Finkel's. They were the former Sizzler franchises in San Antonio. They converted to Finkel's in the early 90s, I believe, and were gone by the mid 90s.

I worked at the Gallaghers on I-45 in Webster,Tx. That had to be the best and most fun place to work. The entire staff got along.

We had one of those in corpus christi too. It is also closed, has been for years.

I used to eat there when at Trinity in the mid-70's....not very expensive. It was on McCullough and Hildebrand.

Also, when I lived in Falls Church outside DC, we used to go to the Steak and Egg -- especially for breakfast after 2 AM.

The IH10/Wurzbach location caught fire at some time in the 90's. It was salvaged and reopened as a Tony Roma's which didn't last long. It's been TacoTote for the last 10 years or so

The one I remember that was affordable was Bonanza on Broadway,...I liked it, but there was something about their salad bar I couldn't eat much of,...made my head spin.
