Had the following. Pig sandwich- great briquet with good sides. The onion rings are home safe and greatly breaded. Fried chicken - home made. It just had a long wait which they warn you about.

Save yourself a trip and don't come here. it is not what it used to be. The food fell flat and the place was just a bit dirty. It has the feel of a restaurant going down hill to the end, but is too stubborn...More

Been coming here for more than 50 yrs and find the place to be every bit as good as it was "back in the day". Food is fantastic, a true jewel of nostalgia in San Antonio....for those of us that remember fondly the Butter Crust...More
