    I have 2 restaurants I must visit when I’m in San Antonio. Mi Tierra, and LuLu’s.

    You really like LuLu's? The big cinnamon roll is great but the chicken fried steak always gave me bubble guts. I didn't go back after the second time.

    If anyone likes ceviche then 210 Ceviche is a great place.

    Taquitos West Avenue is a great spot for street tacos.

    I, long ago, used to eat at the actual original Taco Cabana that was in a repurposed Dairy Queen at San Pedro and McCullough.
    Ya, as a kid in the 70s.
    Is it still there?

    Taco Cabana continues to be consistent and predictable.
    That is an OK thing.

    I'd been thinking hard to remember a fine TX-Mexican place a buddy took me at 1AM a year ago when I was staying near SATX airport for a symposium.
    A-Ha!! Found it.
    Los Balitos.
    A hole in the wall in a strip center.
    Been there years and open 24/7/365 it seems.
    Was quite excellent and I think quite authentic.
    A very positive-predictor metric was that none of the employees spoke much English.
    Brought back some primal memories from my youth.

    Houston must have some crappy BBQ. I thought the Q at Bill Miller was mediocre at best.

    I remember that location. I don't know if it's still there though.

    I believe it was the corner of San Pedro and W. Hildebrande.

    Years ago while in San Antonio a friend dragged to Bill Millers. He was on his phone just before we went in & I watched this police take down in the lot. I was pretty impressed how it went & getting to see it live. He didn't even notice it.

    I thought the food was ok. He said you use to be able to go in at closing time & they would load you up rather the throw it out.

    Peter El Norteno’s: On Fredricksburg Rd just north of downtown.

    My favorite mom/pop Mexican food for lunch.

    Lunch specials depend on what day you go but they all include tea. $5.99 fajitas, $5.99 CFS, $5.99 burger fries (great burger), $3.99 burger/fries and more. (Downside, no free chips/salsa, but I’m okay with that.)

    Great salsa and tortillas.
