|I thought that this would be a good section for the out-of-towners. These are some of mine and Teri's favorite places in this Lovely City. Some are romantic, some are classy; some are just good eats! Pay them a visit!|
Although it's rated in the top ten steakhouses in Texas; from casual/jeans to formal attire, just about anything feels right at home in this earthy/old-world atmosphere.
Feast on free-range chicken roasted on a mesquite grill--built over what used to be a well, at this restaurant, formerly a stagecoach stop that dates back to 1872. Other dishes include warm water lobster (sweeter than Maine lobster) squash au gratin, baked potatoes, and a wine list of more than 500 selections.
Prepare to pay $100-130 for two though... It ain't cheap. However, its small, German B&B atmosphere can't be beat.
Our favorist dish is proabably the felet mignon and grilled lobseter tail. And the port/onion/basil sauteed mushrooms are HEAVEN! I don't recommend the Dom though... it just ain't worth it! ;v)
19010 Scenic Loop Road, Helotes (about ten miles outside San Antonio), 210-695-8301.
Yea, It's a chain... But you must admit, they do it right! They are what you would call, steak connoisseurs.
Each steak is cooked to perfection in an 1,800 degree oven (don't ask me how), and presented on a cast iron plate with a pad of sizzling butter! Outstanding! (if you're a steak nut I guess.)
Go Hungry, dress nice, and be prepared to shell out around $120-140 (for two w/wine).
A very nice place to top off the evening with a late night dessert and Bodum of strong imported Coffee! I am blown away every time I go (AND that most of the locals don't even know the place exists!)!!
If you go nowhere else in San Antonio, check this place out!
