After the Ride: Local Favorites

B Daddy's BBQ Stopped in for the 1 year shindig. Still the best brisket sandwich that I've eaten!
Bobby J's Old Fashion Hamburgers Great place. Brunette Hispanic lady is fine.
13247 Bandera Rd, Helotes TX — (210) 695-4941
McAlister's Deli The South West Turkey Melt is amazing!
La Cabana Cafe Better for Breakfast
Willie's Grill & Icehouse Fun atmosphere. Family comfort food. Sports & Beer.
French Sandwiches Try the homemade honey mustard dressing
chin's garden Bad even by the standards of American Chinese food. Flavorless. Avoid.
Chick-fil-A Medical Center In my opinion this is the best Chick-fil-a ever! The staff are always friendly and fast even with long lines. :) This place is always clean too.
yellowfish sushi Order the cevishimi ! With a cucumber sunomono ! Btw it is spicy!
Thai Hut I love this Thai place. Its one of the best in San Antonio. I love their tofu drunken noodle. It's a great place for vegans, lots of options
Lenny's Sub Shop Price is not an issue because the regular size is over a half pound well worth the 6.35 because no one in town puts that much food on a sub
Taqueria Data Point Love the salsa they give you for the chips! I use it on everything!
Sangria On The Burg This place is amazing. The sangria is refreshing and unique. I recommend trying a flight of sangria. Everything on the menu is yummy. The fried Arroz con leche balls are amazeballs!!
Goro's Sushi The salmon raw sushi here is soooo good! I tried both the smoked salmon & sake (raw) salmon and definitely preferred the raw salmon.
2619 Mossrock, San Antonio TX — (210) 349-8117
Babe's Old Fashioned Hamburgers Eating at the place my dad designed on the inside. I love the moon on the RR door & his idea of sliding the food tickets down the wire. He was also the honey mustard sampler.
MoMak's Backyard Malts & Burgers Sorta unprofessional they didn't keep up with the Liquor license...
Fattboy Burgers & Dogs This place is FANTASTIC! Everything is fresh (no freezer here), meat is well seasoned and the staff is super friendly. New favorite burger joint!
