As seems to be the theme with many of the restaurants in SA and in Texas, bigger is better. The portions weigh in on the heavy side and the prices are pretty good. On a hungry day, I would shoot for the 1/2 pound cheeseburger with added avocado and a small side of tater tots (which can be shared by two people), though the 1/4 pound would do just fine. And if you are feeling really daring, or just have the need to share, you can shoot for the full pound. I was never that insane. Other items such as the salads, hot dogs, and chicken sandwiches match the goodness found in their burgers and fries. The drinks also match the size of the meal. Also, definitely try out the armadillo eggs as an appetizer...these are tortilla chips with jalapenos covered with two cheeses on top. Beyond the food, this place has a genuine Texas country feel. When you walk in, you feel like you are definitely hitting a country dive, but this is a location frequented by all sorts and is one place that you shouldn't miss! Parking is pretty slim in front of the place, so look for some spots right across the street.

Bud Jones is the best! Their fish is great, and so is everything else they fry. They serve chicken fried steak that's the size of the plate, and chicken tenders with gravy that are to die for! The fried shrimp is also excellent. The fish can occasionally be in the thin side, but it's still delicious. The prices are pretty fair, and the hostess' are very friendly. They'll chat with you and play with the little kids that come in. The atmosphere is a nautical theme with many fish, crabs, nets, and wood decorations on the walls. You can choose to sit in a booth which is pretty large and great for privacy while you're eating. Bud Jones has a lot of history in San Antonio, and I would (and do) recommend this restaurant.
GREAT HOMESTYLE COOKING. NEVER A DISAPOINMENT. I'VE BEEN EATING THERE FOR 30+ YEARS AND IT IS ALWAYS GOOD FOOD. THE WAITSTAFF IS ALWAYS CURTIOUS. THE LUNCH SPECIALS ARE DELICIOUS AND FILLING. THE PRICES ARE VERY REASONABLE AND THE PORTIONS ARE GENEROUS. YOU WON'T REGRET DINING THERE.
