I am not sure if many places...especially of the fast food sorts...would fit the bill for a 5-star rating. Still, Podna's Catfish and Po'Boys was an easy choice for a top rating. Having spent 6 months living in San Antonio, this place became one of my favorites. Although it is a place that could be easily overlooked on Austin Highway, and generally would not be fit for a 30 minute lunch if you work downtown, I found as many opportunities to go back as my co-workers would allow. The food in general is really good, but of course, you should shoot for the po'boys. My favorite was the 12" 1/2 fried oyster, 1/2 fried shrimp. Whatever you choose, it is overflowing with meat, the roll that it comes in is fresh and the sauce that you can add on your own is great. The fries weren't necessarily my favorite, but they are still really tasty and not overly fried or salty. This is a pretty basic restaurant, and watch out for the high noon lunches, as it might be difficult to find a table. But the staff is really nice and the owner, who willingly shares about his visit to New Orleans which led to the start of his business, is definitely a friendly character. Although I was never that rushed, they even have a drive-through, and I have heard that you can call in orders and have them cater. Now, I am off to new eating adventures in Dallas, TX as a next step in my own professional pursuits, but Podna's will definitely be on my list when I take my next trip to SA.
This was my first time eating at LHSH and i'd like to remind servers that 1st impressions are key! The food on the menu all looked delicious,the host asked if we were ready to order our drinks before we even sat down, my hubby looked at me and said uh, no. She gave us our menus, and said i'll be back, a couple minutes later, while taking in all the menu options they had she came back and asked what we'd like to drink, while i was waiting on my husband to answer, i was looking at the entree's, she actually flipped my menu over and said the drinks are back here and pointed to the menu, i said ok, and decided on a raspberry tea, which was tasty. Then she asked for our order, again i was waiting on my hubby to order while I was still not sure of what i wanted, i just gave in to the Black and Blue Burger, which was excellent! I love Blue Cheese! But after our food got to the table the check was already placed on our table too! Then after eating half my hamburger, the waitress refilled my tea, then asked if i wanted a to go box, i said no, thank you, she then left and came back with a box and said here you go, just incase you need it, how considerate! NOT! Just made me feel really rushed, and it was after lunch time, with hardly any customers! I may try it again at a different time of day, or I may try another location.
My husband and I just returned from Bohanan's where we spent our 8 year anniversary. WOW! Truly awesome dining experience. The concierge was very friendly and made you feel welcome right after you step off of the elevator. The restaurant was "business casual" attire, but was still very comfortable, even for me (I'm a jeans and t-shirt kind of person). The menu had many options and the prices were very reasonable, especially for such a great atmosphere. My husband ordered the red snapper and wild rice. The snapper practically melted in your mouth. Unfortunately, the wild rice was a bit "too wild" for my husband's taste. It tasted pretty good, but the texture was too weird to overcome. As for myself, I ordered the jumbo shrimp and potatoes augratin. When they say "jumbo", they really mean it. I have to say that I was amazed at how wonderful the shimp was. Right amount of breading, amazing flavor.. pure perfection. The potatoes augratin was pretty good, too. The only problem is that my stomach wasn't big enough to finish it all. If you go, I would reccomend "Mo" and "Daniel". Daniel is a bit quiet, but Mo is great! I definitely reccomend Bohanan's. It's my husband and I's new favorite get away in San Antonio.
