We hadn’t visited in, well, forever, but found the little building’s white stucco façade looking fine after a spiffing up earlier this year. “Steaks” and “Whisky” (per the neon window signs) still rule the roost at this venerable San Antonio standard, which continues four decades of serving good comfort food in a space that makes you want to wear your boots and cowboy hat. Booths, a few outdoor tables, wood floors, and a decent-sized bar create its genuine roadhouse and western charm. And yes, you can still get a decent seven-ounce sirloin for under $20 (or try tenderloin chunks on a generous green salad). You can also dine on home-style plates like liver and onions, meat loaf, and CFS (that’s chicken-fried steak, you visitors). We were quite impressed with the fish and chips, generous and perfectly fried in a tempura-light batter. As usual, sports-minded customers can get a free bus ride to the Spurs’ home games with entrée purchase—first come, limited seats, no reservations.
