I've never not seen it busy, but it's worth it. That's probably one of the best places to eat in SA and the owners are retired USAF. I went through TAP class with them when Mama Lee's was nothing but an idea in their heads.
Best thing about it is the natural diversity. So much better than the forced diversity or the retards going somewhere just so they can call it diversity.

I like this idea green! I don't think they "have enough money" to do it though! All I've heard since I moved to SA is how the road systems people don't have enough money. I've never seen such a large populated city, with such high taxes, complain so much about lack of funds!!! Where is my tax money REALLY going???

From what I've heard, TxDOT loses a lot of money to other programs. I don't know if it's true or not, but it was explained that way during one of our neighborhood meetings.

If roads city-wide are so terrible that they make the news, how is it so easy to take money from TxDOT? Are there budgeting or planning issues instead? How did they NOT build sidewalks by that school?

Drove past WalMart on my way home today, and I was finally able to determine what the construction is that's going on there. It appears to be...a gas station! Just what we need...

Do you guys have a couple of check-cashing places to go along with that?

As far as I know, there is only one within about a block radius. I bet they could squeeze a couple more in! In fact, I bet they could put in another strip mall right behind that new gas station. How convenient for everyone! Personally, it is still too far for me to walk.

If every day would be like the last two, I would walk to quite a few different places. Hell, I'd even walk to the HEB+ if there was a safe place to walk on Potranco and 1604. Wouldn't catch me dead out there walking the way it is now though. It's dangerous enough just sitting at a stop light..

COSTCO Update:

The Costco near 1604 & Potranco is still a go for Fall '09. This info according to a Costco employee at the UTSA location.
