Great food & wide selection at the lunch buffet. Our office comes here several times a year for special occasions like farewell or birthday luncheons. I never heard anyone complain. And very reasonably priced.
This is one of the best place to eat, have an anniversary dinner, birthday party, or a meeting with family, friends or some one you want to impress. The food is hot, varied, delicious, and FRESH. I have always wondered why a lifetime card was not made available. if there were a 500 dollar gift…

I have no idea what people are complaining about. Every single restaurant in the world, sometimes orders are mixed up. Yet, nobody talks about when they get good service so I will start:\r \r I used to work at Rackspace from 07 to 08 and not once did they have a problem w/my order. I love thei…
Saltgrass is one of our favorite places to eat, at least at the other locations in town. The Saltgrass restaurant on the riverwalk needs to work on their service and employee attitudes. The food is still spectacular though.

when my husband and i were trying to find a place to eat for our last night in san antonio on our getaway, we had it narrowed down to two places: the iron cactus and ritas. we just knew we wanted margaritas and mexican food. we wanted them to be good but at just before 7:00, we didn't think we would have to worry about making our plans right before 10 pm. HAHA were we wrong. ANYWAYS, after reading reviews on another website, we chose here because rita's had "horrible service and margaritas". did someone get them mixed up?! they are kind of close to each other. our waiter was ok- at first. i have been waiting tables for 6 years and bartending for 4 of them. when a waiter is nervous or has a bad night, i can tell, but i am sympathetic. but what i am NOT sympathetic to is being ignored or lied to. my husband asked what the difference between the margarita and the mexican martini size/price and our waiter told us it was DOUBLE THE SIZE... well for only 3 dollars more, it just made sense(from what he told us, DOUBLE THE SIZE, right?!?!?) so my husband ordered it and i a strawberry margarita, regular size. about 20 minutes later after our waiter had checked on his other tables several times without asking us if we were ready to order, we get our margaritas and they are NOT at all what they should be. my "strawberry" margarita was a house margarita with a tiny bit of strawberry swirled around the glass... i should have just gotten a house i guess. my husband's margarita was in a glass 2 oz. bigger than mine(we have them at the place i work) and since my margarita wasn't an ounce big... it was NOT twice the size. totally disappointed. it tasted good though. after 2 hours waiting for our food it took another 40 minutes waiting for our check(other tables of fernando's had the same problem), we contemplated asking for our bill several times(for the drinks, before the food came out), and right before we did it our food came out. it was lukewarm, my husband's fajitas were not sizzling and my queso was cold. by now it was 9:10 and we were so mad we just wanted to leave. we finally got to leave iron cactus at 9:40.. an almost THREE HOUR dining NIGHTMARE... at least the food could have been hot. i would have complained to the manager that night but it seems that a bunch of people beat me too it. we really had to make it to our other obligations, luckily we did. i knew that harassing a manager wouldn't make me feel better but maybe warning other people would...
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.
Across from the Hotel Valencia this little deli exceeded my expectations. We were waiting for the valet and I spied this deli across the street. I asked the girl at the counter for something quick and delicious. She suggested the Unforgettable Druthers (turkey, cream cheese, bacon, sprouts, tomato, and avocado) and Kenny's Klub (turkey, bacon, onion, tomato) sandwiches. When I got in the car my boyfriend and I split the Unforgettable Druthers first. Who knew sprouts could be so good. Later on we shared the Klub and that was amazingly good too. All I have to say that I am glad the valet took forever with our car. If he hadn't we might have never had the pleasure of eating here. Love the food, will be back next time I am in town. I can't wait to try those sandwiches from the grill! :)
My brother and his wife went to for their Anniversary a few days ago and I was looking to take my wife for her Birthday Meson was recommended we choose to give it a try and we're happy we did. The food, ambiance, service and the staff were great. We have the le, escargo as appetizer, the house salad (Organic spring mix) Service with the French vinaigrette, my wife had the Lamb and I had the grilled New York cut of beef served with the bernaise sauce, a bottle of Little Black Dress wine which was very good for $21.00 I spoke with the owner who is from Dominican Republic and he said that they moved from the Zavala where they open on 1995 now they have being in the new location since 2008.Any way we enjoy everything there and will be back and tell every badge we know to give a try.
Now When we want a nice diner or lunch we go to Meson. The food is very very good we was there a few days ago for diner and to day we went for lunch We ordered the Ceasar Salad for two prepared table side and their lunch day special which was crab meat sauteed with a reduction of batter and wine with a hint of east indian spices, friend order the grilled salmon which was fresh and juicy, the Ice Tea and lemonade was the best we ever have, we complement the waiter and he said they use Kangen Water to make their tea, coffee and their thing in the restaurant. They have a full bar with very large wine list at very good price and private room for meeting. The place is beautiful and the people are nice. We recommend
I have lived in San Antonio for 15 years, I moved here from New York and could never find a pizza I liked they all tasted just like Pizza Hut. I recently ate at the new pizza place off University Heights and could not have been happier there pizzas where made with fresh ingredients. The pizzas where thin and crispy and full of flavor they had fresh pieces of tomatoe on all of there pizzas and it added so much more flavor. I would recomend this place to anyone who enjoys new york style pizza its not greasy and has a very fresh taste. Not only is the pizza outstanding they have a full bar and happy hour. Deffinantly go try this place!!!
We've had great food here in the past. Margaritas and salsas are still fantastic, but I had the most disappointing beef fajitas tonight - sliced with the grain rather than across, so basically long strips of gristle. Unfortunately I did not have opportunity to speak with the manager - hopefully just a training issue in the back. Table service was also inattentative, had to flag down the waiter for our tab after a long wait with no food or drinks on the table. Understood that this is a restaurant located in a tourist area - all the more reason to keep your game up.
You have got to try this place. The ambience is homey...the food is FANTASTIC! The grilled chicken sub is supremo. This place has more than just pizza...it has lasagne, spaghetti, subs. I'll put it this way, when my 9-year-old son took a bite of the chicken sub, he said, "Bada-Bing!" Locally owned and operated by Flo. She's the best and she has always made sure we are well satisfied. Prices are very economical especially for the absolute best flavor anywhere. We are so glad we heard about it on the radio and gave it a try. What a find!
BEST PLACE TO EAT IN THIS AREA THE CUSTOMER SERVICE ROCKS, AND THE FOOD IS GREAT !!!!!!!!!! DON'T PASS THIS PLACE UP YOUR YOU WILL MISS A CHANCE TO EAT GREAT FOOD AND ENJOY THE RESTAURANT THE DECOR IS VERY RELAXING.RECOMMEND TO GO FOR DRINKS AT THE END OF THE DAY THEY HAVE A BAR TOO. SERVICE IS FAST AND GREAT IF YOU HAVE BEEN GOING TO RUTHIES DOWN THE STREET SKIP IT AND GO TO WEST AVE ONCE YOU BEEN HERE YOU WILL NOT GO ANY PLACE OTHER THEN HERE THEY HAVE EVERYONE BEAT HANDS DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!......:O)
The hotel was beautiful but check in time was supposed to be at 4pm and we got there at 3:30 just to be told or room was not ready and it would be at least an hour. Or only other option was to downgrade from out king size suite to a double bed one. A butler there told us they always had this problem and there was a long line of people complaining about the same issue. No one apologized for our inconvenience of having to wait at the bar tired after a long drive. Not sure if I will return again.
