My experience at Perrin Beitel was the first AND LAST time I'll set foot in there. The other Jims have been great.
Next (?) time I will try to take a picture! I wonder if that would make them think that something is wrong there...

Went to Babe's in Helotes today.
The burgers were good and I would definitely go back. The fries are homemade.

The patties are not made on site, but overall they were good.

We went to Brasserie Pavil on Saturday night for a celebratory dinner. The food was fine but the service was abysmal. We kept having to get up and help ourselves to water at the service station, as the waiter rarely came to check on us. When I finally called him out on his inattentiveness, he was really sarcastic to me. The manager came over and offered us a free round of wine. Of course after they brought the mini carafes for each of us, my mother had to traipse around the restaurant looking for someone to bring her a wine glass. The bill for four of us was $187 excluding tip. We'll never go back to that restaurant again, as I think that for the price we deserve decent service. My friend and I met at Tomatillo's on Broadway Sunday night for dinner, and the service there was a million times better than at Brasserie Pavil.

Haven't been to a Jim's the time I have lived in SA, 4 1/2 yrs.

Went to one for breakfast about 5 yrs ago while visiting though - not much different than a Denny's I suppose.

Are there Denny's in SA or does Jim's have those bases covered?

Edit - I seem to remember a funky looking one on Broadway - with lot's of glass, mirrored outside and shiny green accents...

Thai Bistro on DeZavala near the post office. Just had the lunch specials and they were pretty tasty. Service was friendly. Don't get soup with lunch or a spring roll but the portions were big enough.

I'll go back.

Lots of DENNYS in SA, check the YPs for locations.

The Broadway one is a DENNY's "DINER", I seem to reall they have a slightly different menu (fewer dinner entrees), but I'm not positive.

I think DENNY's breakfasts are slightly better than JIMS, but I love JIMS cheese soup, and the fish (not fresh) is pretty good.

Denny's Dine on Broadway has closed.

Denny's has a downtown location by the new LaQuinta.

Chama Gaucha- Meat Quality C-/D+, Salad Bar B+, cheese rolls & other accompaniments at table A-, dessert B-, service B+, wine list B-, setting for large groups A (noise was not a factor and the space was inviting). Cost approximates $55 pp w/ food, drink, and tax.

We recently went to Chama Gaucha and would give most catagories an A/A+, sorry your experience wasn't at that level, especially suprised you rated the meat so low, any particular reason?
