Mamma Mia! If you find yourself starving after watching Ratatouille, then Spaghetti Warehouse may be the restaurant for you. Their unique dining atmosphere includes a home-style/diner eating area, and if you are lucky, you may be seated in the trolley that is the center piece of the restaurant. Come out and enjoy a heaping pile of spaghetti with meatballs, or any other Italian mainstay.
You will not leave this restaurant without feeling completely full! If you do have a small area of your stomach that is unfilled, then you can top it off with a massive dessert of a brownie a la mode, or maybe some New York style cheesecake!
I got the classic spaghetti with meatballs, it was more than enough to fill me up, with the Caesar salad and bread that comes with every meal. I was even able to bring half of it home to eat for lunch sometime this week! So, if you are already craving some of that spicy Italian good-ness then go on down to Spaghetti Warehouse.

Talk about a breakfast for champions! Whether you’re looking for a nice home cooked breakfast with scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and some specialty pancakes, or a nice late morning brunch, this is the place to be. This little diamond in the rough has been featured on the hit tv show Diner-Drive Ins- and Dives, and is known for their delicious pancakes, as their name would imply.
There are only two locations here in San Antonio, one is quite close to the optometry school main campus, off of Huebner road, and the original location, located off of Embassy Oaks. Some claim the original location is superior to the 2nd location off of Huebner, but I will let you decide for yourself. The menu is full of breakfast items, from omelets, to hamburgers. The meal that I usually get is the Magnolia’s Breakfast with coffee. Their coffee is some of the most delicious coffee I have ever tasted! So, my breakfast is scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, and I always get the chocolate chip pancakes!
That’s right, I said chocolate chip! If you can’t tell, I have a bit of a sweet tooth, and boy do those pancakes satisfy its craving. They have many other specialty pancakes that I can’t remember off the top of my head, so you should definitely go check it out yourself! Be ready for a wait though, at the original location, the wait is normally around 1.5-2 hours and at the Huebner location it is around 1 hour, but I guarantee it is worth it!

Now that’s a tasty burger! Located just a short 10 minute drive from RSO. If you are a hamburger connoisseur like me, you will love this place. I’ll start you off by saying, “looks can be deceiving!” When we pulled up to this joint, I was thinking we might be getting a burrito or some tacos again! Boy was I mistaken. They only have 11 items on their menu. 7 of them are burgers! I ended up getting a burger called “Porky’s Delight with Cheddar,” and of course I had it “Macho” sized. Macho is there way of upsizing your burger from a quarter pound to a half pound. So, this wonderful half pound slab of beef stuck between 2 buns was topped with mayo, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, BACON, and cheese.
I’m not a fan of tomatoes, onions, or cheese, so my burger was lacking in those departments. It was one of the best burgers I have eaten, and I have eaten quite a few! Finish off the meal with some homemade fries and an ice-cold coke, now that is a good meal! You might want to go try it out yourself…they also have a unique Tostada burger! I couldn’t tell you how it is because I haven’t tried it yet, maybe next time!
If you’re dying to try it, here is the address and telephone number:

So being a food lover that I am, I go around the town and find new exciting places to dine. I recently came across a place called Picnikins Patio Café. It’s not too far from UIWRSO. I absolutely love this quaint little place. Service was very good.
The atmosphere is relaxed and food is fresh which makes up for the steep price …
I personally recommend the Meatloaf! The Mediterranean platter with fresh toasted pita triangles is also very delicious. This place is perfect for table of 2-4, but more than that may be a bit of a wait.
I would highly recommend this bistro restaurant which serves delicious food and has a great atmosphere.
