I've been a customer for over five years and have ordered the same thing every time: meat lasagna (the house salad dressing by the way is also a "killer"). Most importantly, the staff managing the drive-thru window is extremely courteous and fast. It's a great experience all the way …

Pizza Hut is just good. It is more expensive, but sometimes it is worth the extra price. This Pizza Hut is close to my house, and I have not had any bad experiences with them. I usually pick up pizza to avoid delivery costs. Delivery times can run high on weekends or during Spurs games.

Worst pizza and service. We waited for 1 pizza, wings and chef salad to be delivered for 1 1/2 hours. Finally came, forgot chef salad. Called the place. Was told they will get someone to deliver it. Waited again and they never delivered the salad. Pizza was delivered cold. Hardly no sauce in piz…

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...
First off to those who appreciate hard work and dedication we truely appreciate your business. For those who have nothing good to say about our restaurant we apologize for either giving you poor service or poor quality food,however if you choose to hide behind the internet and are not adult enough to address the problem while at our establishment then shame on you.I guess it is not easy to speak up and say what you feel because you are either afraid or have no backbone. I will have you know that in my eight years in business I have tried very hard to please as many people as I can,But I have come to the realization that people love to bring good people down and that you just can't please everyone. Everyday we open up and try the best that we can to deliver a fresh product. We make all our products fresh daily from our sauces to our dough,but we are far from perfect as some of these lovely customers love to point out. But I challange them to try and serve the public! As for my guy with the tatoos he is loyal and honest and has never had a problem with the law he just likes body art.If you have a problem with him please speak up I know he can be tough and to the point but please understand we sometimes deal with very rude people,and it's just not easy to sit everyone at the same time because of the big parties we attract.So we apologize for any inconvenience.AS FOR THE LADY THAT HAS SLAMMED ME ON EVERY SITE POSSIBLE PLEASE COME IN AND I WILL REFUND YOUR MEASELY $8.00,BUT SO YOU KNOW A PIZZA CAN TAKE TIME TO BAKE, WE ONLY TOOK 20 MIN. TOTAL FOR YOUR COMPLETE ORDER,PLEASE TRY HARD TO TELL THE TRUTH, THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY , YOU AREN'T PRESENTING ALL THE FACTS.
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 think Paul's Pizza Roma is the best Pizza in San Antonio. They have 2 locations. The one listed here and another on the NW side off of Fredricksburg and Callaghan. I have tried just about everything off of the menu and it's just great that they use fresh ingredients. I don't like to eat pizza cold but Paul's Pizza is one pizza you don't mind eating cold. They also have a great flatbread sandwich called the Gyro-YUMMY!. Dolmos is a cool greek snack and you have to try to Garlic Knots! Let them know Miko recommended you. Yes I order thtat much ^_^ This is one local pizzeria that you will love ordering and getting delivery from. You can order as late as 11:30 pm from both locations for delivery. They also have a chinese restaurant now called Sun Suns that allow you to order as late as 9pm or 9:30pm. The chinese food is great and the servings are large enough for at least 2 people and possibly more. Vegetarians will be happy with the large variety of healthy choices. There is Pauls orginal pizza, the gyro, pasta, salads, even soup of a day. The deserts are great too. Try to eat the Pecan Ice Cream Ball in one sitting. I doubt you can, lol.
The only down fall of this place is the front counter order taker (girl w/glasses - dirty blonde). She is rude and doesn't take the time to listen to the customer. Yet again she got my order wrong and while waiting for my food I notice two other customers with the same problem. This girl is too busy talking w/her co-workers instead of listening to the customer. Congrats on winning the Blue Plate award and having 3 perfect scores in a row, but what good is all that when your front line person (girl w/glasses) can't get the order right. Yeah, the food takes awhile to get to the table, but it's not frozen and heated up it is fresh, hot and YUMO...The wait staff is the greatest, friendly, kind and really down to earth folks. Sam (young small girl), Lisa (older freindly lady) and Art (somehow realated to Big Lou) are the best and kindest wait staff I have ever encounted. They along w/the great food keeps me coming back and I tell everyone who will listen how great it is there. If only the front counter person could be placed in the kitchen away from customers this place would be more than exceptional.
We where getting tired all those same-old Pizza food chains & find it a little hard to get food that actually taste good & good service that should go along with it. So I took my family to this new place "MAAR's Pizza & More" that just opened. Not knowing what to expect, we ordered Pizza, Wings, Fried Pickles & Drinks. This was *THE BEST* fresh, home made food my family & I have had in a VERY LONG TIME. Though it was very busy, (-:a+good+sign:-) the whole staff @ MAAR's Pizza & More where very amiable & went out of there way to accommodate everyone. I also love the fact that the owners where on the floor helping. To me that shows they really do care about there staff & guest. When it was time for us to go, our waitress brought the bill. We where astound to see for all that good food (& much left to take home) our bill was actually much less than expected. I live across town but I need to say that "MAAR's Pizza & More is by far the best & well worth the drive. I'll be going back next weekend for more...
We ordered a pizza from this Pizzeria and they were more than willing to deliver it... The pricing was good and reasonable for what we received. For the first time to ever order from them was a great experience. I do not know how it is actually there because we have never been in there to order or pick up a pizza. The pizza itself was also very good.. Freshly made and delivered hot. The dough on the pizza was excellent and more like a bread. The only downside we had with this place was they charge a $1.00 to run a cc. That was really the only problem we had with them but for a small business like this it was great. The delivery driver that brought the pizza was very friendly to us all... Also unlike most pizza businesses that are sort of stingy on the peppers and cheeses, they were not. They gave us plenty. Even others coming in to our office were wanting to know where we got pizza from because it smelled so good and said that it looked good.
I have no clue where to begin! From the moment my family and I walked in t the moment my family and I left we were greeted with nothing but absolutely amazing service. The owners took it upon themselves to greet each table individually and put forth effort to build bonds with the customers. For as long as MAARS stays open I will be a frequent attendant! The food was not terribly greasy. The employees were neat and got the food out in a timly manner. I was never greeted with a tone of rudeness. The main focus of this restaurant is FAMILY and I believe this is the first restaurant that has been able to meet the expectations of a family oriented restaurant. Compared to the ownership before the restaurant is much cleaner and I am not concerned about contaminents in the food or environment. Overall amazing experience and that is just an understatement. Words cannot justify what my family and I felt! Amazing restaurant
Was my 2nd time ordering from Jimmy's. 1st time was great. 2nd time I must say wasn not. 1st my address wasn't listed in the system so I couldn't have it delivered. That's ok, bcuz the pizza's worth it. So I drove out of my way to pick up. The cashier was very slow and got my order wrong 3x. But still nice. When I finally got my pizza, I had to wait 10mins for 2salads which by that time, my pizza box was getting cold. Then after getting my salads, they forgot my soda. Before I could let the cashier know, she answered the phone to take another order. So I waited again another couple mins, not wanting to be rude. So sad to say by the time I got home my pizza was very cold, and not so tasty having to warm it back up in the microwave. I would just suggest more help or more training at the front counter.
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! :)
