 plate of Central Texas BBQ

With all due respect,

I dont understand the preoccupation with beef Brisket. I love it, I dont think this is a SouthCentral texas Thing. We cook everything down here. We have some of the best sausage around. Polish Wedding sausage from Poth, German style from the Hill country.
Chicken and all the fixins... A bar of white bread, pickle and onion slices are just as important as the smoke ring.

Potato salad or cole slaw, beans, spanish rice and a pickled Jalepeno...It seems like such a waste to focus an 1/4 lb. of beef as your BBQ experience.

San Antonio - 2 days/5 meals!

Have the Home brew Rootbeer when at Schilo's...save room for desert.
Please when having BBQ, order a combo plate with Beef(brisket), sausage and/or chicken
Southcentral Texas has some great sausage, sides are as important, tater salad, slaw, beans
I suggest the Short Rib platter at Los barios, long drive for 2 puffies and rice and beans...

San Antonio Ice Houses?

There used to be a place on Alamo called The Friendly spot back in the early 80's,,,its called La Tiendita now...

San Antonio Ice Houses?

La Tuna is a beer joint.

To be a Ice house, you had to have or still sell ice in bag or block out front.

An Ice house used to be a old style convience store where the old timers had a couple of cold ones in the back...

There is lots if beer joints that call themselves ice houses. Leon's Ice house and bait on Rigsby has turned into just a beer joint.

The last real ice house on the southeast side is the Texaco Station about 5 miles east on HWY 87 east. Its a gas station, they sell some grocery items and have tables for the old timers to drink a beer...they even sell pickled eggs and wieners. Im sorry I dont remember the name.

Lunch on the southeast side of San Antonio

Zorra,

I would not recogmen Bayseas...Its a fish market that cooks the fish there.
I would not suggest Nacho's either.

If you want to stay close to Gembler, the there Frijoles across the street from Radicks. Its a blue collar lunch place, but the food is Tex-Mex good.

Have you ever eaten a Bill Miller's BBQ, A local BBQ place with about 20 stores in the area. The BBQ is good for lunch...the have good sides and clean place for lunch.Its just south of Hwy 90 just to the south of Gembler on WW White.

Sanditas Mexican food is right across the street form Bill Millers...good tex-mex good breakfast and lunch.

The Fanciest restaurant on that side of town is the Dual "El Tipico and the Beef and Bourbon steak house...on rigsby and WW White, both restaurants are in the same newly renovated building.

I hope this helps

Texas BBQ

Please STOP talking about McBees and please Never mention their pit cooked beef Fajitas again...There are my secrete and I dont want them to meet the same fate as the Lockhart-Lulling pits. Let folks believe that BBQ only exsits north of IH-10 in south central Texas.

Southcentral texas offers great local ethinc sausages...German, Chech, and Polska.

Authentic Mexican and/or good hole in the wall restaurants in San Antonio?

casabels, Taco haven, El miridor, mi tierra and La Margarita are all close to Downtown in the South Town area... accessible by Via Trans or walking. Take public trans and walk in the day and taxi at night.

Right at the Corners of S.St Mary's , S. Presa St. and Alamo is more great restaurants...a great Itlian grill...La Foccacia's, right next door is Rosario's. This area is called South Town its right next to the King Willian District. There are also some new Bistros in the area and some new cool places for cocktails.

Authentic Mexican and/or good hole in the wall restaurants in San Antonio?

I would love to help steer you into a couple of directions, but could I ask what would be some of the types of dishes you are looking to try and what is your dining schedule?

Is this for a breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, or Late Night service? There are many good restaurants that keep different hours. Some restaurants do a fantastic breakfast and lunch service and are closed at 2:30 pm. Some resturant dont open till 11:00 am. Some do a great Late Night service, while others are open all day and some are 24 hours.

Christmas Tamales in Houston

maseca is corn flour, a too fine a grind for my liking. the 5# prepared corn masa is moist and the corn is a coarser grind...straight out of the bag, its great for tortillas. most folk I know add manteca and chilli paste for taste and color when making tamales.

The prepared masa is kept in the cool of the meat case at the supermarket. If you buy from a molino, I would guess thats as fresh masa as you can get.
