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.
I first went to the restaurant for lunch some time ago last summer with a co-worker that really loved the enchiladas here. Back then I didn't go for the enchiladas, which looked and smelled good, but instead I tried their chicken soup and the traditional puffy taco. One thing about puffy tacos is that they are very easy to mess up when making but if done right they can be a good eat. And they were. The dough they use was just right in consistency and suprisingly it did not come out soggy like other places. The chicken was juicy and very flavorful. The soup was also really good and I was told by the waiter that they make it daily and it typically runs out by lunch time. I went back to Janitzios this Sunday and luckily found a seat. The first impressive thing was the complimentary fruit bar that my kids loved. I am so happy that they serve the fruit because I dont have to worry about my kids only eating bean and cheese tacos for lunch. Now I can count on them enjoying the fruit. I did try then enchiladas and I must say they are about the best I have ever tried. The enchilada sauce has a rich meaty flavor with a hint of different spices that really come together good. We all had the enchilada plate (and I had my puffy taco) and we fell in love with the food. I highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a warm family environment and good food. The price is not to high which really helps out. Thank you all.
I just wanted to share this experience. A group of us from work decided to go out tonight and have fun and try something different we have been hearing about this new indian place in the Stone Oak area. So we decided to go. we arrived to this nicely decorated restaurant the service was very friendly we wanted to order from the Menu some of the guests have eaten indian food in NYC so we went with her recommendations. And let me tell you we were pleasantly surprised with the unique flavors and textures. We order as appetizers Shrimp Pakoras and Vegetable Samosas then they brought Garlic Naan and Spinach Naan. then we had mixed grilled tandoori is a delicious mouth watering combination of chicken, lamb, fish and shrimp grilled in their famous tandoor oven, apparently is some kind of clay oven where everything is cooked. Then we had the Seekh Kabab. Someone else order the Shrimp Masala some saag paneer bhindi masala and channa masala as vegetables. This night out was a wonderful experience I am glad we were adventurous and decided to go there. I am coming back and telling everyone to try this restaurant !
