I will be in san antonio next week staying at FT Sam Houston. I am looking for barbecued beef ribs. I have reviewed the message boards and plan on going to city market in luling. Do they carry beef ribs and are they worth trying? If not are there any other places I can try?

Does anyone have any comments on McBees in pleasonton?

thanks

Ft Lauderdale/Hollywood

first night, went to padrinos, I tried the skirt steak and my companions tried the lamb shank and tilapia. For dessert we had the key lime pie and sponge cake with 3 kinds of milk. I thought the skirt steak was very good. The sponge cake dessert was just ok. I saw empty plates all around but did not get specific comments from my friends. I will repost and add comments for the rest of the week.

china star in fairfax

went to china star this week. ordered takeout. I thought the general kwans spicy beef was good. I really liked the braised fish (hot!) and the lamb in sizzling pot was outstanding. I did not particularly care for the shredded chicken with leeks. The leeks were not leeks and some of the stems were hard and not edible. The mongolian beef was terrible - too sweet. I plan to go back again.

What have you had here that was good? They have an american and a szechuan menu. I usually order from the scechuan menu.
