Always try to stop at willies when in S. A. Stopped for late lunch with the Chicken Tenders and Pulled Pork sandwich on the menu. Quick to order but it was busy and the meal took awhile to arrive. All was hot and fresh. Tenders were perfect as were the fries. Pulled pork also good but included too much fat... More

Before I even arrived this time around I noticed a few posts on my social media from friends who had enjoyed this place. I was finally convinced to check it out a few days ago. It is filled with your quirky southwest items you... More

Nice place to go for lunch but not on Saturday or Sunday. The outside patio is dominated by a large sand pit full of old plastic shovels and buckets and way, way too many kids. Food is OK but nothing special. Service was a bit above average but a bit strange to order before you are seated, sorta like a... More

Went here for a benefit for a Brother in Blue, Riely Gobeil, who is fighting cancer. I was proud to know that ALL tables had a portion going to Riely's cause, whether the customer said they were there for him or not. I love how they back the blue. The food was great! I had a turkey/mushroom burger and couldn't... More

Great boiled seafood. My wife and I crave crawfish being from New Orleans and they have scratched the itch. Tasty and well priced.

Classic local Texas hangout. Wonderful burgers but the most tasty dish on the menu is the onion rings. I go there JUST for them. Handmade wide cut onions hand dipped and fried crisp. The best in the city.

Go here every time I visit San Antonio and it never disappoints. This time I tried something new, the fried shrimp po-boy and it was excellent! Great quality shrimp which was delicious. The bread was a little flaky but I'm probably over critical as I work in the bakery industry and sell solutions to improve poor quality bread :). Great... More
