Not Bad Food!

Food is not bad and there is a variety from which to choose. It is always crowded and noisy but that it because it is crowded.

Great Architecture, starting place to handle many business, personal and legal matters. Mostly friendly and helpful staff will guide you to where you need to go. Hopefully you are not on trial there or it could be a different outlook, but this building has history and purpose.

People visit this County Courthouse because it is beautiful. It has a warm feeling while doing such cold business. People go there to get marriage licenses, and other types. They go there to meet with attorneys They pay traffic tickets there and attend court hearings for all kinds of reasons..

A walk through the courthouse is like a walk through time. Impeccable details and beauty. Take a moment to look at the newly restored County Commissioners Court. It's breathtaking!

San Antonio is still conducting Civil cases in this beautiful building. During voting it is done in the basemen here. At Christmas it is decorated in white lights that outline the building. You can see the signs on the building that show what the prior street name was. This is a historic building.

The courthouse has become more accommodating over the years. As I dragged in everyone I met had a positive attitude. Honorable Ron Rangel made us laugh with well-rehearsed stories that correlated to our duties and they even have a digital library for the Jurors. What an improved experience.

This building has been around a long time and it shows. Be aware if you plan to go inside do not carry anything that says "Tactical" on it because you will not be allowed in. I was carrying a small flashlight that said that on there and was denied access.
