I like HEB, and ordinarily have a positive shopping experience no matter which store I go to here in San Antonio Texas. Tonight at around 9pm, I shopped at the 5910 Babcock Rd location. It's not very busy then, and with checkouts had only a few people in line if that. I chose the nearest check out (#1), because it's sole customer's purchase was completed. There were no customers behind me. The person at the register rang the items up with out greeting or eye contact. Still, no one was in line behind me. As she was finishing the bagging up my $30 or so of purchase, she launched into a negative lecture on my lack courtesy to others (?) because I had gone a bit over the 10 item limit sign that I had missed seeing. Still there was no one behind me. This critical "dressing-down" continued for a while with pauses that seemed to invite an argument. When she finished speaking to me, I responded with my only statement: that if I had upset her that much, I would cancel the sale. Still there was no one behind me at that checkout. I then related the incident to the Manager on Duty and left without the groceries I had intended to buy. Still there was no one in that checkout. I am a 60 yr/old disabled veteran with sight and other impairments, but fortunately, courtesy and common sense are not on my list of problems. From my days in the army, I couldn't help but wonder how much of this situation was a training issue?
It all starts when you pull up to the parking lot you couldn't feel safer with all the SAPD, Marshal, and Sheriff cars in the front patrolling ,you won't find no fat guy on a scooter watching your ride here!!! And you are greeted by alot of nice folk waiting in the front enjoying there cold beverages and smoking a blunt filled with the finest tabacco to open the door for you. The inside is like a mini Vegas with there top of the line arcade card and poker machines and a gourmet fried chicken and BBQ resturant toward the back of the store you cant go wrong! They have awesome prices and if you come often they let you walk out with your items for free and pay later now that's service, they even have the best gas prices in town when they do have some they may be out of super sometimes but the service never is so come down and see for yourself, the only thing that gets shot out front of this corner store are music videos at times so bring the family and you be telling your friends that you been there before the Travel Channel was because we all know that after being on the Travel Channel it goes straight down hill from there so go while there still awesome,it will be the spot to get your milk and eggs for years to come I guarantee
I had ordered a bday cake for my step son and make a picture to put ontop. I explained very carefully what I needed and said if they couldnt print out the picture because it was a little dark to call me and I can choose something else. I never got the call. I went to pick up the cake and it was completely dark. Darker than the original picture. It almost looked like a big black square box taking up 95% of the cake. It was a Halo picture that I made myself to still be within copyright laws, and it had Halo on the bottom. On the top it was supposed to say "Happy Birthday (his name)" But instead it had happy birthday halo. Wasnt pleased argued with manager but he was sincerly apologetic and didnt charge me for the cake and gave me some ice cream. But, my pictures will always have that ugly cake in them so not sure if the free ice cream helped any. Kids were happy with the ice cream tho.
My family livea few minutes by this store. I love the location since its very close to home and a 1 stop shop. Heres my probem. My son and i were standing in check out and apperantly the young lady new my son from HS and she was not fond of my son. With that said she was not only RUDE to me but RUDE TO ME MULTIPLE TIME THAT I WENT THERE. I did complain to a JR manager who i hope spoke with this young lady about her attitude. This by the way still goes on even last week when i was there.I say these young ones need more training while checking out customers. just last week on Friday evening after work past 7pm it happened again with a new cashier.She kept trying to get her managers attention who promly came but just stood there acting like she was going to bag my items. I AM JUST OVER ALL SAD WITH THE WAY CERTAIN PEOPLE ACT!!! Jhasty
Best pharmacy around, for many reasons. 1. You really get a true, small town pharmacy feel. the owner/pharmacist knows you by name and show genuine care and concern. its not like the bigger name pharmacies that feel rushed and impersonal, its "your" pharmacy. 2. Fast, Fast, Fast. usually our medicine is ready by the time we drive there from the doctor (who is right down the road), or withing a few minutes. 3. Helpful. Its not just "here you are, take 2 a day", he makes sure you know what you are taking, why you need it, and how it works. Even for otc medicine, he will take the time to find them, explain them, and help you pick what is right for you. All in all, this pharmacy is a great addition to the area, and our go-to place for prescriptions, otc medicine, and quick groceries and snacks.
i would go to ali babas all the time to get my middle eastern groceries the owner was always nice and helpful........ until i had some cuff links on my shirt that said shalom he asked do you know what that says and i said yes after that the attitude changed . i admit i was saddened by this because i am an american first where the only color i recognize is red white and blue! he now avoids me like the plague! i really like to go here but i rarely do now i am sorry for what is happening in the middle east and when 911 happened i called to see if they were targeted at there store,because america IS about diversity. i do wish them the best because there store is a gem!
I enjoy having this grocery store at this very convenient location. Having one built somewhere near or on 211 (between 1604 and Castorville) would be wonderful .The annoys us is always having to bag our own groceries. We sometimes see supers, managers, associates, walking around when the cashier may be backed up and the customer has to step in and bag their own groceries. There are also times when the cashier is talking to another co-worker instead of concentrating on what they are doing or just making the customer feel comfortable by just being friendly. Honestly, bagging our own groceries is not very appealing to my husband at all.
I went here with friends from work during our lunch break. The staff is very friendly and appeared genuinely concerned that we enjoyed or visit. I liked the variety of hot dogs available and I especially liked the condiment bar and all the different types of mustards. There’s not a lot of seating inside but we got there early, 11:15, and there was no problem finding a place to sit. I’m not sure if they have a crowding problem or not. It was not crowded by the time we left. (11:45) My only complaint is the limited amount of parking.
Just had lunch at Kings Ct. and it was great! The price is right and the portions large. The fat boy weiner is truly huge! I had The Alamo dog and hand cut fries and it was very tasty. Another plus is that they have such a wide selection of toppings...and they don't charge extra for them. I was able to load up my dog with jalapenos, relish, onions and my choice of about 15 mustards, without incurring an additional charge. I will definitely be back to try out a few more dogs.
The car show used to be fun, antiques and classics. Now they have new cars, regular household vehicles. There is open beer drinking, loud music, cars burning out, trash all over the place, too many Chinese cars. The least they can do is clean up the area, rope off front area for the antiques and classics only, stop the beer drinking, enforce the rules they already have. The big over weight guard never does anything to keep the place clean, safe and fun.
