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 Loved the jalapeƱo cheddar burger! Their fries are perfectly crispy and the sweet tea was perfectly refreshing! Will definitely be back! Very nice staff too!
13247 Bandera Rd, Helotes TX — (210) 695-4941
McAlister's Deli The South West Turkey Melt is amazing!
Willie's Grill & Icehouse Fun atmosphere. Family comfort food. Sports & Beer.
yellowfish sushi Wow...just finished. Hands down best sushi ive had outside of orange county. It's possibly better. It's amazing. 5 stars
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 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!
Jersey Mike's Subs I love tuna. And this place is not stingy w the tuna. ;-)
Zito's Delicatessen & Sandwich Remember Zito's closes at 3:00 PM on Saturdays, and is closed on Sundays.
Sangria On The Burg Dirty sanchez sliders, Mac n Cheese and sangrias
La Fogata Perfect margarita is the greatest! Well worth the extra $$!!!
MoMak's Backyard Malts & Burgers Sorta unprofessional they didn't keep up with the Liquor license...
