I have visited this location for dinner several times but this last visit was the first time I have ever ordered dessert. I ordered their dessert minis which are strawberry cheesecake, key lime pie, and chocolate trifle. I ordered one of each and thought they were very cute when the waitress brought them out. They were all lined up in shot glass like dishes with the spoon sticking straight out. For being so small they defiantly got your attention. The Cheesecake was probably my favorite, it was nice and creamy and had a wonderful flavor in the graham cracker crust and paired with the strawberries was very delicious. It was also a nice alternative to the traditional presentation of cheesecake. The key lime pie i didn't like so much though. The flavor of the key lime was pretty spot on it was just the crust that made the dessert not what it could have been. The crust tasted as if it could have been frozen and then thawed out or like a stale vanilla wafer cookie crumble. The chocolate trifle would have been my favorite since it was for sure made for a chocolate lover like myself but the mousse that was layered in between the cake was a one-note item. It had great texture but that was about all you got from it, it needed some added flavor like a liquor or a coffee or hazelnut or something to give it something special. The chocolate cake that was in it though was very good and my favorite part of that dessert it was light and moist and had just the right amount of chocolate flavor. One thing about the cheesecake and key lime that i didn't like was the whipped cream. It tasted like it came from a can and a bit oily it was not anything like a fresh whipped cream so that is one thing i would definitely change. I had a overall great experience and minus the few set backs in the desserts i did really enjoy them. I would just suggest a few alterations and then i would most defiantly order them again.

I haven't been in San Antonio in over 6 years and a buddy of mine agreed to try this place for dinner. When you walk in, the entire area looks like it has not been vacuumed in at least two days. The woman who seated us was rude and quickly told us that our waitress will be with us and walked off to talk to someone near the bar. We ordered the steak and wild mushroom flat bread, and boy was it flat. It fell apart when you tried to pick it up and the quality of the food was mediocre at best. Halfway through my coca-cola, I had the distinct pleasure of having something that was not ice go into my mouth. It looked like part of a nail, but I couldn't be sure. I got passed it and got another drink. This particular restaurant has an outside section to be able to view the RiverWalk and we witnessed over 25 pigeons, ranging from different sizes of height and weight having their way around two tables that had leftover food and plates from previous patrons who had left. It got so bad that another patron tried to get the pigeons to fly away. After 10 minutes of this and myself and others filing this, one of the waiters finally came out and tried to remove the plates. I ordered the New York 12 ounce steak and it was cooked very well. I didn't have any complaints regarding the steak, broccoli and potato. This is honestly not that bad of a place to eat, I will more than likely never eat there again just because of the issues I had when I went.
I ordered online. There were two people in line when I arrived. I walked up to the counter next to the sign for online orders (I'm supposed to be able to skip the line). Then, two more customers walked in. All of the walk-in customers were helped before I was. The employee who helped me did not make sure the other employees knew I was there. I waited 15 min. after I arrived and I already got there after the website said my food would be ready. The manager paid more attention to the fry guy who was already busting his behind than the guy at the counter not doing anything. Unacceptable.I've had a few experiences like this at this location.The food's always delicious. I just wish they would put the fries in a separate bag if they're just going to dump them in. I know it's a trademark thing, but I hate it.
I am born and raised in Chicago. I used to have to go home once a year to fill up on my favorite foods from there. After eating at this place I can have my favorites all the time. It is definitely a taste of Chicago!! I have not had a bad plate yet! The beef sandwich is better than back home, the Philly is to die for. The Gyro is a taste of heaven and well the Hot Dog is out of this world!! I even bought a few T Shirts!! The Wise Guys in there are awesome. LOVE IT!!! It is like being back home without the snow!!!
I went here for lunch with a large group.The restaurant looked very nice inside.I had a Bacon Swiss Burger. The burger was excellent; one of the best I’ve had in San Antonio.I did not care for the fries that came with it. They were very thin.The wait staff was very friendly and attentive.The prices are very high. Too high for me to go there more than once every few years. (If that even.)The burger was $12! Geesh.
We came for my birthday last night and got an unforgettable experience in exchange. We had an amazing server (King Julien) who made the night very special and very seriously deserves a raise for how well he took care of us. The food was delicious as well. My only complaint was the food was rather slow to arrive BUT they were incredibly busy so it's understandable.DEFINITELY COMING BACK!
Well good afternoon to my fellow Yelper's. I just had the pleasure of eating brunch at this Maddening Delicious Restaurant here in the King William District of San Antonio tx. The food here was absolutely amazing. The service was impeccable. Thank You to Joey, for the tour and allowing me to make a special waffle for my family and I. Keep up the good work.
We absolutely LOVE this place! Their food is amazing. My kids love the pizza and my wife and I can't get enough of their Spinach Pasta salad. We've ordered catering trays for some of our parties and our guests had nothing but rave reviews of our party food choices! Guillermo's is a must visit for native San Antonian's or just visiting from out of town.
I have been going here for 48 years and Old Joe (Phyliss' Dad) fed my mother and her friends back when his hamburgers were a nickel back in the 1940's. It is still the go to place for the very best (not the biggest) burger in all of Bexar County. Me and my entire family love Joe's and love that they have fed us for more than 4 generations and counting.
I went here for lunch on a weekday with a large group. Not crowded at all.The service was fine.I had the Shrimp “El Cocotte”. It was ok. No one in my group was particular excited about their experience. I didn’t dislike this restaurant but nothing really stood out and I believe it was overpriced for what we received.I probably will not go back.
