San Antonio- Riverwalk

Actually there IS authentic 'que on the riverwalk. Stop in at County Line...all the food is cooked at one of their other spots. Real Pit Q

Absolute best burger in Texas?

2 M's has fallen far, far down on my burger bucket list. The restaurant is not too clean and the last beef patty from there (18 months ago?) was obviously NOT hand formed and was NOT 100 % all beef. Can anyone say bread crumbs? The last straw was the absence of a yummy crusty exterior...the meat was actually GREY. Sad, sad, sad. Used to be my fave. Great chocolate malts, tho.

Puff Tacos in San Antonio

When all is said and done, a great Puffy will be fresh from the frier, hot and chewy with a TINY bit of crisp on the edges. Try one from the PT lady in the middle of the Marcado on Sunday mornings. If you are staying downtown, just hop on a trolly. About 90 percent of them will deposit you there. Perfect SA street food and will require a modified Philly "stoop" to consume.

Need Houston dining recommendations

I consider anything Pappas to be a chain,,,as well as the Landry group of restaurants. Drive out to Fort Bend County for 'que at the Swinging Door.

Best Mexican in San Antonio?

Los Barrios...hands down. Sunday afternoon skirt steak plate that includes a cheese enchilada. Be sure to pick up a pint canning jar of the house chimichurri to take home. No preservatives so be sure to store in fridge.

Old fashioned in Dallas...

To answer your question OP....call the restaurant in question and ask for the recipe. Most 'home style' cooks are very generous people. If not my dirty little secret is a package of Pioneer gravy mix. Made in San Antonio and comes in several "flavors"...black pepper, sausage, plain. Try this...brown and drain your fave pan sausage (chop it up into little pieces as you cook it.) and add into the gravy prepared as directed. Serve over fresh, hot homemade biscuits.
