SA Food Trucks

We live really close to Boardwalk on Bulverde and love it. There are several outstanding trucks there (including Rickshaw stop...so good!), and the people there are super friendly. On Friday nights, they usually offer free beer (yes, really) which is nice. During football season, you can go and watch the games on a big screen. Its really nice.

Pierogis in San Antonio?

Does anyone know where I can get REAL, homemade pierogis in San Antonio? I'm living here for the next few years, and gosh....I really need some good polish food. My mom just visited from Pittsburgh and brought me a cooler packed with homemade pierogis, but alas...they will be gone soon. Any ideas? (I'm looking for something actually IN SA, not New Braunfels, etc.). Thanks!

NYC Hounds in DC!

I've been to many of these and they are so good. I'd put Thai Xing at the top of your list. Gosh, it's just so good and definitely one of the more unique places in DC.

chicken fried steak in texas

YES!!!! The Tejas Steakhouse has AMAZING food. Honestly--it's soo, soo good. My husband has ordered their CFS, and he polished it off without a second thought. Their gravy is so just so delicious, and the sides are also all great. We also take all of our out of town guests to the Rodeo. It's $10 to get in (cheaper for military), and it's such a fun night. Eat at the steakhouse (or heck, even the BBQ shack which is also good) then go see a real small town rodeo. Very fun, and although it seems like it, it's very un-touristy. It's mostly locals.

Green's Vegitarian in San Antonio... okay for a business group?

Why is Green your only option? I went there once and won't be back. My food was flavorless and dried out. How about Vegeria? It's a Vegan place that is near the airport, and their food is creative and delicious.

San Antonio Burgers

I'm with you, Sam Spade. People that are visiting from out of town want to try touristy type places, and I don't blame them. When we first moved here a year ago, we wanted to try all of those places too. (We loved them all, too!) It's taken us almost a whole year to find any restaurants that rival those in DC, where we moved from. I think you should cut the locals some slack. Many of them are transplants like us, and simply don't know where the "good" places are. Also, this isn't exactly the wealthiest city in the world. A lot of the places that the everyone on Chowhound considers "good" are pretty pricey for the average person (or Airman, as it were in SA).

San Antonio for 2 days- need help narrowing down options!

I second the suggestion for brunch at Monterey. It's true that Guenther House has no alcohol, but it's delicious food, and for all we know, you could not even drink. Just get to GH early--there are long lines. If you eat there, though, afterward you can walk over to the King William district and see some old houses. It's a relaxing walk, and there are even a few houses that are open for tours on some days.

San Antonio for 2 days- need help narrowing down options!

Mi Tierra is yummy, and yes, it's a touristy type place, but of course the person asking this question is....a tourist! I often take people here when they visit from out of town. The atmosphere is fun, and the bakery counter is spectacular.

San Antonio Burgers

The Cove has great burgers. Don't really care for Big'z, but then again...I think Chris Madrid's are pretty tasty :)

vegetarians on texas road trip...

No pork at all. It's tofu. Have you all never heard of Tofu bacon? I've never eaten it myself, but they do sell it at Central Market, etc. If you are a vegetarian, just check out the restaurant--their food is great. The description from their menu reads: Vegan BLT with our Tofu Bacon, Organic Spring Mix, Tomato and our Vegan Chipolte Mayo on Rustic Bread 9. Here's the website: http://thecove.us/index.php/Main/the-... Let me know if any of you give it a try!

I think you can find quite a few options. The Cove remains one of my favorite restaurants in SA. It's right near downtown. It's very un-fussy--they have burgers and fish tacos, and yes, some great veggie options. My vegetarian friends swear that their BLT is amazing. Haven't tried it, since I'm a carnivore and their regular burgers are pretty amazing. They also have live music literally every night of the week, great outdoor seating, and a great beer selection. It's good. I've been to Green, and wasn't impressed in the slightest. Then again, I went at brunch, so perhaps thats why? We recently tried a new vegan restaurant called Vegeria http://www.myvegeria.com/. It came highly recommended to us, and we weren't disappointed. In fact, we can't wait to go back...and that's saying a lot for two people that regularly consume cheese and meat :) Their specialty is vegan mexican fare, and it doesn't disappoint. Good luck!

Visiting Atlanta Hound looking for options near NW San Antonio, La Cantera, RIM

Go to The Cove. We moved here last June, and it's quickly become one of our favorite places to go. It's very dive-y, but the food is organic, local and very delicious. There is tons of outdoor seating, and a big bar with live music every night. It's a really fun place to hang out. The Monterrey downtown is also a favorite. Also great outdoor seating with a great vibe, and their menu changes daily. They are also very focused on local/organic. As for Dough, I really don't understand what the hype is. Everyone talks about it all the time, but I think it's just okay. Our first (and will be the last) trip there, our bill was $120, and we left hungry and unsatisfied.
