This place was suggested during our summer road trip this year. My friends and I had such a good time there! The fried chicken was the best I've had in years! We also tried the salmon -- DE-lish. Great selection of food and fun and friendly atmosphere.

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.
UPDATED POSTING & CHANGE IN RATING:I revised my original rating of one star (based on my experience cited in the "Old Positing" below) to a five star for this location because management apparently pays attention to these reviews: (1) they cleaned house with new personnel and (2) training was apparently re-emphasized: The staff is extremely friendly at the window, orders are filled correctly; sauces are included, and the menu terminology confusion has been corrected. Great job top management in responding to your customers!_______________________________________________OLD POSTING:(1) This particular location on Wurzbach and IH-10 over the last 36 months has invariably filled our family orders incorrectly, and one time there was a huge puddle of pickle juice on top of one of our BBQ plate orders. (2) For breakfast, they always seem to forget hot sauce with the order. (3) One very frustrating issue is a lack of training for the window clerks. When ordering CHICKEN TENDERS as described on the drive-through menu, the fast food clerk ALWAYS refers to them as & STRIPS; this continuously frustrates our family, as well as a few of our friends who also dine there, for fear that our orders will once again be filled incorrectly. RETRAIN THE CLERKS OR CHANGE THE OUTSIDE MENU: ARE THEY CALLED STRIPS OR TENDERS?! Overall, this is surprisingly terrible customer service considering the long-time positive experience I have had with other locations. I recently noticed a change in personnel as of February 2011, so we'll see how things go. If it's not fixed, we're gone!
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.
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
Have used them for catering large company events with over 250 people spread out over two shifts. They have a number of things to pick from but the overall favorite is the Three Meat Plate, with potato salad, beans, bread, jalapenos, iced tea, and pies and cheesecake. We have had various celebration dinners, but our employees love them best of all. They love the taste of the food and they love how quickly they are served. I love their effeciency in serving, their courteousness, their willingness to meet our needs, and at this last event, the extra touches they made to make it the greatest catering event for our employees. Looking back, I can remember when looking for a caterer and seeing their name, I only thought they did hamburgers out on Austin Hwy. I took a chance went by, tasted the food, decided to use them, and our employees loved it so much I have kept using them and will continue to do so.
I used this company to take my mother to her appointments as she was bed confined. When I called I was greated warmly and was walked through the process and all my questions were answered....and I had a lot of them. I loved that I did not feel rushed nor pressured to make a decision. When the EMTs came to pick up my mother, they were very gentle and kind with her, unlike the company I had used in the past. They allowed me to ride in the front seat with my mother and to me, the ambulance could not have ran better. A couple days after the appointment they even called to see how she was doing!!! I was so blown away with the customer service! They made me feel like we were people and they were kind and caring! I will never use another ambulance comany in the future, Thank you so much for your help!
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'm in from LA and how can you be in Texas and not get some barbecue? The reviews I read on this chain elsewhere were mixed, but since it's right next door to my hotel, I tried it anyway. I got the rib plate with three sides. The first rib I had was absolutely great! Tender and wonderful and it put Los Angeles Bar-b-q to shame. The other ribs on the plate must have come from an earlier batch because they were dry and overcooked, and a little bacony tasting. Oh well. I still enjoyed that first rib, and would go back to give them another chance. The service was friendly and efficient, and the place clean and comfortable. The sides were good also. Give it a try if you're in the area, and be happy with good, but don't expect fantastic.
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 went here for lunch.I had the Wallet Watcher's Special with brisket, pinto beans and green beans and it came with a drink. It was reasonably priced at $5.59.The service was excellent. The food was served very quickly.I liked the all you can eat serve yourself pinto beans. The brisket was average. The BBQ sauce was good and they kept a bottle on the table which is awesome!The green beans were ok but I wished they were more like Bill Miller's.The sweet tea was excellent.Pickles and onions were serve yourself. Nice. The decorations are pretty cool.Overall it was very good. I plan on going back.
