LuLu's Cafe is the best chicken fried steak I have found. It WILL fill you up, but on the off chance you are a teenager they also have a Cinnamon Roll that weighs in at 3.5lbs to finish you off.

I don't think there ever was a "Alamo Steakhouse" in San Antonio. Perhaps you are thinking of Alamo Café and many people say their chicken fried steak is good. I personally never had it so I can't comment.

Oh, and Alamo Café is still around. Two locations. One off I-10W and the other off 281N.

According to a recent MySA contest first place was Good Time Charlie's and runner-up was Thousand Oaks Café.

PS: Sixty years back it would have been Cap't Jim's at Loop 13 at Roosevelt and Earl Abel's on Broadway at Hildebrandt.

There was also a place that opened for awhile called Al & Mo's at the old Gallagher's location on I-10 near Wurzbach (it's a taco and ceviche place, now). The were owned by Alamo Cafe but had more of traditional Texas menu with brisket, ribs, steaks, and chicken fried steak.

Thanks to all of you who responded to my post about Chicken Fried steak. The reason I'm coming to SA is to attend a Navy unit reunion and there's lots of my old shipmates who've never had the pleasure of having a Chicken Fried steak or Tex-Mex food so I'm gonna introduce them to some "good eats". I'll let you know how it turns out.

Oh, Azure 110 was right, though, it was the Alamo Cafe I was thinking of.

Default Black cow

Back where I come from a Black Cow was made with grape syrup. A root beer float was just that, a float.
