Cappy's for brunch. They make a great gumbo, but the pot roast was salty and parts overcooked and dry.

Pasha Mediterranean... (Vineyard)

Had the Pasha Kebab Combo (Beef Kebab and Beef Koobideh)...yummy. Extended family enjoyed everything, especially the fresh, hot bread (naan or pits). A definite return!

I recently hosted an event at the Boiler House for about 50 people. The planning process left something to be desired, but the food was pretty good, albeit all hors d'oeuvres type fare.

Tried Nao recently, and aside from some ceviche that didn't have much flavor, was quite pleased. Nopal & Panela and Nao Taco de jour were especially good.

Yard House. Impressive menu, even more impressive beer list. Food was bleh. Calamari was nasty and rubbery.

Mmmmmm, brussel sprouts. Not many people like them, and it has been awhile since I have had them. Your home made meal sounds yummy! "Marie" roasted potatoes, I am going to assume that is the name of the woman who made them? Anything special about them or are they just roased potatoes?

Mrs. Bo thought she smelled sewer gas in the dining room. I was too congested to smell anything.

On balance, I'm fairly sure we'd go back if we were in the area, but it wasn't special enough to warrant a special trip to Helotes.
I went to BobbyJ's once, and was not impressed. I just cannot justify the price charged for burgers and fries at these specialty restaurants. If I want a burger, I get one off the dollar menu at a fast food joint. I think it is outrageous the cost of a Big Mac, Quarter pounder, etc. so I don't get them. I can make burgers at home, the boutique price of them at these high-end restaurants is outrageous. Then again, I am not a big eater, if I am hungry a bowl of cereal will do the trick. When I go out I want to go to a restaurant where I can order food I don't make at home. JMHO.

We gave it a try this evening, waited 40 minutes for 'cold' enchiladas and 'cold' tacos al carbon..........but hey, the beans were hot.

Las Palapas $$
Mia's $$$

Yes, 40 minutes
I agree, this place sucked. I was hoping it was just a Las Palapas name change for some reason. Waited for about 15 minutes in the drive thru for enchiladas. When I got home and opened it up, I was really let down. The food was just thrown in there as a mess and it wasnt warm or even good. We used to eat at the Palapas all the time but I will never go back to Mia's.

Went on to yelp.com just to check out reviews and i was shocked to see all the good reviews saying how great the food was. I usually take online reviews with a grain of salt but those just seemed to good. I know of 5 people who have been there and none went back.
