The Dodging Duck also has great food and a nice patio across the street from Cibolo Creek - it is my favorite casual spot in Boerne. And, yes, they have some nice brews as well!

Everything we've tried on the menu has been very good. My wife loves the Thai and Korean lettuce wraps, and I prefer the hearty German sausage plate meals. Their German potato salad is incredible.

Boy, I haven't been to Jacala's in quite a few years, did they close? I used to eat there quite often until I move to the northeast part of town. Anyway, I found the puffy tacos at El Maracumbe on Austin Highway at Harry Wurzback to be extraordinary. Hope you try them.

Default "Asian Fix"

For ANYONE needing or wanting a FANTASTIC "Asian fix"...I highly recommed Il Song Gardens at Blanco and 410...in the same "strip mall" as "Dough" and had the BEST Udon noodle soup I have had since moving from Japan last night....Korean and Japanese food is WONDERFUL, especially when it is cooler in temp!!!

I noticed the other night that the Lagniappe Today San Antonio Food Truck, San Antonio Food Trucks has a concession booth on the second level at the AT&T Center. I always figured that most of these food truck operators aspire to open their own restaurants. A concession booth at the city's busiest sports arena is an interesting twist on that progression.

$25 gift certificante at Restaurant.com. I've lately seen deals for this. Buy $25 of stuff and get. Chevron had one such deal with their credit card. That was no biggy as I have to buy gas. But I see them from other more discretionary sites. Anyway, so I get it and it's a big disengenous. For lots of the restaurants, you have to spend significantly more than 25 to use the certificate. Also, the list of restaurants to be blunt - doesn't include our finer establishment. Thus, you spend alot but with a discount at a so, so place.

Not that great a deal.

Finally got a chance to grab some grub from there last night. The burgers aren't bad but they are smaller than expected. They "grill" their logo into the bun, which is creative but doesn't really add to the experience. The fries would have been great if they weren't drowning in sea salt. They have Mexican Coke and Fanta Orange, but they're $2.75 a bottle which is a bit much. They also have those fancy soda dispensing machines which my teenage son thinks are great, but I'm less impressed.

The food was tasty but I had indigestion all evening. It's pretty greasy so if anyone is sensitive to that, steer clear. We paid $35 for three burgers, two fries and three Mexican sodas. Personally for that much money I'd drive a little further down Bandera Road and go to Bobby J's!

So is BurgerFi simply SmashBurger with a changed name? I went so Smash Burger once and was not impressed. I remember telling my wife the burgers were just a tad better than a Wendys burger but at 3x the price. I never went back and probably wont try this new place after your post...Seems a tad expensive

No. The BurgerFi at Bandera Pointe replaced Smashburger.

Quote:

BurgerFi is a North Palm Beach, Fla.-based hamburger chain (at least I got that part right) that is championing the “Burgerfication of the Nation.” That means offering a product made of 100-percent Angus beef.

Consider Denver-based Smashburger, which gets its name from the signature touch in its cooking process: The Angus beef is smashed on a buttered grill, creating a caramelized coating of juices on the bottom of the patty.
BurgerFi decides to amplify its presence in San Antonio - San Antonio Business Journal
