trip to san antonio
Just returned from a three day trip to San Antonio. Lots of fun, but the heat was almost unbearable!!! Well over 100 from noon until night.
Two stops worth noting...
Bucky's "Truck Stop?" in Luling, TX. Great! Baked goods were awesome (sugar cookies, fudge, and a sort of pig in a blanket with TX sausage). But the best was the beef jerky...Awesome stuff. I bought a 1/2 pound of jalapeno jerky on the way to San Antonio (only about 1 1/2 hours away and ate it before we got to the hotel.) I bought a pound of black peppercorn jerky on the way back, and it's gone now too! Also buffalo and turkey jerky. Wonderful.
We were at Seaworld for a large part of the trip so our dining there wasn't great. However, we did get to eat at one of our favorite restaurants, Rosario's! It was just as good as it was on our honeymoon 4 years ago. The salsa they serve is unbelievable. I'm guessing it's tomatillo (sp?) based, but it has such a smoky aftertone and depth of heat that it's hard to describe. The soups are also top notch. We ate both the jalapeno chicken and classic chicken tortilla soups and loved them both. Our entree's the first night (yes, we ate there twice!) were the chicken chipotle and the spinach enchiladas. They were both excellent. On the second night we again had the soups and the guacamole along with nachos. Once again, excellent. This is by far the best Tex-Mex we've ever eaten, although being from south Louisiana, we probably haven't experienced as much as other have.
Anyone out there ever eaten at these places? Also, if you have other recommendations for San Antonio please provide. We'll be going back next summer.
