What kind of restaurant (i.e. Mexican, Italian, Fusion, Sushi, etc) is San Antonio missing. If you could have a new restaurant open, what would it be?

When i was in colorado springs there was a place called "Old Chicagos"

Best pizza and they also had a world beer tour for all the beer snobs out there. Great food and atmosphere. I do miss that place.

Old Chicago Neighborhood Restaurant and Tavern with over 110 Beers, Chicago-Style Pizza and Pasta

Looks like a chain that franchise's. You should become a franchisee.

We are obviously missing another Cheddar's placed in Alamo Ranch. If the one they opened at 410 and Military is constantly filled to capacity requiring a 45 minute wait, they need to build another one close by; in Alamo Ranch!

I think we could also benefit from a few YakiMandu stands.

You need a 'None' option, as there really isn't a shortage of restaurants in SA! If there is a desire for a specific cuisine, there’d be a place for it!

That said, Boise had a Deli on 6th Street that made pizzas to kill for. You would pick the ingredients as you walked down the deli, then they’d make your pizza and you’d be in heaven. I don’t know if it is still around as this was nearly 25 years ago, but I still remember it fondly to this day!

Cheers! M2

I agree with M2, there is really no specific cuisine shortage, there is an overage of Steak and Burger joints imo.
My choices to add would be some chains that I went to when I lived in San Diego, CA:Pat & Oscars, Unos Chicago Grill, In-N-Out, Del Taco and Rubios! None of them fancy, just good food.

Good, cheap, family-owned (NON-CHAIN) St. Louis-style Italian.

Not exactly sure what we NEED, but I know what we DON'T need...

No more large-scale chains. No more fast-food. Not another $5.99 buffet, serving mounds of food to folks who should likely not be there in the first place.

In saying this I realize that it's all about personal choice and opinion. If I had to say what we did need, I'd likely offer up more local spots, homegrown by SA-based chefs. Fusion would be great. I'd love to see more places for authentic ethnic foods (not just Mexican) and slobber over the thought of traditional Asian noodle soups here in San Antonio.


PS: In-And-Out will NEVER, EVER come to San Antonio. Let's just accept that
