I am a local not a tourist. Tried here several times hoping it would get better. 45 minutes we waited to food. Much better places to go for food and entertainment in the area.

The food is okay but the drag show on Monday nights is EVERYTHING!!!!! The host is fantastic. The drinks are pretty good and the specials are cheap. Outdoor and indoor sitting. Pet friendly. Laid back vibe.

Okay, I decided to have the wings again, and once again, they were not hot! The next time I come here, and if there is a next time. I'm going to ask for the wing with anything on them. That's way I can see, and show the waiting person if there's no steam coming off the wings, and a dipping... More

They have quite an extensive menu, so there is plenty to choose from. We started with the Southwest egg rolls. They were tasty and pretty decent size. It comes with an order of 3 and they are split in half so it is enough for two to share. They had a proper wrapper to filling ratio and the sweet and... More

8 of us went last night around 2:30 am. No one there eating but us. 2 of us ordered the carne Guisada, it was so dry, the meat tasted like it had been cooked yesterday, no gravy sauce like it's supposed to have. The nachos were good, my friend said his burger was not good. I used to go to... More

This is a chill place to hang after work and enjpy happy hour. They have several beers on draft, some inventive cocktails, their food is about average, is ok, nothing to write home about but never had to send anything back. Attentive enough staff and nicr outside area.

We met here to watch a football game with a group of people. We ordered the wings, which were really good. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. It was a good sized bar and they had a number of tv's up for sports games. The bar was handy to our hotel, so we could walk home after the game and... More

I had their chicken mac and cheese. I ate there two times because the first time was fabulous. The second time was good, but not as good a day one. The reason for a four is the consistency; otherwise it would have been a five. One other time I had visited this establishment and the store was out of many... More

I travel to San Antonio quite often and I make it a point to drop by to Luther's. The burgers are excellent and the service is wonderful. I highly recommend anyone to drop by and try it out. You won't regret it. Be sure you try out the homemade lemonade.
