One can't visit San Antonio and not stop for a burger at LC Cafe. It's always our first stop off the plane. Not fancy - just the opposite - but a friendly staff - inexpensive and good food.

We've been eating at Longhorn Cafe for well over 20 years and they still have the BEST burgers in San Antonio and maybe even the State! Big, juicy burgers! Can't be beaten!

They do not call the Longhorn the Home of the Big Juicy just as a catch phrase. Order an original hamburger with all the fixins and you will agree - juicy. Nothing fancy here, but a Great burger. You will not leave hungry

I can't believe I ate here. You walk in and think, "oh kinda divey, but could be cool". You order and then sit down to wait for the food. While waiting, you can't help but notice all the dirt on the ceiling and grime in the corners of the floor. They have kids working there and I think there was... More

Their juicy burgers with cheese are the best! The buns are super fresh and the burgers have lots of lettuce & tomato just like I love. The half & half order of tater tots & onion rings is huge. Onion rings were lightly seasoned & delicious. Their prices are pretty cheap compared to other places. We love, love this place... More

We have always enjoyed the food and unfortunately moved away. Went back today while on the road. We were not disappointed.

That's a question you don't have to ask at Longhorn. It was one of our favorite places to eat while we lived in San Antonio. REALLY good burgers as well as everything else we tried. It's actually "a hole in the wall", but the rusticity of the place just adds to the ambience. There's also outside dining available.

The Longhorn Cafe serves one of the best burgers in San Antonio. I really enjoyed their Cheeseburger combo. Their burgers compete side by side with Chris Madrid's and Hopdaddy.

An institution in San Antonio. Opened a second location on I-10 a few years back-the original still on Blanco. This is where you go for a big ol cheeseburger with homemade fries. You stand in line & place your order then find your own table. Has some outdoor picnic table seating as well. They have other things like grilled cheese... More

We've been all over South Texas looking for a better burger, but have never found one that beats this one right near home. Try the fried okra instead of french fries. We also love the tater tots. I think the cheeseburger is just about perfect but my daughter swears the guacamole burger just takes it to the next level!
