Re:Chicago/San Antonio via Amtrak
Thanks Big Al for the trip report.Next time you come down, try Black's or Kreuz's
in Lockhart.Also, you can try City Market in Luling.Gonzales City Market in Gonzales,Tx has a place now on W.W.White Road,and they have a website.They also do bbq. Another place that's popular on W.W.White is Mr.And Mrs.G's. It's soul food served cafeteria style. I plan this summer when I take vacation or sooner, to try it out.Both are on the east side of San Antonio. The King William district dates back to victorian times and was largely a german residential area.Another fancy residential area is Monte Vista,and the community of Alamo Heights,on Broadway near the University of the Incarnate Word. Both have lots of large houses and bungalows.
I have heard of TacoTaco, and La Fonda, just haven't been to either one. Sometimes puffy tacos can be a little greasy.Henry's Puffy Tacos specializes in them,and they are the sponsors of the San Antonio Missions baseball team mascot, The Puffy Taco.Yes, they actually have someone dressed up like a taco.During half time or whenever, kids chase the puffy taco around the field and try to catch him. A good place for burgers north east of SA is CBQ here in Schertz,and Bracken Cafe in Bracken ,Texas, out on Nacogdoches Road past Rolling Oaks Mall.Pioneer Flours founded by C.E.Guenther is still in business, just have'nt eaten there, or at the Botanical Garden in the old stone carriage house they moved there.
