I used to love MK Davis as a kid.

I went back this summer... and, not so good.

We waited in line for 20 mins just to have 2 roaches crawl out of the wall and on to our table right as i took the first bite of my food.... I was disgusted.

We told the waitress, she told the manager and they didn't know what to say. They said we didn't have to pay, so we just left.

I feel bad , but that is GROSS.

My personal favorites are Acenar, Rudy's BBQ, BLanco Cafe, Tip Top's, The Iron Cactus, Chris Madrids, Twin Sisters, Tomatillos, Henry's Puffy Tacos, Godai, & Rosarios.

We visited on our last trip to SA and look forward to eating there once we move next summer.

Blessings,

I have recently found out that I have celiac disease and was THRILLED to find out about this place. I will be moving to SA Feb 1 and can't wait to get to this place!!!

As the guy who started this thread, Zio's and Applebee's are chain restaurants and shouldn't be mentioned here. My intent was to highlight the locally owned and unique restaurants.

That being said, I didn't know Applebee's offered a Weight Watchers menu. Thanks for the info. As someone whose weight needs to be watched (and dropped) I am probably going go there (in college, I dated a girl for a short time who worked there). For the most part, they actually don't suck (except for their steaks) Their Asian Chicken Salad is pretty damn good!

The sad thing is that outside of GINI'S, San Antonio's local restaurants don't offer much in the way of healthy food. So the Applebee's mention is especially appealing to me.

But Zio's? C'mon, that's just wrong.

Try Instead:

Piccolos's
Grissini's
Lorenzo's

The Capparelli's on Evers is really good, consistently. The one on Babcock and Huebner is good, just not as consistent, in my experience.

Texas Hamburger Company is good, but they've gotten greasier over the years. Or maybe they always were and I am just paying better attention to it now.

The House of Pizza is making a comeback with my family. They seem to be settled right now with decent help. The food has always been good--from burgers to Chinese to stromboli to subs to actual pizza, they even have wings, which is like the only thing we haven't tried--and the last 2 times we went were actually enjoyable. (I'm only talking about the one at Tezel/Timber Path.)

I'm glad to hear that place is still around. I use to live in the subdivision south of there - we went a lot - had the same waitress who saw my son grow from a baby to about 2 years old when we moved.
You too!!

That place is so friendly and so homey.
