Not only was the barbecue terrific but the service was excellent. First timers and tried the classic brisket plate, avocado grilled cheese and sausage and needless to say I was impressed. Just as good as you saw on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives if not better in reality! Anyone who is a fan of tender brisket, sandwiches or both should d ... read more

The place is definitely for those who are searching for little hidden gems in the city of San Antonio. This place is without a doubt for those who seek the classic diner experience, even if the place looks slightly aged. (adds to the nostalgia factor in my opinion) I will definitely come back when I have the time to return here.

Got the brisket grill cheese, super tender highly recommended.

I give it 5 stars for nostalgia. It's a shell of what it once was...but it survives and I am happy for it. It has decent food. The prices are a little high for the venue, but it has kept a lot of the feel that it had 40 years ago. They have some pretty cool events and I like going there, if only to experience the joys of my youth.

My girlfriend & I overall had a wonderful experience here! I had the Thai Burger which was delicious & definitely has a spicy kick to it. Although the burgers listed don't have descriptions our waitress was willing & able to inform us on each burger. Onion rings were bomb.com & fries were good but nothing special. Atmosphere was very ... read more

My 4th time coming here in the last 3 months. Everything we've had so far is off the hook. Originally came here because was on Diners Drive Ins & Dives, continue to come back because of friendly staff and great food. Absolute must go to.

The outdoor seating is a bit annoying but with COVID I get that. The burgers are a good size and taste great. Really good ice tea as well.

Tender and Tasty Brisket
I tried the brisket and was extremely happy. (however, they don't call it brisket on the menu but I saw it on the picture so I ordered it.) The beans were flavourful and the coleslaw was delicious. The waitress made us feel welcomed but she...More ... read more

We looked this place up specifically while we were in San Antonio after seeing in on Diner's Drive-Ins and Dives.  While it looks a little sketchy, the staff was friendly and provided good service and the food was great! We ordered the cheeseburger, a BBQ Beef Sandwich, the Chopped Beef Sandwich and a side order of hushpuppies, and a ... read more
