After a change of owners, a destructive fire, and a pandemic, who knew Chris Madrid’s could bounce back so nicely. There’s much to love, like the juicy burgers, baskets of fries, and piled-high chalupas. But we don’t think its possible to leave without a Tostada Burger, loaded with refried beans and melty cheddar cheese. San Antonio is simply better for this marvel, which is fully customizable with add-ons like sour cream, grilled onions, and jalapeños (just keep the napkins nearby). If the evening is mild, make the most of the sprawling patio, complete with a live-music stage and a private party house.
