I had gone to the website for the San Antonio deal of the day. My husband and I just moved to San Antonio from Florida 2 weeks ago. We wanted some down home Southern style cooking. This place did not disappoint.
Fist I would like to say a very special thank you to the manager there named Mark who went above and beyond being helpful -I couldnt get the coupon for the deal of the to print and I was on the way to to church we planned on eating at Black Eye Pea afterwards. My mother called the restaurant ( being the helpful person she is ) and asked the manager if she could print and then fax it to the restaurant -Mark the manager there asked her to email to him and he would personally print it out and then when we got there all we had to do was ask for him. He was polite and attentive as was our waitress Margaret and they treated us like royalty.
The food was fit for a king and queen we had fried guacamole for an appetizer it was delightful ! My husband ordered the chicken fried chicken and mashed potatoes and black eyed peas and he really enjoyed it. He was born and raised in the South and doesnt normally like black eyed peas anywhere but home.
I had the steak dinner the steak was seasoned nicely and tasted awesome and the squash casserole was excellent. The sweet tea was very tasty and wasn't really bitter or too sweet. My husband ordered the strawberry lemonade and loved it. We took our desserts to go.We were too full to eat them and I had almost half my meal leftover and took a doggie bag home. I got the bannana pudding and it was deliicious. This place gets a big thumbs up from me and my husband. Thanks for welcoming us to San Antonio with a smile and some awesome food.
